Lee Mason’s warning to Pedro – There was one major talking point from when Spurs beat Manchester United at Wembley on January 31 and that came as Christian Eriksen netted within 11 seconds of the match.
In the replay it showed that Harry Kane was inside United’s half at kick-off, meaning that the goal shouldn’t have stood with the striker integral in the goal.
Well the message must have filtered through the referees as just before Olivier Giroud was about to get the game under way, referee Lee Mason caught Pedro slightly encroaching and made sure he took a couple of steps back.
In the end Chelsea just passed the ball sideways around the back, so the record to the fastest Premier League goal was never in danger.
He might have got off to a flying start in the Bundesliga, but Michy Batshuayi is certainly keeping a close eye on his parent club back in the Premier League.
The 24-year-old has already netted three goals in two games for Borussia Dortmund and seems to be enjoying his time in Germany, but he is sure to support Chelsea when he gets the chance.
He took to social media straight away after the match to congratulate his Chelsea teammates, with the striker obviously a popular figure in the dressing room.
Morata is Bane?!
It was a bit of shock to see Alvaro Morata on the bench for Chelsea last night after Antonio Conte had stated on Friday that the Spaniard would be out of the match with his back injury.
However, the 25-year-old recovered in time to take his place with the rest of the squad and he managed to get a 30 minute run out at the end, looking sharp when he came on.
But it was his strange attire on the bench that seemed to catch the eye as he wore a noticeable item on his face.
With the mask to protect his face from the cold, the striker looked the spitting image of Tom Hardy as Bane in the Dark Knight Rises film, something that was spotted by many on social media.
It was a pretty cold evening at the Bridge, but we thought Batshuayi’s water bottle at West Ham was a little daft!
