Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo felt it was a 'pleasing night' after his side defeated Nordsjaelland in the UEFA Champions League.

Juan Mata scored twice for the reigning kings of Europe while David Luiz's free-kick and a goal from Ramires also earned the three points in Group E.

The scoreline slightly flattered Chelsea after they only held a one-goal lead until the final 11 minutes.

And Di Matteo told Sky Sports 2HD: "I think we were a little bit slow in the first half, and much better in the second half. The goals came at the end and they took a bit of time.

"All in all I think it's a good scoreline for us, three points, a clean sheet away from home as well, so it was a pleasing night."

Di Matteo also hailed goalkeeper Petr Cech for his stunning 73rd minute save when he tipped Joshua John's curling shot onto the far post to keep Chelsea ahead.

"He made a crucial save again, an unbelievable save, it was very difficult and we're pleased that he made that one because obviously it was only 1-0 at the time," Di Matteo added.
