Chelsea's remain in control of their fate in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie, heading into the second half tied at 1-1 with French Champions Lille.

The Blues hold a 3-1 advantage on aggregate, following their 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge, but a penalty from Burak Yilmaz in the first half has threatened to put the cat among the pigeons in a half in which Thomas Tuchel's side flattered to deceive.

However, Christian Pulisic restored the two goal advantage for the Blues with a accurate finish following a lovely pass from Jorginho.

Chalobah slammed by fans

Despite this, as can be seen below, one man stood out to fans after coming on following an injury. This came in the form of Trevoh Chalobah, whose first involvement in the piece was to give away a free kick and pick up a yellow card for a foul that led to the eventual penalty.

It's safe to say, Chelsea fans were less than impressed.
