However, no shots were directed towards the goal between the six opportunities created at Stamford Bridge, while Chelsea directed the opposing goal 7 of their 11 shots.

The game started well for Lampard’s team, who played well with Dead Ball.

Similarly, he opened the scoring in the 10th minute after a corner kick topped Brazilian defender Thiago Silva.

But with the advantage on the scoreboard, Chelsea gave up dominance.

German striker Timo Werner does not live his best moment with 9 goals to 9, and on Monday he hit a number of crosses and kicks.

But luck did not stop him and in those precarious shots the ball went to Tummy Abraham, which was started by Olivier Giroud, who scored 2–0 in 78 minutes.

Two minutes later, Abraham again declared a win without a score with the goalkeeper on the field after a collision with the opponent.
