Chelsea win PL Summer Series as Nkunku nets again in win over Fulham

Chelsea were crowned winners of the inaugural Premier League Summer Series with a 2-0 victory over Fulham as Christopher Nkunku scored again.

Mauricio Pochenttino clinched his first trophy with the Blues following a 4-3 win over Brighton and a 1-1 draw with Newcastle during their pre-season tour of the USA

Thiago Silva opened the scoring in the 20th minute with a towering header from Ben Chilwell's in-swinging corner.

Nkunku, a £52m addition from RB Leipzig, then netted his third goal of the summer with a tap-in after Carney Chukwuemeka's shot was parried into his path.

The result meant Chelsea finished top of the six-team tournament with seven points, followed by Aston Villa with five points ahead of Newcastle on goal difference. Brentford finished bottom after losing two matches and drawing one.
