Rudiger tweeted: “That feeling of being a father for the first time is just incredible ❤️ Welcome to the world, Djamal Sahr Rüdiger.”

Congratulations Rudiger.

Meanwhile, Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta has admitted he was surprised Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso escaped a red card during the victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

“Honestly you know I’m not a player that likes to be on the floor because I’m a defender I’m tough and I make fouls,” Azpilicueta told BT Sport after the game.

“It was a clear stamp on my shin and I felt it straight away and I was surprised it was not a red card and not even a yellow card.

“Obviously everybody can make mistakes but when you have a lot of replays it could make it easier.”
