A number of fringe players featured for Chelsea last night, in the 6-0 battering the Blues gave over visiting Champions League team NK Maribor including Kurt Zouma, Filipe Luis and Loic Remy - all pictured in the starting team photograph above.
Academy graduate Dominic Solanke also made the substitutes bench and eventually appeared in the second half, in order to make his senior debut.
In Diego Costa's absence, Loic Remy was able to provide some firepower. Costa has been ruthless in his transition from Atletico Madrid to Chelsea, scoring for fun in a Blue shirt, yet Remy, too, has proven a competent goal-scorer.
Diego Costa's involvement in the club's imminent fixture list could be hampered by hamstring problems, though, and his deputy Remy could also be out of action after the Frenchman was withdrawn and replaced by Didier Drogba.
Within minutes of replacing Remy, Drogba was also on the scoresheet as he struck in the 23rd minute - his first goal for Chelsea since the climactic penalty shoot-out in the Champions League final in 2012.
Chelsea captain John Terry put in a good performance at both ends of the pitch as he was not only defensively solid, but produced an exceptional run that was literally from one box to another as he also got in on the goal-fest.
Eden Hazard is in fine form right now as the attacker scored twice in the final 15 minutes to underline an individual display that was high on wizardry.
