When I wasn't struggling with the lovely Fox Soccer 2 Go mobile app, I've been able to witness a decent Chelsea performance so far.

The pace has been mellow and as Ramires on the wing attests, Chelsea look happy to play for a low-scoring result here.

The good guys did score from one of their rare passages of enterprising play, Lampard winning and taking the corner, which landed on Victor Moses's head and bounced into the back of the net. Moses has now scored in three straight Europa League matches.

Eden Hazard could've doubled the advantage, but he shanked wide when it looked easier to score just before half-time. Meanwhile Fernando Torres has rediscovered his old form.
