Chelsea’s development squad got off to winning ways in the Premier League 2 on Monday night with a couple of first team stars also featuring alongside their youth squad.

Senior boss Frank Lampard was in attendance as Antonio Rudiger managed 90 minutes whilst Michy Batshuayi netted a brace as they secured a 3-0 victory over Liverpool at Stamford Bridge.
