Chelsea interim boss Roberto di Matteo hailed a "fantastic performance" by his side as a 4-2 win at Aston Villa bolstered their Champions League hopes.

Fernando Torres scored his first Barclays Premier League goal for six months to put the icing on a sixth win in eight games under Di Matteo.

Di Matteo said: "I thought we were strong, dominated and controlled the game apart from the five minutes when Villa scored two goals."
