Blues secure title in style

Published Add your comment

A Didier Drogba hat-trick helped Chelsea cruise to Barclays Premier League glory with a resounding 8-0 hammering of Wigan at Stamford Bridge.

Goals from Nicolas Anelka and Frank Lampard put Chelsea 2-0 up at the break before the Blues went on the rampage with Salomon Kalou, Anelka and Drogba finding the net within nine minutes of each other in the second half.

Drogba struck twice more, and Ashley Cole converted a well-taken volley to condemn Wigan to defeat and secure the Blues' first Premier League trophy since 2006.
