The game promised to be fun, and it turned out to be so, the teams constantly exchanged sharp moments, the Blues even managed to score, but Jackson was offside. Just before the break, the ball again bounced unsuccessfully from Cucurella to Rogers, who scored a goal into the bottom corner.

With the start of the second half, the guests again rushed to attack, almost all Chelsea players had their chances in one way or another, but the ball stubbornly did not go into the goal.

Only in the 81st minute did Conor Gallagher hit the ball from the penalty area with a strong shot into the top far corner and equalize the score. At the end of the match, Watkins could have snatched victory, but shot high from the 11-meter mark, then Palmer also missed the right chance, but in the end, in the last added minutes, Axel Disasi managed to score the decisive goal. And Chelsea would have won if the VAR referees had not seen a foul in the episode and canceled the goal.
