Chelsea 6-0 Barnsley: Kai Havertz hits hat-trick as Blues romp into round four of Carabao Cup

Tammy Abraham opened the scoring for a much-changed Chelsea side, and Havertz doubled their lead before the break. Ross Barkley then notched a third early in the second half at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, before Havertz added two more.

It was a night of good news for Chelsea's new signings and Frank Lampard as Thiago Silva made his debut for the club, and Ben Chilwell also enjoyed his first appearance, stepping off the bench to assist a late sixth for fellow substitute Olivier Giroud.

Havertz stars as Chelsea thrash Barnsley

Barnsley had a somewhat shaky start but grew in confidence and really took the game to Chelsea, testing their defence once or twice and forcing Silva and Fikayo Tomori into some errors early on.

But a mistake at the back cost Barnsley the opener on 19 minutes as a loose pass while trying to play out handed the ball to Abraham, and he took a touch before firing past Brad Collins.
