Chelsea took the lead in the 19th minute through Timo Werner, who scored his first goal for the Blues. It was a moment debutant Reguilon would want to remember after he lost the ball, allowing the away side to attack down the right as Hudson-Odoi fed Azpilicueta. 

Reguilon got back to try and cover, but Azpilicueta sold him a dummy and turned back before picking out Werner just inside the box, who steadied himself before firing a powerful effort into the bottom corner. 

Spurs drew level in the 83rd minute through Eric Lamela. Reguilon worked the ball with one touch, bringing down a long pass before shifting it past Werner. He teased a cross up to Lamela at the back stick his third, the forward took a touch before firing it past Mendy.
