Chelsea saw their 24-matches-without-losing-at-home-in-the-Champions-League-group-stage streak (dating back to 2003) rumble over to 25 last night, with a comprehensive and routine battering of Belgian club Genk at Stamford Bridge.

The domestically-banned Fernando Torres kept his eye in with a brace, with a goal-a-piece from Raul Meireles (a bit of a corker, see below), Branislav Ivanovic and Salomon Kalou fleshing out the rout on what proved to be a pretty easy night’s work for the boys in blue.

The three points harvested see Chelsea sitting pretty at the top of Group E, a point clear of Bayer Leverkusen in second (and with a vastly superior goal difference after last night’s flurry) and a full five points ahead of Valencia in third – meaning that another victory in the return leg in Genk in November should all but see them through to the next phase. Huzzah!

    Wow. You really went all out on the alliteration.

    Again, great picture format. Shame it can’t be like that for all the articles.
