The Blues booked our place in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup with a 2-0 win at Swindon Town. Here, the official Chelsea website looks back at our first domestic cup game of the season in pictures.

Juan Mata in action at Swindon

Having presented Fernando Torres with an opportunity moments earlier, Juan Mata was denied himself soon after when he saw his shot well saved by Swindon goalkeeper Wes Foderingham.

Fortunately, Torres was sharp and alert, and reacted quickest to pounce on the loose ball and score from close range to give us the lead.


Eight minutes later Ramires extended our advantage when he finished in style following an excellent pass by Torres, with Ryan Bertrand and Kevin De Bruyne first on the scene to offer their congratulations.

Jose Mourinho watches on at Swindon

Jose Mourinho watches on from the sidelines at the County Ground. The game was his first involvement in the competition since leading the Blues to a 2-1 final victory over Arsenal in 2007.

David Luiz, who moved into a deep midfield role during the second half, shares a joke with referee Michael Oliver.


Willian completed his first full 90 minutes in a Chelsea shirt and almost opened his account late in the game, only to see his strike roll agonisingly wide of the far post.
