Players to watch
Former Chelsea player Fikayo Tomori scored the decisive goal against Juventus at the weekend, but he is better known for his Champions League yellow cards this season, having made two out of three games so far.
Chelsea’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was on holiday at the weekend, no longer likes scorecards, and both of his shots this season were second in the game. A footballer can score here.
