CHELSEA went into cruise control as they thrashed Malmo 4-0 at Stamford Bridge.
It was their biggest win so far under Thomas Tuchel.
And the win saw the Blues bounce back from their last European outing, a defeat to Juventus.
But who was top dog in west London? And did anyone have a game to forget?
Here, Simon Phillips delivers his Chelsea player ratings against Malmo…
Edouard Mendy – 6
I forgot he was even on the pitch at times all bar a few moments when he was used to pass back to and play out again.
He wasn't tested at all by Malmo.

Andreas Christensen – 8
Scored his first ever Chelsea goal tonight and it was a centre forward's volley, brilliant finish. He went on to have a good all round performance to add to his goal and was as calm as ever.
Thiago Silva – 8
Chelsea's main man playing out from the back and he was also trying some clever long passes, something that Chelsea don't do enough.
Antonio Rudiger – 8
It was business as usual for Rudiger after his back injury last week. Comfortable on the ball and a threat for Chelsea in attack on corners and crosses. Won a penalty in the second half superbly.
Cesar Azpilicueta – 8
The captain was everywhere tonight, and he was asked to play as more of an inverted wing back, meaning he was popping up as a centre forward, as a centre midfielder, and as a right winger! It worked well and he was involved in everything Chelsea did with the ball.
Jorginho – 8
Took both his penalties superbly and he was always looking for the long ball over the top of the defence breaking pass. He was looking very energetic and played a bit further forward than usual helping Chelsea attack.
N'Golo Kante – 7
He was a little quiet at times but at the same time didn't put a foot wrong and was often involved with Chelsea's attacks making the simply passes. He came alive in the second half and was great driving with the ball.
Ben Chilwell – 8
He continued his top form of late and was a real asset for Chelsea in attack. He always looks like a real goal threat when playing in this position and he was enjoying his football once again.
Mason Mount – 8
He looked a lot more livelier tonight after a bit of a dip in form. He was direct, made clever progressive passes into the box, and he was really looking to make things happen and caused a lot of problems for Malmo.
Timo Werner – 6
He missed an sitter early on from almost on the goal line but looked very lively until he also had to come off with a worrying hamstring injury on 43 minutes.
Romelu Lukaku – 7
He was looking so good and did brilliantly to win a penalty, which unfortunately he got injured from and came off for Kai Havertz.

Kai Havertz for Lukaku (21 mins) – 8
He didn't look too comfortable when he came on but he soon got a feel for it and scored a beautiful goal and his general play was very good.
Callum Hudson-Odoi for Werner (43 mins) – 8
Came on in his favoured left forward position and looked dangerous right away. His direct style of play and pace literally made a goal for Havertz early in the second half.
Saul Niguez for Kante (65 mins) – 6
Comfortable when he came on and didn't put a foot wrong.
Reece James for Azpilicueta (65 mins) – 7
Looked very hungry when he came on and was a real threat in attack.
Marcos Alonso for Chilwell (65 mins) – 5
Clumsy moments and gave away a couple of silly fouls.
