Nigerian-born midfielder Tino Anjorin was in action as Chelsea earned a point against FC Krasnodar on Tuesday’s Champions League group match.
Midfielder Jorginho scored a penalty as the Blues finished their successful Champions League Group E campaign.
Since Chelsea have already qualified for the last 16, Frank Lampard utilized youngsters like Anjorin who is viewed as an extremely exciting talent at Stamford Bridge thanks to his dynamic presence in the middle of the pitch.
Also featuring in the match was fellow 19-year-old midfielder Billy Gilmour who made his first start since recovering from injury.
The ‘second string’ Blues dominated the early possession, but the Russian side looked dangerous on the break and took the lead in the 24th minute through Remy Cabella. The former Newcastle player started and finished the move with a low shot that sneaked in past the reach of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
However, four minutes later the English side were level when Jorginho converted a penalty after Tammy Abraham had been fouled in the area by Brazilian midfielder Kaio.
England striker Abraham also went close with a low shot that was deflected wide by the boot of keeper Evgeni Gorodov.
In Group H, Manchester United was knocked out of the tournament after 3-2 defeat by RB Leipzig.
Needing just a draw to progress to the last 16, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side conceded twice inside 13 minutes to leave their hopes in tatters before RB Leipzig added what ultimately turned out to be the killer third with 20 minutes left.
United were weak in the first half but made their customary comeback in the second half with Bruno Fernandes penalty and Harry Maguire’s header.
But the Red Devils couldn’t beat substitute Justin Kluivert’s 69th minute goal and were dumped out of the competition.
United now drop to the Europa League while RB Leipzig advance to the Champions League last 16 having reached the last four in 2019-20.
Meanwhile, recall that FrujuSports had previously reported that Paris Saint-Germain vs Istanbul Basaksehir has been abandoned after match official Sebastian Coltescu was accused of using racist terms on one of the French giants assistant coach Pierre Webo.
