Chelsea hit City for six

Chelsea have today beaten in form Manchester City 6-0 at Stamford Bridge. City went into the game on the back of three impressive home wins in the Premier League but looked a shadow of that side today at the Bridge. Chelsea took the lead early on in the game when Michael Essien finished after been slid in by Frank Lampard. Lampard did the same soon after, this time setting up Drogba to give Chelsea a 2-0 lead at the break.

City goalkeeper Joe Hart was unlucky to concede a third after superbly denying Lampard but Drogba was there to fire home his second of the match. Joe Cole got in on the act soon after when he strolled through the City defence to slot home and pile further misery on the travelling City faithful.

Soloman Kalou grabbed a fifth for the Londoners after he was slotted in by one of Chelsea's star performers on the day, Michael Essien and he shot the ball thorugh the legs of Joe Hart in the City goal. Once again Essien was the provider for Chelsea's sixth goal which came in the shape of, out of sorts, Andriy Shevchenko.

This result has come totally out of the blue. City have looked incredible this season, but today they just weren't at the races. They will want to get this result out of their systems quick so they can concentrate on getting back on track this season.

Obviously it's a terrific result for Chelsea because many people in recent months have questioned wheter or not they will be as good post Mourinho, but today they certainly proved they are. I'm sure Chelsea fans will be happy to see Drogba bagging a couple after the comments he made in the French magazine last week about wanting to leave the club.
