Chelsea walk past Brentford with important player scoring a hattrick in unusual friendly
We’ve had the first reports back from Chelsea’s closed doors friendly against Brentford, and thankfully the news is good.
After a dreadful end to the pre World Cup fixtures, losing 1-0 to Aston Villa last weekend didn’t feel great. The fact that we were playing a very youthful team didn’t ease the pain much.
But since then a lot of those Chelsea players who had been in Qatar have returned to the squad, and are now training with the first team.
One of them – Kai Havertz – apparently netted as hattrick as Chelsea won 5-1. With Armando Broja now out, that was just the good news we needed a we worry about our striking options.
Told Chelsea beat Brentford 5-1 in the behind closed doors friendly.
Both World Cup internationals and academy players used in both teams.
The match was played in an unusual three 45 minutes ‘halves’ format to give everyone minutes
Don’t read into that scoreline too much and think it was a total goal fest though – Nizaar Kinsella points out that it was a game of three 45 minutes halves given the number of changes both teams were making
