It was a routine 6-0 win that saw Chelsea notch another three points in Group G this evening, as minnows Maribor offered very little in the way of an attacking threat.

The only concern for Jose Mourinho will be the injury suffered by Loic Remy, but the fact that Didier Drogba managed to grab himself a goal from the penalty spot will have slightly cushioned the blow.

Just how did the Chelsea players get on in a match wherein they were every bit as dominant as supporters had hoped they would be? Well, we'll tell you.

Petr Cech: In place of Thibaut Courtois Cech was handed the No.1 jersey for this evening's game. In truth he had little to do, though he will have been boosted by the clean-sheet. 6/10

Branislav Ivanovic: Nothing spectacular was needed and so nothing spectacular was given. An assured, mature performance all the same. Won a penalty. 6/10

Filipe Luis: A very smart piece of play led to Chelsea's fourth as Luis produced an all round tidy performance. Won't have done his chances of making the starting XI in the league any harm. 7/10

John Terry: Captain fantastic rounded off a classy team move to make in 3-0. Redoubtable in defence but never truly tested. 7/10

Kurt Zouma: A run-of-the-mill outing for the young centre-back but one that will have given him confidence all the same. Will hope for more opponents as limited as Maribor. 6/10

Cesc Fabregas: 
Fabregas can play ball with the best of them; Maribor aren't the best of them. The Spaniard was on point as expected. Replaced by Nathan Ake in the second half. 6/10

Nemanja Matic: The monumental figure of Matic once again proved how the money Mourinho spent on him was worth every penny. A typically robust showcase. 7/10

Oscar: The Brazilian was desperate to get his name on the scoresheet, and he came close once or twice. Was subbed for Solanke in the second-half. 6/10

Eden Hazard: Chelsea's main man was certainly at the races today. Got on the scoresheet and forced the OG for the Blues' fourth. Gave Maribor's defence a torrid outing and his second was a joy to behold. 9/10

Willian: Was lively and included in virtually everything going forward. Though Willian didn't bag himself a goal he did the bar, and oozed confidence. 8/10

Loic Remy: 
Opened the scoring for Chelsea before coming off with an injury. It would be unfair to rate him.

Didier Drogba: Replaced Remy after the injury and was given the chance to boss a defence who struggled to contain him. Will have been happy to get his goal, even if it was from the spot. 7/10
