Chelsea went back to the top of the Barclays Premier League with a comfortable 4-1 win over West Ham at Stamford Bridge.

Brazilian defender Alex headed Chelsea in front in the 15th minute but Scott Parker levelled with a stunning volley on the half-hour.

Didier Drogba rose unmarked to restore Chelsea's lead in the 55th minute and Florent Malouda added a third 14 minutes from time. Drogba then added his second of the game in the 89th minute to put Carlo Ancelotti's side one point clear of Manchester United at the summit.
