Five pics that told the story of Chelsea's Galatasaray win

Petr Cech At Stamford Bridge

Chelsea cruised to a routine 2-0 win against Galatasaray Tuesday night - but there was nothing mundane about some of the action shots from the game.

We start with the ultimate Chelsea celebration picture, with Willian, Branislav Ivanovic, Samuel Eto'o and Frank Lampard all rushing towards John Terry - who had beaten everyone to congratulate Gary Cahill for scoring Chelsea's second goal. Not the first time, of course, the centre-back has been snapped celebrating...

Before that, though, Chelsea obviously had to have scored a first - and this picture of a smiling Samuel Eto'o pretty much sums up how they got it.

Eden Hazard had got the Blues off to a great start, playing in Oscar just moments after kick-off, with the Brazilian duly teeing up Eto'o. A natural goalscorer, the 33-year-old controlled the ball well, turned and buried the ball into the back of the net to set the tone for a perfect Chelsea evening.

Didier Drogba's return to Stamford Bridge was always going to dominate the headlines - but our third picture is one you may not have yet seen. Perhaps epitomising Drogba's loving relationship with the Chelsea faithful in just one image, this photo shows the lasting respect that will always endure between the 36-year-old and everything Blue.

The Ivorian didn't have his best game - but he still captured west London for another night. And Terry couldn't resist resting his head on the big man's shoulder one more time.

Another star performer last night, Hazard just keeps on producing in a Chelsea shirt. The Belgian completed nine successful dribbles and made four key passes against Roberto Mancini's men. And here he is with the most acrobatic of leaps into the air to control the ball.

Finally, where would Chelsea be without Super Frank ? The 35-year-old was once again superb for the Blues in the competition he helped win only two years ago, producing an accomplished display for the full 90 minutes.

Whether the midfielder will be awarded another Chelsea contract at the end of the current season is still up for debate, but Lampard will be remembered forever at the Bridge - whether he stays or goes. And nights like yesterday's are a huge reason why.
