Two goals from Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic and a third from Didier Drogba gave Chelsea a 3-1 victory over Liverpool and put the Blues on course for the Champions League semi-finals.

Liverpool stunned the Blues when Fernando Torres put them ahead in the sixth minute but Ivanovic headed Chelsea level before the interval with his first goal for the club.

The Serbian right-back repeated the feat in the 62nd minute and Drogba completed the rout five minutes later to leave Liverpool with a massive task in the return leg at Stamford Bridge next Tuesday.
