Chelsea 6-0 Wigan – The Match Report

Drogba and Ivanovic celebrate Malouda's goal

Scoring Report:
Chelsea-  Malouda (34) Anelka (48,52) Kalou (78,90) Benayoun (90)
Wigan- N/A

       Chelsea once again produced a masterclass as they hammered Wigan Athletic 6-0 at DW Stadium.

      It started out as a close game, with Wigan enjoying the lion’s share of possession and shots on goal through the first 30 minutes of match time. It took a successful Chelsea counterattack to break the deadlock, with Malouda mopping up a messy rebound conceded by Wigan ‘keeper Chris Kirkland. The score remained 1-0 entering halftime, and it looked like Wigan needed to find a little extra to equalise and turn the tide back to the Latics.

      Instead, they lost it all. Another Chelsea breakaway saw Anelka take a beautifully weighted ball from John Obi Mikel and clinically finish it into the bottom corner; the lead was doubled 2-0. A third goal was added when Malouda’s cross found Drogba in the box, who laid it off for Anelka to nod it home. The rout was on.

     After Malouda gave seventy minutes of valiant Chelsea football, he was substituted for Salomon Kalou; this turned out to be the best substitution of the Premier League so far. In the 77th minute, Drogba broke free of the dismal wigan defence and laid another beautiful ball for Kalou, who slotted it home for a fourth Chelsea goal.

      Kalou made it five in the 90th minute after being on the recieving end of a beautiful cross byDrogba (surprised?) And Chelsea new-boy Yossi Benayoun put the cherry on top after recieving a pass from Paulo Ferreira.

MAN OF THE MATCH: Didier Drogba. 3 goals 1 game, 3 assists another. He proves that at 32, he still can be the fulcrum of a world-class attack.

    By The Way,there was a something wrong in that article,
    “Another Chelsea breakaway saw Anelka take a beautifully weighted ball from Didier Drogba and clinically finish it into the bottom corner; the lead was doubled 2-0”
