Rampant Chelsea hammer Ipswich

Published Add your comment

Chelsea went some way to lifting the gloom at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as they began their defence of the FA Cup with a crushing 7-0 win over Ipswich.

The managerless visitors proved ideal cannon fodder for Carlo Ancelotti's faltering double winners, who went into the game on their worst Barclays Premier League run for almost 15 years.

Ancelotti's decision to continue last season's policy of fielding some youngsters in the early rounds of the cup did not backfire, with Daniel Sturridge and Frank Lampard scoring twice, Salomon Kalou also finding the net and Nicolas Anelka ending the goal drought which has coincided with Chelsea's two months of misery. Carlos Edwards' own goal made up the tally.
