Chelsea have beaten Lille at Stamford Bridge in their final Champions League group match to head through to the knockout rounds.
The Blues went in 2-0 up and half time and were absolutely cruising against a very poor opposition in Lille, who to be fair to them have rested many of their key players this evening.
Chelsea definitely took advantage of that in the first half and were full of determination and physicality responding to what their manager Frank Lampard has asked from them after the lacklustre defeat to Everton at the weekend.
However, the second half Lille stepped up their intensity and caused Chelsea a lot more problems, although The Blues didn’t helped themselves and dropped their efforts bizarrely.
In true Chelsea style this season, they allowed Lille back in to pull a goal back through former player Loic Remy, and made for a very nervous last ten minutes!
Here is how Chelsea Twitter reacted…
We will get massively exposed by the clubs that have made it through to the last 16. It’s great that we’ve got there but won’t get any further

How was that even close? Wow, such a great game from #Chelsea and yet it was close til the end. We need to start taking our chances and kill off these games. Should have been 8-1.
We are through, though. 🙏

That was harder than it should have been…

An in-form Jorginho is the best regista in the world and an in-form Willian is as skillful as Neymar!
A perfect nail-biting game at the team, but there's a lot to improve defensively!
Batshuayi is the most laziest player I've ever seen!
Hope we use Winter TW perfectly!#CHELOSC
