Chelsea thrash Fulham 8-2 in pre-season friendly
Chelsea began their pre-season with an emphatic 8-2 victory over Fulham on Saturday evening.
Willian struck a first-half hat-trick, while Michy Batshuayi and Loic Remy both scored twice, as the Premier League champions outclassed the Championship outfit.
Chelsea were 5-1 up before the break, as Antonio Conte named a strong team, with £40million new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko watching on at the club’s Cobham training ground.
Although Fulham improved in the second half, the Blues went on to score three more goals.
Chelsea are next in action against Arsenal in Beijing on Saturday in a re-run of last season’s FA Cup final, which the Gunners won 2-1.
