In the 49th minute of tonight’s Champions League encounter against Rennes, the Blues had themselves a 3-0 lead after a clinical combination from two of their academy graduates.
The ball was laid off to an overlapping Reece James, with the ace putting the ball on a plate for Tammy Abraham with a pinpoint first-time cross.
Abraham was in between two Rennes players and well placed to tap the ball into the back of the net.
The definition of putting it on a plate ?
Reece James with the perfect assist for Tammy Abraham! ?

Frank Lampard’s side have looked pretty comfortable tonight, they’ve had the benefit of two massive penalty calls – one of which leading to a harsh sending off – but they’ve been the better side.
