Rating the Chelsea Players in Win over Rubin Kazan

Who did and who didn't for Chelsea tonight?

A brace from Fernando Torres helped Chelsea on their way to a 3-1 Europa League quarterfinal first-leg win over Rubin Kazan.

The Blues were cruising after goals in the opening half-hour from Torres and Victor Moses put them two clear, but after John Terry was adjudged to have handled in the box, Bibras Natcho reduced the arrears from the spot.

With games coming thick and fast in three competitions, Rafa Benitez's side needed a healthy lead to take into the return tie in Russia, and Torres duly restored their advantage when he headed home a Juan Mata cross on 70 minutes.

The hosts could and should have extended the score line but were kept at bay, whilst Kazan also posed plenty of problems down the other end.

I'll run the rule over the runners and riders of a largely impressive display, and make sure you let me know your opinions on how you saw it by posting your comments down below.
