It took a while to find a spark, but after the somewhat sluggish and nervy opening, it unsurprisingly came from Juan Mata. Swindon forgot to triple-mark him for a second or two, during which time he provided a telling pass to Torres (who missed) and then took a shot himself, forcing the save and allowing Fernando Torres to tuck home the rebound.
Ramires, the King of Chipped Goals, added a lovely chipped goal a few minutes later after some good work from Fernando who had dropped deep.
On the negative side of the ledger, Marco van Ginkel was forced off early with a nasty-looking knee injury. Hopefully it's not too bad, but the whole sequence of events was scarily similar to Oriol Romeu's injury. Fingers crossed.
So, two goals to the good, with the promise a few more. Wouldn't that be nice? I DEMAND FLOODGATES. And then an appearance from Lewis Baker.
Make it so.
