​Chelsea defeat Lyon on penalties

Chelsea finished off their final preseason game in uneventful fashion, managing a 0-0 draw in normal time before winning on penalties.

The Blues faced off against Lyon in the last friendly before the new season at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues had to rotate the squad, as they were coming off the Community Shield game with Manchester City on Sunday.

The likes of Gary Cahill, N'Golo Kante, Olivier Giroud and Eden Hazard all played.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek also got in the starting lineup.

Chelsea will now be focusing on the first game of the season on Saturday against Huddersfield, with the small matter of transfer deadline day before that!
