Chelsea romp to a convincing 5-0 win against Genk in their Champions League group stage match at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have moved a step closer to the Champions League knockout stages with a 5-0 win against Genk at Stamford Bridge.

Raul Meireles opened the scoring for the Blues inside the first 10 minutes when his low drive found the bottom corner.

Fernando Torres doubled the hosts' lead soon after when he slotted home after being put through by Frank Lampard.

The Spaniard got his second of the game on 27 minutes when he headed home Meireles' cross, before Branislav Ivanovic nodded in Florent Malouda's free kick to make it 4-0 at half-time.

It took Chelsea until the 73rd minute to grab their fifth when Salomon Kalou netted the rebound after Torres's shot had been saved.

The Premier League side remain unbeaten and top of Group E.
