Chelsea come from behind to win with youngsters Broja and Ugbo on target

EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS Chelsea came from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 in a pre-season friendly.

Manager Thomas Tuchel put out a strong side at Dean Court but it were youngsters Armando Broja and Ike Ugbo who scored the goals.

Tammy Abraham, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Marcos Alonso, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Kepa Arrizabalaga all started the match.

There was also rare appearances for Danny Drinkwater, Lewis Baker, Malang Sarr and Dujon Sterling.

Bournemouth took the lead just after the hour mark when new signing Emiliano Marcondes gave the home fans something to cheer.

The Blues equalised in the 72nd minute when Broja controlled a cross from substitute Baba Rahman before finding the back of the net.

And Chelsea were in the lead four minutes later, Ugbo heading in at the near post, before holding on for the win.
