It wasn’t a pretty win away in Russia, but it was an efficient one as expected, as Chelsea picked up all three points with a heavy 4-0 scoreline.

Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi scored the opener for the Blues just before half-time, with Krasnodar goalkeeper Matvei Safonov fumbling his shot into the net.

The 19-year-old was happy with his goal and didn’t seem to care about the goalkeeper’s mistake.

“I’ll take any goal that comes my way,” he said. “It was a shot that the goalkeeper mis-parried and it went in but a goal is a goal, so you try to keep improving and get more.

“We worked really hard from the start and we deserved our goals with the way we played. There were a few times when we were lackadaisical, a bit slow at times, but after that we grew into the game and we took our chances well.

“I am really happy with the team performance,” Hudson-Odoi added.

“We worked really hard, we took our chances and we defended as a team, went forward as a team and collectively what the manager wanted, we did in the game. So we are really happy with what we did and hopefully we continue like this.”
