3 things we learned as Chelsea beat Rennes 3-0

Premier League giants Chelsea recorded a 3-0 win over French Ligue 1 side Rennes in their third Champions League group stage game played on Wednesday, November 4th

Timo Werner converted two penalties in the first half while Tammy Abraham added the third in the second half to seal the win.

Here are three things we learned from the win

2- Tammy Abraham is the first player to score in three consecutive Champions League starts for Chelsea since Willian in 2015, and the first Englishman to do so since Frank Lampard in 2008.

3 – Timo Werner has scored six of his 10 UEFA Champions League goals from the penalty spot; this is the most penalties scored for any player’s first 10 goals in the competition, overtaking Arturo Vidal .
