Linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the past, the Colombian striker showed just why the Blues had coveted him with a superb treble that put the result beyond doubt by the break.

Falcao had already hit the bar by the time he broke the deadlock after six minutes and he doubled his side's advantage with a left-footed curling finish that left Peter Cech with no chance.

His third came when he rounded off fine a counter-attacking move just before the interval, meaning he had scored a hat-trick for the second time in six days.

Defender Miranda added a fourth on the hour and although Chelsea did get a goal back through Gary Cahill, it was a tough night at the office for the Champions League holders.
