Chelsea draw 1-all with Krasnodar to finish top of Group E. Midfielder Jorginho scored from the spot as Chelsea finished their successful Champions League Group E campaign with a point against Krasnodar.

Frank Lampard made 10 changes to the side that defeated Leeds at the weekend, giving a first senior start to Tino Anjorin, while fellow 19-year-old midfielder Billy Gilmour made his first start since recovering from injury.

However, four minutes later the English side were level when Jorginho converted a penalty after Tammy Abraham had been fouled in the area by Brazilian midfielder Kaio.

England striker Abraham also went close with a low shot that was deflected wide by the boot of keeper Evgeni Gorodov. The Blues finish Group E as winners with 14 points from their six games.
