Chelsea hit six in opening pre-season friendly

All 10 outfield players were altered at the start of the second period, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Armando Broja, Conor Gallagher and Hakim Ziyech among those entering the fray, and it was the Moroccan who enjoyed himself the most after the break.

The 28-year-old netted an impressive hat-trick, the first of which was fired in off the underside of the crossbar following neat play down the left from Baba Rahman. 

Broja then teed him up for a second before he pounced on a loose pass in the box to complete the scoring late on. Prior to that, Broja had also scored as the Blues stepped up the intensity in the second period.
