Thanks for all your feedback tonight - great views! I hope you enjoyed the commentary and join us for another game soon
Chelsea are top of the group thanks to Basel's draw with Bucharest
Its over - a fantastically professional performance from Chelsea. Schalke threatened but you always felt Chelsea were in control.
David Luiz tries to get in on the act as a clearance falls to him at the edge of the area but his shot is just wide
it was another breakaway - a clearance saw Hazard and Torres through with just one defender back for the home side... Hazard used the run of Torres to create space and finished coolly past Hildebrand
IT'S 3-0 - FANTASTIC GOAL FROM HAZARD
Weak effort by Goretzka goes wide and Mourinho decides he can now rest oscar - Luiz comes on
With two home games to come, you'd have to count Chelsea as favourites to qualify
With Basel winning, Schalke, Chelsea and Basel will all have 6 points from three games
Suddenly very quiet in the stadium - the pocket of Chelsea fans finally making themselves heard
Another sub for Schalke - Goretzka comes on for Meyer
Johnny : It may be 2-0 but I still thing we need one more goal to finish the game off. Schalke are still dangerous
Schurrle is replaced by John Obi Mikel
and suddenly Torres is on a hat trick!
Schalke bring on Szalai for Boateng
It was a fantastic break from Chelsea - Hazard won the ball.. it was taken on at great pace by Oscar who held off the challenges and had the awareness to square it to an unmarked Fernando Torres... he took his time, sat the goalkeeper down and slotted home
GOAL FOR CHELSEA 2-0
Will Schalke break through - you tell me via email - email@example.com or twitter - "1rebs
Howedes should have scored, the corner was headed back across goal and the defender had a free header and put it wide
Meyer hits a speculative effort and wins a corner
you start to wonder if Schalke do have a goal in them - if they have the nouse to break down Chelsea - great work in Midfield but so far no-one to deliverthe killer touch
Free kick for Schalke by Clemens is poor , it's put back in by Neustadter but cleared
Chelsea just knocking the ball around at the moment but Schalke's breaks are dangerous - here comes Meyer... Aogo's ball again - but Cech dives to clear
Dhruv Gandhi: I predict Chelsea to win 2-0, Hazard scoring the second goal.
Lampard delivers a corner - Torres header goes just wide into the side netting
Benjy : Chelsea are looking fantastic in defence all we need now is Juan Mata to come in and make the difference on the other end
Cahill is booked for a clash with Boateng
Oonagh: Chelsea need the spirit of Mata on the field
Uchida finds himself in space - plays for the corner, and wins it... Clemens ball is cleared by Torres - falls to Boateng, but his cross is claimed by Cech
Freekick from Lampard is met by Torres but he hits the underside of the cross-bar - that was a superb header
Appeal for a penalty from the Schalke players but their handball claims come to nothing
Jones is booked for a professional foul on Ramires
And we're back underway for the second half - no changes at half time
Anthony: Everybody knows Mata + Torres = Goal!!!!!!!
Willie: Delighted with the torres goal coming so early and I thought chelsea might push on further from it, but it's been disappointing going forward so far, they need to show more grit in the second half because shalke will score! bring on mata for schurrle and chelsea will be more creative. still say 2-1 chelsea. Come on you blue beauties!!!
Kelvin: Good first half, bring on Eto'o for the second half
Keep your opinions coming in email firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @1rebs.... seems most of you are pretty happy with the performance but slightly worried by Schalke coming back into it. The Germans have looked dangerous, especially down the left with Aogo - will Mourinho try to combat that?
Max: Come on Chelsea u need to sharpen up. Where is the class we where promised that would come with Mourinho.
The Deano: If we don't score early in the 2nd half I can see us not winning this, get mata on to create some magic
Richard from Nottinghamshire: I predict Chelsea win 3-0 Oscar and Lampard penalty but why has Jose fallen out with Kevin de Bruyne he is a great great player!!!
Joel: I hope to see Willian coming to score
From Toby: CHELSEA to win 3-0 with Mata and Lampard to score! CHELSEA is definitely going to win. COME ON BLUES!!!
David From Stoke : Chelseas Defence Is A Brick Wall, They Will Catch Schalke On The Counter Attack
So as the teams head into the dressing rooms, what would you be saying if you were Jose Mourinho? How do you see this going in the second half? what have you made of the performance so far?
We're in stoppage time now - 1 minute of it..... and there goes the whistle 1-0 half time lead for Chelsea
Anthony: This is Chelseas game 1-3 with Lampard and Oscar scoring
Schurrle comes forward and looks to find Torres but Schalke deal with it well.. from the throw-in Chelsea are pushed back to the halfway line
JOSEPH MATONDA : Good football from Chelsea predict 4-1 Chelsea..Oscar to score
sriramkrishna : Chelsea need to hold the ball rather than losing it continuously .Hazard has also had a quiet game for the Blues.
Another good ball from Aogo, Meyer knocks it back for Draxler but its blocked - Schalke are really giving it a go here
This time there's a huge scramble in the goalmouth - boots flying but no-one can quite get the telling touch and Chelsea survive
The corner comes in... powerful header from Neustadter - great save from Cech... another corner
Great move from the home side sees a ball into the area from Aogo but Cech saves the header, the ball falls to Boateng, but his shot is saved - corner
Steve from Crawley: I'm hoping for Mata to come on after half time and score. Chelsea win 1-2
Chelsea content to slow the game down in midfield but now they spring forward - Oscar plays it through for Hazard - great run from the Belgian - but he's crowded out
Chelsea play the offside trap to perfection again as Boateng looks to get in behind - frustrating for the home side
Ramires fouls Draxler as the German tries to get away - lucky not to be booked there
Noble from London: I believe Chelsea are going to win 2-0
The game has settled down a lot in the past 5 mins. fairly even, although the home side are looking dangerous from wide positions. Chelsea very disciplined as you'd expect of a Mourinho side

Azpilicueta gives the ball away in a dangerous position - Uchida looks to getaway to square the ball, but Azpilicueta makes up for his mistake with a good tackle
good move from Schalke - good through ball from Neustadter puts Uchida in but his shot is high and wide
Aogo's corner is cleared by Terry
Aogo finds himself forward again with a chance to cross... its cleared for a corner
Ivanovic gets forward, cuts into the area and tries a one-two with Oscar. the ball eventually falls to the Brazilianbut his shot is way off target
Draxler threads it through to Aogo, he's one-on -one but Cech pulls off a great save - but it wouldnt have counted - the flag is up
Schalke starting to get some possession back after the fast start by Chelsea...
Good run by Uchida, but he slips at the vital moment, the crowd want a free-kick but nothing is given
Another good ball into the box - Uchida this time but the header from Draxler is weak
Aogo puts a decent ball across into the box but Schalke have no-one in there. Chelsea getting plenty of bodies behind the ball
Oscar looks for Torres but he's offiside
Chelsea have got control of the possession now after the goal... seems to have shocked the home side - although the crowd are still up for it
You got your wish!.....Willie: big game tonight for chelsea and in my opinion a must win! would love to see torres score but i have my doubts. 2-1 to chelsea tonight with oscar scoring again and eto'o to get one when he comes on for torres
Dreadful clearance by Hildebrand falls to Lampard but his long-range effort doesn't punish the goalkeeper
The early goal from Chelsea - vital in quietening the crowd in this stadium who were creating a hostile atmosphere
Its 1-0 Chelsea - fine anticipation by Torres on the far post
Corner for Chelsea - Ivanovic's flick falls to Torres on the far post....
Early corner for Chelsea comes to nothing
We're underway here in Germany
