Alvaro Morata was the hero courtesy of his two goals in the second-half, but teenage sensation proved his quality by assisting both after trickery in wide areas.

Maurizio Sarri’s side managed to make rotations to his side and attention will now turn to Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg on Tuesday.

It was a professional display from Chelsea to win in the cup, but a selection of fans were still seething with Barkley for his contribution.

Despite improving slightly in the second-half, it was another game where the Chelsea ace was unable to get on the scoresheet or create too much.
