Chelsea assistant manager Roberto Di Matteo was impressed with the team's performance as they began their FA Cup campaign with a 4-0 defeat of Portsmouth.

The west Londoners never looked in any real danger of slipping up at Stamford Bridge as they netted four times in the second half of the third-round tie.

"I thought it was a very good all-round performance," Di Matteo said. "Portsmouth made it very hard, especially in the first 45 minutes, and it is always difficult to break an opponent down and find a space with so many players."
