For former Arsenal forward Gnabry they were the fifth and sixth goals in London in the Champions League this season after he scored four in Bayern’s 7-2 demolition of Tottenham in the group stages.The first against Chelsea in the 51st minute involved a one-two between Gnabry and Lewandowski, who cut back from the edge of the area when Chelsea’s retreating defence expected him to shoot, leaving Gnabry with an easy finish from less than 10 metres.
Chelsea, were trying to recuperate when Lewandowski and Gnabry exchanged passes halfway down the pitch before Gnabry raced away to score.
Lewandowski, clearly also enjoying himself, got among the scorers in the 76th minute after a stirring run from Canadian full back Alphonso Davies.
Thomas Mueller, one of three players who figured in Chelsea’s 2012 Champions League final victory over Bayern in Munich, went closest in the 35th minute when he thumped the bar with a header from another Lewandowski cross.
Tuesday’s win proved a measure of revenge for that unlikely Chelsea victory over Bayern Munich Lampard said about the next leg“We have to go and play with pride and not consider the scoreline,” he said. “We have to show character.”
