Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is happy to see the club again hopping after victory over QPR.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich could not hide his glee, high-fiving his companions in the directors' box as Di Matteo ticked off another item on the Russian's to-do list by getting Fernando Torres firing.

That is something the sacked Carlo Ancelotti and Andre Villas-Boas failed to manage but Di Matteo played down the impact it might have on his hopes of being appointed full-time.

"When you have good results, everybody connected with the club is very happy and I'm pleased we put a smile on our boss but I think everybody from the players to our supporters were pleased on Sunday," he said.
