Gary Cahill opened the scoring as Chelsea took a significant step towards the Champions League knockout stages with a 4-0 win at ten-man Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

The England defender fired home from close range after 20 minutes to put his side head, before second-half goals from Willian, Oscar and Kurt Zouma wrapped things up.

The win moves Chelsea, who had England Under-21 midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on the bench, top of Group G with one game left to play.

Back on these shores, goalkeeper Christian Walton made his second start for new club Plymouth Argyle, helping them to a 1-1 draw with Leyton Orient.

The young stopper twice denied John Marquis in a commanding display that kept the visitors at bay for much of the evening.

Coventry’s Jacob Murphy couldn’t repeat his hat-trick heroics from the weekend, as he and fellow England age-group international Adam Armstrong were kept at bay in a 0-0 draw at Bradford.

Meanwhile, Barnsley’s Ben Pearson and Sheffield United teenager Louis Reed were involved in high-scoring affairs in League One.

England Under-20 midfielder Pearson, on loan at Oakwell from Manchester United, couldn’t prevent Peterborough clinching a 3-2 win while Under-19 starlet Reed suffered a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Shrewsbury.
