Stamford Bridge:

Chelsea booked their place in the group phase of the Champions League with a 3-0 victory over MSK Zilina and completed the signing of Hernan Crespo in a double celebration at Stamford Bridge. Argentina striker Crespo completed a move from Inter-Milan, estimated to have cost £16 million ($25.03 million). He will join compatriot and fellow newcomer Juan Sebastian Veron at the west London club where Russian oil tycoon Roman Abramovich has spent nearly £100 million ($157 million) since taking over last month. Another new signing was defender Glen Johnson who headed Chelsea into the lead on Tuesday in the 32nd-minute. Robert Huth nodded the second goal in the 67th and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink lashed in a third.
