Premier League: Chelsea 6-0 West Brom

Table of Contents
Chelsea began the defence of their Premier League title in fine style as they demolished newly-promoted West Bromwich Albion 6-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Florent Malouda pounced on Scott Carson's howler in the sixth minute to open the scoring and Didier Drogba doubled the lead with a free-kick just before the break.

Drogba, who won the Golden Boot with 29 goals last season, made it 3-0 from close range in the 55th minute after West Brom had failed to clear a corner, before Frank Lampard slotted in a fourth on 63 minutes after a clever exchange between Nicolas Anelka and Ashley Cole down the left.

A deflected effort in the 68th minute gave Drogba his treble and Malouda then rounded off the rout with a sixth in the final minute to complete a stunning victory.
