Nigerian winger, Victor Moses was missing in the matchday squad of Chelsea, who saw off Burnley 4-0 in a Premier League clash on Sunday.
The Blues, who are yet to lose a league game this season, got ahead in the first half when Alvaro Morata poked a goal in.
Ross Barkley doubled their lead in the 57th minute, Willian made it 3-0 with another superb goal on 62 minutes, before Ruben Loftus-Cheek completed the rout.
In a concurrent Premier League encounter, Arsenal drew 2-2 at Crystal Palace, with Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi in action all through.
The Gunners, who were seeking a 12th straight win, trailed into the second half after a first-half extra time penalty put Crystal Palace ahead.
Granit Xhaka scored an equaliser in the 52nd minute, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added a second for the visitors.
But another penalty for Palace converted again by Milivojevic cut short Arsenal’s hopes of clinching a 12th straight win in all competitions.
