Andriy Shevchenko celebrated his Chelsea return by spearheading a 2-0 home victory over Sunderland.

The Blues confirmed shortly before kick-off that top scorer Didier Drogba had undergone surgery to correct his troublesome knee and Shevchenko was the beneficiary.

His second Premiership goal of the season may only have been a routine finish of Salomon Kalou´s 23rd-minute cross, but it capped a lively display. Frank Lampard´s conversion of a soft 79th minute penalty - given for Danny Higginbotham´s weak pull on Alex - killed off the match when Chelsea should have been out of sight sooner.
