Antonio Conte’s men produced an impressive display in front of their home fans as they booked their place in the fourth round and set up a clash with Everton next month.

Rudiger is getting used to life at Chelsea following his transfer to Stamford Bridge from Roma in the summer.
And the 24-year-old defender seemed like he was in a good mood as he posed for a snap in the Stamford Bridge dressing room after Wednesday’s game with three of his Brazilian team-mates.
Rudiger posted the picture above on his Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Next round ✅ 5-1 victory at Stamford Bridge #Hustle #CFC #EFLCup @chelseafc”
