FC Schalke 04 0-3 Chelsea – Champions League – 22nd October 2013
Fernando Torres, on his 100th Chelsea start, bagged a brace for Chelsea in a highly impressive performance away at Schalke.
The Spaniard, looking far more like his old self in recent weeks, netted a goal in each half with the woodwork denying him a hat-trick. Eden Hazard scored Chelsea’ third late on as the Blues bossed the game.
The home side did improve towards the end of the first-half, but they failed to find that all-important cutting-edge.
Chelsea now top Group E on goal difference ahead of Schalke on goal difference.
