No, as i said yesterday. It is a practice match. First team and all the youngsters are involved. Blues News at 6.30 may speak more about it.

World-Cup winning striker Fernando Torres was on the scoresheet as Chelsea recorded a 3-0 victory over the Wanderers in a practice match at Cobham on Tuesday afternoon.

Yossi Benayoun danced through the visiting defence to open the scoring in the early stages and Nikki Bull produced a fine stop to deny Didier Drogba, while Scott Rendell missed Wycombe's best chance of the half from a tight angle.

Torres stroked home from 18 yards to make it 2-0 after the break before defender Slobodan Rajkovic finished well from close range. At the other end, Marvin McCoy drew a smart save from Ross Turnbull after out-pacing England left-back Ashley Cole.

Chelsea went close to extending their lead late in the second half but Salomon Kalou's low drive cannoned back of the post and Nicolas Anelka was denied by Steve Arnold from 15 yards.

Chelsea first-half XI: Hilario, Bosingwa, Van Aanholt, Terry, Kalas, Mikel, Kaby, Benayoun, Malouda, Kakuta, Drogba.

Chelsea second-half XI: Turnbull, Ferreira, Cole, Ivanovic, Rajkovic, B Clifford (Mellis), McEachran, Zhirkov, Anelka, Kalou, Torres.

Goals: Benayoun (4), Torres (52), Rajkovic (56)

Looks like just about every player in the squad got a run-out . Probably proves that AVB was gauging the personnel , just as much as the fitness and is showing an open mind with giving every player of the extended squad a chance . Either way , good start for the AVB tenure .

The highlight from the match report :

Salomon Kalou's low drive cannoned back of the post

:D

Gary Waddock (Wycombe manager) - "Chelsea have looked after us brilliantly and their manager has been excellent. I hope they benefitted from it as much as we have."

Good win! :)

That was some goal from Yossi. I hope he doesn't get injured again.

So far:

Torres 2 goals, both came after Anelka's pass :P

Nice to see Rajkovic and Ivanovic playing together for my fav team :D

Always rated Benayoun, even when at Scumpool, always thought he was there best player. That goal is just an example.

The players tour of Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong later this month, means they will travel 19,091 miles during their pre-season preparations - the most of any Premier League club, ever.

By contrast, top-flight new boys Swansea will travel only 19 miles - playing away friendlies against Neath and Port Talbot. Theres lovely boyos :smiliecap1:

Hope all this shirt selling doesnt cost us in real games :whistling:

ow it could well do but the club wont be to fussed .

Always rated Benayoun, even when at Scumpool, always thought he was there best player. That goal is just an example.

i completely agree he should play more often for us ( especially in the cup ) he provides flashes of creativity in a otherwise unimaginative team .
