Chelsea maintained their firm grip on the Premier League top spot with a 4-0 win against ten-man Bolton at the Reebok.

Chelsea dominated much of the play and went ahead in first-half injury time through a Frank Lampard penalty, Jlloyd Samuel being sent off for his trip on Didier Drogba.

Chelsea broke from defence after 61 minutes for former Bolton striker Nicolas Anelka to set up Deco for the second, with the third going in off a combination of Branislav Ivanovic and Wanderers defender Zat Knight before Drogba claimed the fourth.
