Blues top after win

Next Story

Chelsea went top of the Barclays Premier League with a comfortable 3-0 victory over top-flight new boys Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Goals from Nicolas Anelka, Michael Ballack and Ashley Cole kept Chelsea's 100% record intact and left Burnley tasting defeat for the second time this season.

Burnley had little answer to a rampant Chelsea but it could have been a different story had Martin Paterson not squandered a gilt-edged chance to put Owen Coyle's side ahead in the ninth minute.
