Former Chelsea star, Joe Cole has insisted that Juventus players will be happy that Chelsea only scored them four goals following both sides’ Champions League tie on Tuesday night.
Cole also hailed five Chelsea academy graduates, Trevor Chalobah, Mason Mount, Loftus-Cheeks, Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi, following their impressive performances against Juventus.
Chelsea defeated Juventus at Stamford Bridge thanks to four goals from Trevor Chalobah, Reece James, and Callum Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner.
“Champagne football, it’s a beautiful performance,” Cole said on BT Sport.
“Look at the smiles, unbelievable. Look at the goal-scorers and you add your Loftus-Cheeks and Mason Mounts to that, the academy graduates. The last goal summed it up.
“The confidence of the pass with the outside of the boot from Reece James. Even Timo Werner is getting in on the act.”
“Juventus will get on the plane and be happy that it was only four,” Cole added.
“That was a step up from what I saw on Saturday against Leicester. You remember that Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner weren’t starting. That is £150m worth of talent and they still score four past Juventus.
“You start to run out of words. Top of the Premier League, top of their Champions League group, champions of Europe and with a team full of academy graduates.”
