Chelsea missed one penalty, scored another and saw Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi score their first Champions League goals in a 4-0 win over Krasnodar which saw the Blues reach new heights impressive late in the game

Although Frank Lampard’s side were in charge long before Hudson-Odoi’s low shot was knocked back into the net by Matvey Safonov Chelsea’s opening came after Jorginho missed a penalty at the 14th minute, but the Blues would have another scoring chance in the second half, with Timo Werner making no mistakes before Ziyech and Christian Pulisic added some brilliance to the scoring late

The goals of the latter two have taken Chelsea to 13 different goalscorers so far this season and there is certainly more to come from this costly attack, although Krasnodar, riddled with injuries and absentees, may think that the score does not reflect a match in which they offered real difficulties to their visitors

« Faster, faster » was Frank Lampard’s cry midway through the first half as Chelsea struggled to find their way through a disciplined defense from Krasnodar The cause of his frustration was understandable because when his first four clicked, there was something irresistible about their attack

Kai Havertz’s drifts to the left were a particular problem for the Krasnodar defense and it took a crucial clearance header for Yevgeni Chernov to deprive Hakim Ziyech of a great chance as the Russian side sought to retain parity

Even though Hudson-Odoi’s opener was as much down to a poor goalkeeper from promising youngster Safonov as it was to the quality of the strike, it came after a careful interaction with Havertz and the young Englishman

Building an understanding between his attackers will take time, especially when Lampard has figures like Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Olivier Giroud to fit in as well, but before they even settle into the groove, there’s many individual qualities to overcome their opponents

Kurt Zouma insisted ahead of the game that Chelsea don’t need Thiago Silva to keep a clean sheet

He was right, but there should be cause for concern how nervous Chelsea held onto their one-goal lead before receiving a severe penalty for Alyaksandr Martynovich Certainly, with their backs to the walls, a Chelsea without Silva seems likely to lose chances

Aside from their defensive work without the 36-year-old, left behind to preserve his match-level fitness, Chelsea struggled to advance the ball deep with Krasnodar too willing to allow Zouma and Antonio Rudiger to take possession of the ball

They certainly missed an organizing presence on set pieces, especially the one where each defender seemed to throw themselves into a corner so no one managed to get past it, Yury Gazinski volleying against the crossbar Still, if it’s fair to wonder how Chelsea’s four full-backs coped without Silva, it should be noted that Edouard Mendy was as good as ever, quickly rising after Krasnodar was denied by the woodwork of hit the ball

Jorginho missed his second penalty of the season, just over a month after Alisson turned him down at Stamford Bridge. His fellow ‘hop’ defender Bruno Fernandes also saw his streak scorching spot to end this season, sparking new debate on the correct way to score from 12 yards

Lampard is not short of alternatives, a quick list could include Timo Werner, Havertz, Ziyech or Mason Mount The former did not make the same mistake as Jorginho with a thunderous rocket at the top right of Safonov Is it time to hand the kicking tasks over to another player?

In short, no The Italian may have missed his last two but before that he had scored 14 in a row His overall record is 23 points, 3 misses The expected goal measurements all agree that there is 70% chance of a penalty being scored Jorginho has a record 88% on the spot

Hakim Ziyech: A first start for the Moroccan, who instead became the forgotten figure of a spending madness that went on to include Havertz, Werner and more He might not be a side attraction any longer if he builds on an encouraging first start that showed a ruthless eye for shooting opportunities, his payoff finally coming when he struck in the finals RATING: 7

Edouard Mendy: Four games gone and only one goal conceded The former Rennes goalkeeper had a slightly busier evening than he would have liked but did everything we could ask of him EVALUATION: 8

Matvei Safonov: A highly rated prospect in Russia, the goalkeeper will be frustrated that his good times, especially a clever save from Ziyech and an impudent drag back, were largely nullified by the mistake that allowed for Hudson-Odoi to win This is the harsh reality of Champions League football RATING: 4

After Chelsea’s trip to Burnley on Sunday, Mendy will welcome his former Rennes team-mates to Stamford Bridge as Chelsea look to extend their unbeaten group E Krasnodar has away games against Akhmat Gronzy and Sevilla on their schedule
