Chelsea "Kill" Sunderland ( Chelsea 7-2 Sunderland )


It was Chelsea at their best... The best performance in this season so far. And what a great way to begin 2010 in Premier league.

Though Chelsea was under a lot of criticism following sloppy performance during the last weeks of 2009 , they came back really strong in 2010 and proved some point for sure. Even in the absence of their best hit man Drogba , and mid field mastero Essien ; Chelsea didn't show any signs of a weakend sign. They proved to be good enough for the title " best Club " in England.
It was Nicolas Anelka who has been out for few matches due to injury started the goal rain in 8th minute with a beautiful volley past the goal keeper.Then literally it was raining in stamfordbridge. Chelsea attacked with heart producing 4-0 lead at the half time vistle with Malouda ( 17 ) , Ashley Cole ( 22 ) and Lampard ( 34 ) netting the ball.
At half time Chelsea brought on two substitues Alex for Terry and Zirkov for Cole. Chelsea started off from where they paused at half time. It was Ballack ( 52 )this time with a superb header . Later Anelka ( 65 ) and Lampard ( 90 )scored one each to claim four goals between them each scoring a twin.

Sunderland did returned two goals one in 56th minute by Zenden and the next by Bent on 92nd minute. Both the goals were from Chelsea's sloppy play in set peice defending. Ancelotti's boys defenitely have to work and sort out this problem if they want to kiss some silverwares this season.

Ancelotti appeared very happy with his team's performance and this is what he said in a post match interview ,

" We have just given maybe our best performance of the season. This is how we should continue to play from now until the end of the campaign.

"I took John Terry and Ashley Cole off at half time because John had a problem with his back, while Ashley took a knock on his ankle. But it was just a precaution.

"As for Ashley's goal - it was fantastic. Fantastic movement, and a fantastic pass from John Terry."
