Campo

Stamford Bridge.

The players have refused to speak to the media since Marcelino was sacked last week, replaced by Albert Celades, but broke their silence on the pitch at Stamford Bridge. 

Rodrigo scored the only goal of the game in the second half as the Spanish side upset Frank Lampard's Chelsea on their own turf. 

There was a late scare, though, when a VAR review led to a Chelsea penalty. However, after arguing with Jorginho for the right to take it, Ross Barkley fired over.
