Champions League Group E—Veltins Arena, Germany.

SCHALKE 0-3 CHELSEA

Goals: Torres (5', 68'), Hazard ('87) 

Chelsea raced to the top of Group E on Tuesday with an emphatic 3-0 win over Schalke.

A brace from Fernando Torres and a late goal from Eden Hazard capped a perfect night for Jose Mourinho's side at the Veltins Arena.

After taking the lead after only five minutes, the Blues withstood some pressure in the first-half before turning the screw after the break.

A much-improved performance in the second-half saw space open up for the visitors, and in the end the victory was a convincing one.
