Chelsea cruise past Morecambe

1 min read

Timo Werner netted for the first time in 13 games and Kai Havertz rounded off the scoring as Chelsea eased into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a comfortable victory over League Two side Morecambe.

Under pressure following a poor run, Frank Lampard named a strong Chelsea team, with Werner, Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Mason Mount included from the start. And it was Mount who broke the deadlock in the 18th-minute with a low shot from 25 yards beating the unsighted Mark Halstead.

But there was an earlier scare for the Blues, as Kepa Arrizabalaga, restored to the team to make his 100th appearance for the club, was almost caught out from Adam Phillips’ cross but recovered well to dive on the ball before it crossed the line.

Chelsea grabbed a second just before half-time to reflect their dominance as Werner was left with a simple tap-in to end his goal drought when Havertz cushioned a header from Ziyech’s cross into his compatriot’s path.

Ziyech added another assist four minutes after the restart, chipping a lovely ball over the top for Callum Hudson-Odoi, who finished coolly past the Morecambe goalkeeper.

Havertz, making his first start in five games, wrapped up the scoring late on with a headed finish from Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross, as Chelsea earned a morale-boosting victory.
