Braces from Salomon Kalou and Nicolas Anelka (pictured) came in the second half to power Chelsea past Wigan, 6-0 at the DW Stadium. Florent Malouda scored his third goal of the season for a first half lead before the second half onslaught blasted Wigan into dead last in the Premier League. Yossi Benayoun scored his first goal at Chelsea in injury-time to give the Blues their second consecutive 6-0 win. Wigan have now surrendered ten goals and scored none in their first two games, clearly making them an early target for relegation. Chelsea are top of the table again.

  1. yikes- Wigan been outscored 10-0 in two home matches. Could be a long year for “my” Latics. I guess it was a little irrational to think they might have a good season based on the solid studio analysis of their coach at the World Cup.

  2. Damn…although, Blackpool put 4 past these guys and arsenal mutilated blackpool today, makes it difficult to assess chelsea’s brilliance. The funny thing, is that I watched this match for about 20 minutes and Wigan’s tactics and control was very solid…the goals that I saw chelsea score were in transition. They were long balls where the strikers just out ran the wigan defenders. Twenty minutes isnt usually enough to make a good judgement, but I wouldnt say Wigan is the pits. Even though wigan have had 2 ridiculously terrible results, I still wouldnt put them in the relegation pool…hopefully they recover and dont call for their manager’s head (too soon at least).

    • Thanks for the encouragement Mark- I hope you’re right. I was starting to think Wigan may make 07-08 Derby look like a good squad.
