Reigning European champions Chelsea are targeting a quick knockout stage qualification this season.

The Blues grabbed their first of the 2012/13 campaign with a 4-0 result at Nordsjalleand last night and midfielder Frank Lampard is keen to ensure a path through to the next phase as soon as possible.

"It is important now that we try and get wins again and then we will have that foot into the next stage," said Lampard whose Chelsea side sit on top of Group E with four points from two outings.

"It was very important to win this considering we drew our first game.

"What happened last year shows how tough it is to win away. We didn't win away in the group stages last season but we went on to win the competition. There are a lot of ways to skin a cat."
