Chelsea went top of group E after they demolished newcomers FC Nordsjaelland 4-0 at the Parken Stadium, courtesy of goals from Juan Mata, David Luiz and Ramires.

The champions went ahead when Fernando Torres and Frank Lampard combined beautifully around the box to slide in Juan Mata who slotted home for the Blues.

FC Nordsjaelland rattled the visitors during the course of the match and could have levelled through Joshua John who sent a shot just wide and also struck the post.

However, Chelsea scored three times in ten minutes to seal the points. A lovely dipping David Luiz free-kick went in off the post and then more clever passing put Juan Mata in for his second goal of the match.

Oscar set up Ramires for a tap-in in the last minute to put Chelsea in a good position at the top of group E.

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, who was back in the Chelsea team for the win over FC Nordsjaelland, was delighted with the result.

“It was a great result,” Lampard said. “We had to bide our time. At 1-0 they created a few half chances and hit the post. But once we got the second goal that was it and we dominated.”
