Trevoh Chalobah scored his first Champions League goal as Chelsea thrashed Juventus 4-0 to reach the last 16 of the competition.

In order to qualify for the knockout stages, Chelsea needed only one point from their last Group H match against Juve, which they won 4-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Reece James and Callum Hudson-goals Odoi’s in the second half put the Premier League leaders in possession, and Chalobah controversially opened the scoring after Antonio Rudiger appeared to have handled in the penalty area.

Ten games without a defeat for Thomas Tuchel’s team and Timo Werner’s last-gasp goal completed a ruthless victory, even though Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kante had to be substituted due to injuries.

Wojciech Szczesny had to make a fine stop from James’ free-kick from a tight angle early on in the game for Chelsea.

It was a controversial goal from 25 yards out by Chalobah after it appeared the ball had struck Rudiger’s arm when Hakim Ziyech whipped in a corner. He scored with his right foot on the half-volley.

Alvaro Morata, a former Chelsea forward, was denied a late equalizer by Thiago Silva, who raced back with amazing awareness to deny the attacker with a desperate last-ditch clearance.

When Kante was replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek just eight minutes before the break, Chelsea maintained their dominance and scored two goals in three minutes to take full control of the match.

With the ball on his chest, James controlled the ball before firing a rasping right-footed drive beyond Szczesny after Leonardo Bonucci headed Chilwell’s cross into his path.

Hudson-Odoi then tapped in a close-range goal with his left foot after Loftus-Cheek set him up with some impressive agility.

Despite Szczesny’s excellent reflex save, James was again involved as Werner put the frosting on the cake as Juve’s spotless Champions League record this season was ended by a late goal from the fit-again substitute.
