In Champions League Group E after Olivier Giroud scored four a second-string Chelsea side thrashed Sevilla to seal the top spot.
The Blues had maximum value for Giroud’s opener as he had time to turn on his left foot and side-foot home after Kai Havertz had set up.
For Chelsea, only Edouard Mendy and Mateo Kovacic kept eleven spots from Sunday’s Spurs draw, struck from the outset, and after eight minutes.
Sevilla had most of the action for the majority of the first half, but Chelsea still looked the more threatening side and came out brightly after the break with the French striker doubling the lead after being played in by Kovacic with a cultured dink over Alfonso Pastor.
N’Golo Kante was forced on by a triple change halfway through the half and he crossed wonderfully from the right flank for his compatriot 16 minutes from time to power a header home in trademark style.
Giroud was bundled over in the box by Sergi Gomez with seven minutes to go and dusted himself off to give Pastor the wrong direction from the spot before Frank Lampard eventually had grace on his opponents and took him off.
Chelsea currently has 13 points out of five games, with Sevilla now securing a spot in the next round with 10 points.
