Chelsea’s preparations for the Premier League season resumed this afternoon in fine fashion, as the Blues beat QPR 7-1 at Stamford Bridge in a back-closed-door game.
Frank Lampard’s side brushed aside the Championship side in the west London sunshine yesterday.
There was plenty of match action for the entire squad, with N’Golo Kante starting out for the Blues after he recently returned to full contact training.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour both played a big hand in the big victory, which comes just a few days after Chelsea defeated Reading 1-0 at Cobham in a similar fixture.
With goals from Mason Mount, Willian, Loftus-Cheek and Olivier Giroud, Chelsea was in a commanding 4-1 half-time lead.
It was much the same after the break, with another Loftus-Cheek strike adding to the scoreline before Gilmour grabbed two to put the shine on a fantastic display at Chelsea.
