The match started off in a very high tempo. Barnsley looked very sharp in passing and were the better team. Quite a lot of chances but Caballero up to the Woodrow cane close with a far out shot. But he was denied by a flying Caballero.
However the first goal came from a mistake which saw Tammy score. The second beautifully created by Chelsea. A lovely dummy from Abraham and Havertz calmly slotted it in. First Chelsea goal for Kai Havertz .
Chelsea took full control of the 2nd half. Another mistake from Barnsley saw Havertz win the ball back. Ross Barkley shot with his left foot and 3-0 Chelsea. However the woes continuing for Barnsley. Kovacic winning the ball and passing to Tammy. He in turn which a lovely flick to Havertz who secures his 2nd of the night.
Havertz rounded off a perfect night by squaring up the Barnsley goalkeeper. Went round him and tapped in. What a goal. Late addition from Olivier Giroud meant the match ends 6-0. Chelsea through to the 4th round of the Carabao Cup.
