Ike Ugbo has agreed on a £4m ($6m) move to Genk that will soon be announced after a medical, while Tiemoue Bakayoko has held talks with Ligue 1 clubs Lyon and Rennes over a permanent move away.
Andy Cole, who became the first Premier League player to score five in a game, partnered Mark Hughes in attack. Ryan Giggs, then 21, was at his baggy-shirted best on the left wing with the equally incisive Andrei Kanchelskis on the right.
With Chelsea hanging on to a slender lead against 10-man Norwich in 2011, up went the board. New boss Andre Villas-Boas made one final throw of the dice as he opted to switch out the experienced Fernandes Torres for an 18-year-old forward who had just signed from Anderlecht.
He is already off the mark since his £98m move – netting against rivals Arsenal on his second debut – and will now have his sights on scoring on his second home debut as he prepares to step out at Stamford Bridge versus Aston Villa on Saturday.
The pair linked up yet again four minutes later and it was engineered thanks to some mesmerising vision from their talisman. He began in his own half before skipping forwards, dancing around a few Madrid players near the centre-circle and pinging a ball across the ground that Villa was able to run on to from the left. He showed great awareness to stab it into the corner beyond Casillas.
