Chelsea put the disappointment of their opening-game defeat to FC Basel completely behind them as they beat Group E leaders Schalke 04 3-0 in Germany. The Blues were efficient from the start, and aside from a spell of pressure at the end of the first half, they dominated much of the match.

Mourinho made a few changes to his starting XI, with David Luiz dropped after his howler against Cardiff. Fernando Torres started ahead of Samuel Eto'o, which paid off handsomely as the striker bagged a brace, before Eden Hazard got Chelsea's third in the dying minutes of the game.

An impressive performance and the right result is exactly what the Blues needed as they head into an intense run of fixtures. Here are six things we learned from Chelsea's 3-0 away win.
