Chelsea became the first Premier League club to book their place in the Champions League quarter-final draw after a 2-0 victory over Galatasaray.

Ex-Nottingham Forest star Jan Aage Fjortoft ‏(@JanAageFjortoft) reckons the media were bigging up the wrong African: “All about Drogba before the game. All about Eto’o after 4mins. #viasatfotball”
