Chelsea got back on track with a comfortable 2-0 win over Championship side Blackburn Rovers, ensuring progression into the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.
The returning Benoit Badiashile opened the scoring after Conor Gallagher and Reece James had threatened earlier on without success.
Badiashile was only playing in his first game under Mauricio Pochettino having missed pre-season and first part of the season through a hamstring injury that ruled him out at the end of last season.
Ahead of the game manager Pochettino called on the home fans to lift the team following the defeat to Brentford at the weekend. He also pointed to the atmosphere at the ground as one of the things he was determined to change as long as he remained the boss.
But despite the lead, it was Blackburn who continued to impress and played from the back with bravery and admiration even though that would eventually cost them.
Cole Palmer intercepting one of their attempts to play out from the back befoe setting up Raheem Sterling who took a touch before curling home what was the second goal to give his side total control of the game and seal progression to the next round.
Sterling, Gallagher and Palmer all went close to adding to the scoreline but the away side would hold on to what in reality should have been maybe a heavier scoreline.
