Chelsea defeat Rennes at home
Frank Lampard praised Jorginho’s professionalism after the Italian gave penalty duties to Timo Werner as Chelsea powered to a 3-0 win against 10-man Rennes in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Werner netted twice from the spot before half-time at Stamford Bridge after Rennes defender Dalbert conceded both penalties.

Dalbert was sent off after the second penalty and Chelsea made the most of their numerical advantage to score again through Tammy Abraham early in the second half.
Werner has taken over from Jorginho as Chelsea’s penalty taker after the
midfielder’s recent misses and Lampard was pleased with the way he handled the change.
Chelsea keeper Edouard Mendy, who joined from Rennes in September, was rarely tested against his old club.
Mendy did make one good save to keep out Jeremy Dokumade’s strike in the final moments,
giving the Senegal international six clean-sheets in his last six appearances.
