I was surprised but impressed at the team selection first of all the other night. AVB has spoken of the fact that he isn't afraid to rest/drop players and he did exactly that with Lampard on the bench and JT not involved at all. Some people said it was a gamble at the time, but with the squad we have it was a big thumbs up from me. If we are to believe that we can go all the way and to be successful this season then we have to use the full squad so like I said it was a positive and not a gamble at all.

The performance itself was better once again, an improvement from Sunderland at the weekend and AVB and the team delivered the home win and three points.

There were plenty of bonuses for me from the game. We saw the return of David Luiz and what an impact he had on the game. He created his goal from nothing and finished off with the kind of finish most forwards would be proud of.

Meireles pushed further forward played well again and really does give us something extra in midfield.

Fernando Torres played well and as we know set up both goals. I just want to point out one thing that Torres deserves real credit for in the game. I am talking about the second goal. Bearing in mind his scoring record at the Bridge and the pressure that he is under at the moment, he put all that to one side when after skipping past the challenge he was in on goal, rather than take the shot on, he looked up and saw players in better positions than he was and squared the ball to Mata to score. A pat on the back for Mr Torres and both goalscorers were quick to point out his role in their goals.

In Juan Mata we really do have a gem within our side and another performance from him that shows us exactly what we have been missing. We have been looking for the conductor of our orchestra for a while now and this guy can be exactly that. Another goal and another important contribution.

So we won the game, the only English side to take three points from the opening game of the competition and another positive display built on improvement from the last. AVB got the selection right, the performance was better and we go into this weekend playing much better.

Things are beginning to take shape!
