Chelsea vs Lille OSC Highlights



78' GOAL! 2-1 LILLE! Hello! What's this? Remy scores on his return to Stamford Bridge! Lille put together some nice work-up play to set up Bamba with a cross from the left. Bamba cuts back to Remy on the penalty spot who lashes home off the crossbar!


35' GOAL! 2-0 CHELSEA! Chelsea's captain Azpilicueta gets on the end of Emerson's corner, making a free run towards the near post to arrow a header past Maignan. That's his second in six this European campaign.

33' Pulisic darts into the box and reaches the byline, skipping over several challenges. The American cuts the ball back for Abraham but Gabriel is there to boot it out for a Chelsea corner. 
 
32' Chelsea look comfortably the better side at the moment. Lille aren't threatening at all. It's just as well, as Valencia are winning 1-0 against Ajax in Amsterdam. Chelsea need this win to qualify if things stay the same there. 
 
30' Willian switches the play to the left flank where Pulisic feeds Emerson. Emerson cuts inside to send a curling right-footed effort towards goal that's straight at Maignan.

19' GOAL! 1-0 CHELSEA! Kante chests down a pass for Pulisic who slides Willian in on the right of the box. Willian fires across the face of goal and Abraham cheekily backheels it in! It's a deserved lead for the home side.
 
17' Chelsea are getting closer to opening the scoring. Pulisic plays inside to Kante who's lurking on the edge of the box. The Frenchman's first shot is blocked and his second goes just wide. 
 
16' Chelsea almost get the lead! Kante shows great strength to whip the ball in from the right. Abraham swipes at it wildly and it lands to Emerson who has a pop from inside the box. Maignan gets a nice hand to it to keep things level for now.  
 
15' Kante and Willian put together some nice interplay down the right flank to allow Azpilicueta to get in a free cross. His low effort reaches Djalo at the far post who puts his foot through it. 
 
13' Djalo slightly underhits a back-pass to his keeper, allowing Abraham to race in. Maignan clears without any fuss. 
 
12' Lille are having to be content with defending for now. Pulisic races forward down the left but Djalo is there to intercept his cross. Lille aren't convincing in clearing it though, mucking around at the back until it's played off Emerson for a goal-kick. 
 
10' Lille back off, almost to their cost. Abraham latches onto a direct ball and lays off to the arriving Pulisic, who dances into the box and drags a left-footed shot just wide of the far post. 
 
9' Willian picks up the ball in an inside-right position. Xeka steps on the Brazilian's right foot just as he pops the ball to Abraham - no free-kick. It's intercepted by Pied anyway. 
 
8' Lille look to counter from the corner until Rudiger steps in. Araujo stays down temporarily as he's accidentally caught in the face by Rudiger's trailing arm.  
 
7' Willian whips in the corner right-footed and it's put out for another Chelsea corner. This time Willian's delivery is easy for Maignan to gather. 
 
6' Kante bustles down the left flank under pressure from Djalo. The 19-year-old defender gets a foot to the ball and puts it out for Chelsea's first corner of the game. 
 
4' Chelsea are stroking the ball around nicely in these opening minutes. Rudiger launches a long ball forward for Abraham. The English striker runs onto it but chests it straight to Maignan in the Lille goal. 
 
2' Kante tries to burst down the right flank in characteristic fashion, only to let himself down with a poor touch. The ball goes out of play for a Lille throw-in. 
 
1' Lille get this final Group H game underway!
