Didier Drogba was on target as Chelsea cruised to a 2-0 victory at Middlesbrough.

The Ivory Coast international opened the scoring after just eight minutes at the Riverside Stadium, and Brazilian defender Alex´s 35-yard piledriver 12 minutes after the break wrapped up the points.

Boro twice went close through Mido, and Gary O´Neil wasted a good chance with three minutes remaining.
