Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has backed striker Samuel Eto'o to continue improving as he gets fitter following a slow start to his Blues career.
Eto'o, who joined from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala in the summer, scored twice in the 3-0 win over Schalke in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Mourinho said: "It was not a surprise for me that he arrived not in the best conditions after two years in Anzhi.
"Now step by step he is going. He is 32 but he's a fit, slim guy."
The Portuguese coach added: "He's not a heavy body. He's intelligent, of course, and I think goals give confidence.
Uefa has ordered the partial closure of CSKA Moscow's stadium during the club's next Champions League tie following racist chanting directed at Manchester City's Yaya Toure.
The Russian club was charged after Toure complained about the chanting during City's 2-1 win on 23 October.
A single-tiered end section of Arena Khimki will be closed when CSKA host holders Bayern Munich on 27 November.
CSKA had denied Toure's claims he had been racially abused.
But European football's governing body charged the club following a hearing in Switzerland by its control and disciplinary body.
Andre Ayew and Valon Behrami
Ghanaian brothers Andre and Jordan Ayew combined to score a stunning late goal for French side Olympique Marseille in a UEFA Champions League game on Tuesday night, but it was too little too late as they lost 2:1 at home to Italian side Napoli.

It was the third straight loss in the competition for Marseille and it practically dooms their hopes of going beyond the group stage.

The former Chelsea star intercepted a poor backpass before beating Gigi Buffon in the Juve goal in the 36th minute. The Turin giants struck back twice in the second half to take the lead before Turkish star Umut Bulut bagged a late equaliser after being set up by Drogba.

Egyptian wing wizard Mohamed Salah wove his magic once again to lift Swiss champions FC Basel to a 4:2 win over Bulgarian hosts Ludogorets in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League play-off on Wednesday night.
The 21-year-old Pharaoh netted the game's opening goal in the 12th minute and equalised in the 59th minute after the Bulgarians had scored twice.
Newly-signed Cote d'Ivoire striker Giovanni Sio made it 3:2 before Swiss defender Fabian Schar sealed the win from the spot six minutes from time.
