The Debrief: Half-time substitutes shine in ‘game of two halves’

He linked up superbly well for Hudson-Odoi’s goal which put us in sight of taking something from the game and, as our touch map above highlights, Kai was happy to help the team in both the offensive and defensive phases.

Havertz had a passing accuracy of 92.7 per cent, laid on two key passes for his team-mates and was on target with both shots at goal he registered.

Azpi’s impact from the bench

Sometimes you just need that extra bit of experience and leadership to help out and that’s exactly what Cesar Azpilicueta gave us when he came on at half-time.

Marcos Alonso was the unlucky Chelsea player to make way for the skipper at the break, with Azpi moving over to left-back with minimal fuss and helping out at both ends of the pitch.

The Spaniard won four of his aerial duels, had 74 touches despite only coming on at half-time and registered a passing accuracy of 85.3 per cent.
