Chelsea “London Blues” win as the guest’s over France football club Rennes 1-2 in a great match last night.
Frank Lampard’s men qualify for the Champions League knockout stage after a big win in Rennes. The Blues nearly took the lead early on, but Timo Werner failed to convert Callum Hudson-Odoi’s cross.
However, in the 22nd minute, Chelsea took the lead. Mason Mount’s brilliant ball found the feet of Hudson-Odoi to score his second Champions League goal of the season.
In the second half, Chelsea was under the cosh at the time. They were made to rue their missed chance on the eighty-fifth minute when Serhou Guirassy equalized from a Rennes corner. Chelsea responded six minutes later with Olivier Giroud coming up with the good to net Chelsea’s winner and seal the victory.
The Blues midfielder has issued a rallying cry while urging his team to not take their good start for granted
Mason Mount has called on Chelsea to push for the Premier League title this season after a run of five wins in a row sees the club just two points away from the top spot.
The most recent win over Newcastle saw Chelsea briefly go top of the table, but rivals Tottenham and Liverpool leapfrogged the Blues again to leave them in third.
After Tuesday’s away Champions League clash with Rennes, Mount’s side will welcome Spurs to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
