Chelsea FC rediscovered their power and panache to put their UEFA Champions League matchday one disappointment firmly in the past. Ramires scored twice as José Mourinho's team easily cut apart an FC Steaua Bucureşti side who have conceded seven goals in two Group E fixtures.

Ramires struck either side of an own goal from Daniel Georgievski but had to defer to the outstanding André Schürrle and Juan Mata for man-of-the match honours. Frank Lampard concluded the scoring with a low drive in off the upright.

Match in 5

  • Ramires scores in each half as Chelsea secure first win
  • Georgievski puts into own net before Lampard hits fourth
  • Steaua without a competition win since beating Dynamo in 2006
  • Steaua now conceded 350 goals in UEFA competition
  • Chelsea face leaders Schalke next, Steaua take on Basel

Reaction

Unfortunately we were too naive. Their first two goals were gifts and it's hard at this level if you don't apply on the pitch what you talk about before the match.

We kept control of the game and result and we played good football with intelligence and maturity away from home.
