? The win tonight ensures that Chelsea have reached the knockout stages for the 14th time in their last 15 appearances in the competition they won back in 2012.

? After a period whereby a clean-sheet was just a dream, Chelsea have kept 5 in their last 5 games in all competitions.

? Willian marked his 200th appearance for Chelsea with two goals, the last time Willian scored twice in the same match in the Champions League was back in November 2012 when he was in the Shakhtar Donetsk side that beat FC Nordsjaelland.

? Tonight, Eden Hazard scored and provided an assist for the first time in a Champions League fixture in his career.

? Netting from the spot, Cesc Fabregas scored his 20th goal in the Champions League, becoming only the 4th Spaniard to do so, following in the footsteps of Raul (77), Morientes (33) and a certain Fernando Torres who also has 20 Champions League goals to his name.
