Chelsea vs Maribor 0-0 live commentary:
That’s FULL TIME at Stamford Bridge and it’s been a wonderful night for Chelsea, who thrash Maribor 6-0 thanks to two goals from Hazard and one apiece for Remy, Drogba and Terry, plus a Viler own goal. A devastating display and a real message to Europe from the Premier League leaders.
90′Goal Eden Hazard
HAZARD BAGS ANOTHER!! 6-0!! Another lovely move from Chelsea yields another goal. Ake is the creator this time as he floats a superb pass over the top for Hazard, who brings it down with a stunning piece of control before turning Mejac twice and firing across goal into the far corner. Another great goal.
77′Penalty Goal Eden Hazard
HAZARD SCORES IT!! CHELSEA ARE 5-0 UP!! The Belgian finally gets his goal as he is given the responsibility, and sends the goalkeeper the wrong way with a low finish to the left.
54′Own Goal Mitja Viler
IT’S AN OWN GOAL!! 4-0!! Luis carves Maribor open with a darting run in from the left before drilling it across the box. Hazard is there at the far post but can’t tap it in so takes a touch before looking to find Drogba with a pass into the six-yard box. The ball hits the back of Viler’s leg and goes straight into the back of the net. Very unlucky, but Chelsea have four.
31′Goal John Terry
TERRY MAKES IT THREE!! A WONDERFUL MOVE!! Drogba’s clearance from that corner sets Hazard away, and the Belgian moves towards the box before slotting Fabregas through. The Spaniard plays it across the area and Terry – of all people – is there to tap it in from close range. A fantastic counter!
23′Penalty Goal Didier Drogba
DROGBA SCORES IT!! CHELSEA ARE TWO UP!! There’s a huge cheer as the Blues legend steps up to the spot, and then he comfortably sends Handanovic with a clinical low effort into the left-hand corner. 2-0, and Chelsea are cruising.
13′Goal Loïc Remy
REMY OPENS THE SCORING!! Moments after threatening the goal, he puts Chelsea in front as Terry fires a wonderful ball beyond the defence and Remy is on to it as the flag stays down. The striker takes a touch, cuts on to his left, and fires it into the far corner with his left foot.
