Chelsea back on song with fluent display
Published: Monday 8th of December 2008
Goals from Nicola Anelka and Deco gave Chelsea a crucial 2-0 away win against Bolton on Saturday.
The victory saw the Blues maintain their pursuit of current leaders Liverpool, cutting the Premier League's pace-setters' advantage to just a single point.
Both sets of fans were treated to a closely-fought match in which Luis Filipe Scolari's men were made to work hard for the result.
After former Bolton hitman Anelka gave the visitors the lead inside the first ten minutes, it fell to their mercurial Portuguese playmaker Deco to net a spectacular bicycle kick to double Chelsea's advantage less than 15 minutes later.
While the match failed to produce further goals there was no shortage of incident as the home side rallied towards the end, meaning the visitors' record-breaking 11th consecutive away league win was, in spells, as hard-earned as it was stylish.
Blues fans and lovers of the beautiful game are sure to enjoy the Chelsea FC Stadium Tour. LondonPass holders can gain free entry to the tour, saving £15 for adults and £9 for children.
