Andre Villas-Boas was pleased to see his Chelsea side execute their team objectives against Genk in a game which saw Fernando Torres net twice for the Blues.

Chelsea were far superior to their Belgian opponents and cruised to a 5-0 win in the Champions League Group E clash at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues took a four-goal lead into half-time, with Torres scoring a brace in-between goals from Raul Meireles and Branislav Ivanovic.

Salomon Kalou completed the rout in the second period to leave Chelsea one point above Bayer Leverkusen after three rounds of fixtures.

And Villas-Boas was enthused by a complete performance from his team as a whole, although the Blues boss was also pleased to see Torres return to form.


"I think it was a very, very good display by the team, very focused as we spoke before and this is decisive when you play a game like this," the 34-year-old told Sky Sports.

"This isn't about individual objectives but team objectives and the most important thing was to win.

"Every player wants to play when he is out for a long period, it was important for him [Torres] to play for the Spain national team so he has been keeping his form well and he eventually returned to the team today and got into goal scoring positions."
