A sold-out Stamford Bridge witnessed the Frank Lampard’s Chelsea beat Grimsby 7-1 and book a passage to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.
The victory was Chelsea’s first home win of the season and it was also Chelsea’s record home win in the League Cup competition.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was delighted with comfortable victory over Grimsby.
“I am pleased we had some players who had not been playing so many minutes, and players who are young who started the game with some debuts given,” Lampard said after our record League Cup victory over Grimsby.
“And the two young lads who came on in the second half [Ian Maatsen and Tino Anjorin] improved the team which is great to see.
“So there were some nice minutes and a nice comfortable win having not won at Stamford Bridge before that, so on those levels I am happy.
“The young players have deserved to get into the team. From Billy Gilmour it was a fantastic full debut, he ran the game from midfield.
“Marc Guehi was solid and they have deserved their starts from the way the way they train with us and the way they play for the Under-23s. They have been outstanding this year.
“The young boys who came on as subs are still really young and they showed their comfort on the ball. Now the hard work really begins to try to get in there regularly and show they are worthy of being in the squad.”
