1. Fernando Torres scored the goal for Chelsea tonight and will be brimming with confidence.

2. The Mourinho factor will ensure that the Chelsea strikers are always fired up and mentally prepared.

3. Chelsea are viewed as underdogs for the Champions League yet still gained a creditable draw away in Turkey.
