Chelsea 0 Lyon 0 (5-4 on Pens) : Victor Moses, Abraham Make First Pre-Season StartPublished: August 07, 2018
Chelsea concluded their preparations for the start of a new season with a goalless draw versus French opponents, Olympique Lynonnais before running out 5-4 winners in the resultant shoot-out on Tuesday evening.
Super Eagles dazzler Victor Moses and Tammy Abraham were both named in the Blues starting XI at Stamford Bridge.
While both players were earning their first pre-season starts under Maurizio Sarri, Abraham has featured in all games the Italian tactician has overseen since his taking to the helm.
The striker thought he had scored in the 56th minute when he rose highest to meet Davide Zappacosta's far-post cross, but watched it sail agonizingly wide off target.
Moses made way for Lucas Piazon after 68 minutes of action while at the same time, Abraham was replaced by Olivier Giroud.
After the scoreline remained deadlocked at the blast of full-time whistle, Eden Hazard stepped up to decide the ensuing penalty shootout which his side edged 5-4 with the vital last kick after Pape Diop had missed for the visitors.
