Chelsea were involved in a marathon penalty shoot-out against Oxford in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday evening.

Each side took 17 penalties before a Chelsea Under-21 side featuring Kurt Zouma and Marco Van Ginkel won 13-12.

Oxford had four penalties to win, but missed them all, while Zouma played the full 90 minutes as he continues his return from injury.
