Hakim Ziyech scored the winner for Chelsea in the 53rd minute after Tuchel’s men were unable to break the opposition defence in a goalless first half.

A well worked pass and move routine in a tight spot between Callum Hudson Odoi and Kia Havertz opened the space for a pass into the penalty box that found the Tunisian who tucked in the goal from close range to break the deadlock.

The 23-year-old came in as substitute to replace Callum Hudson Odoi in 75th minute and missed a golden opportunity to double the lead for the Blues.

The defending Champions will be looking to secure a spot in the round of 16 before the last round of matches.
