Chelsea demolish sorry Villa

Published 13 Comments

Chelsea will sit third in the Barclays Premier League at Christmas after smashing sorry Aston Villa 8-0 in a farcically one-sided encounter at Stamford Bridge.

Fernando Torres' power header got the ball rolling for Rafael Benitez's men inside three minutes before a stunning free-kick by David Luiz and a Branislav Ivanovic header had the points in the bag by the break.

Brad Guzan could not keep out Frank Lampard's stinging long-range effort and then suffered the ignominy of Ramires slotting a fifth between his legs before Oscar made it six from the spot in the 79th minute and there was still time for Eden Hazard to become the seventh different goalscorer when he lashed home, while Ramires made it eight at the death.
