Chelsea pair Baker, Solanke shine in Vitesse triumph

Chelsea's contingent continued to impress for Vitesse Arnhem in the Dutch Eredivisie on the weekend.


Lewis Baker and Dom Solanke both provided assists in the 3-0 home win over De Graafschap while Nathan started and Izzy Brown and Danilo Pantic came off the bench.

Baker set up Guram Kashia's sixth-minute opener while Solanke assisted on Valeri Qazaishvili's goal in the 21st minute as Vitesse got out to a quick two-goal lead at the GelreDome.

Pantic replaced Qazaishvili just before the hour-mark prior to Nathan coming off for Brown in the 77th minute, not long after Milot Rashica made it 3-0.

The victory has Vitesse sitting seventh in the Dutch top flight with 10 points from six matches, ahead of Wednesday night's KNVB Beker (Dutch Cup) clash with Heracles, which Solanke was quickly turning his attention to.
