Bye, bye Mourinho but Blues march on
Chelsea recovered from the departure of manager Jose Mourinho to qualify from their group

Chelsea also topped their group, although their progress was less assured than United.

Chelsea opened with a 1-1 draw against unfancied Rosenborg at Stamford Bridge - a match that turned out to be Jose Mourinho's last game in charge.

Chelsea then went to Valencia in poor domestic form and with skipper John Terry wearing a mask to protect a facial injury. David Villa put Valencia ahead but the Blues rallied to a crucial 2-1 win.

Avram Grant's team then won two and drew two of their remaining games to win the group, with Didier Drogba scoring four goals.
