Dynamo Kiev vs. Chelsea, Champions League: Second half thread

After struggling through much of the start of the Premier League season, Jose Mourinho decided to shore things up at the back ahead of Tuesday's fixture in Kiev. Through 45 minutes of action, the manager's plan appears to be working, with the Blues looking fairly solid, despite not finding the back of the net.

Between the fullback pairing of Kurt Zouma and Cesar Azpilicueta, and the midfield pivot of Ramires and Nemanja Matic, Chelsea have looked far less likely to concede tonight than they have in most matches recently. Eden Hazard also looks to be responding positively to being dropped, and Cesc Fabregas showed some real signs of usefullness as well.

With any luck, Mourinho's side will convert a chance or two during the second half, and we'll continue to look strong at the back. It's been much, much better from the boys, but taking the full three points would be awfully nice.
