Chelsea 5-1 Chesterfield: Romelu Lukaku scores against Chesterfield United to put the Blues' controversy behind him.

Before being pulled at halftime, Lukaku knocked in debutant Lewis Hall's low cross and missed three gilt-edged chances.

Product of the Academy Hall, 17, made his senior debut with a well-deserved assist for Lukaku, with Timo Werner, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Andreas Christensen, and Hakim Ziyech all scoring.

Despite a slew of injuries and Covid-19 absences, Chelsea was permitted to make seven changes due to the 91 league spots between the two sides.

From the moment Lukaku whipped a first-time effort from a corner over the bar, Chelsea's dominance was rubber-stamped.

Werner tapped the Blues into a fifth-minute lead, teenager Hall the catalyst for a fast break where Ziyech's half-saved shot fell straight to Chelsea's German forward with an open goal ahead.

Werner could have doubled his tally had he been able to react quick enough to another Ziyech shot parried that flashed across goal.
