West Brom 0-3 Chelsea Highlights
Nicolas Anelka scored twice as Chelsea claimed a convincing win at rock bottom West Brom to move back above Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.
The Baggies matched the visitors until Jose Bosingwa caught out Scott Carson, smashing his shot into the top corner.
Anelka ran clear to dink home a second then made it 3-0 before the break after latching on to Salomon Kalou’s pass.
Filipe Teixeira fired over for West Brom but Chelsea were always in control despite easing up in the second half.
The win sees Chelsea regain top spot on goal difference, following Liverpool’s 2-0 win at Bolton earlier on Saturday.
The Blues’ build-up to this game was overshadowed by the furore surrounding Didier Drogba, who threw a coin into the crowd in their midweek Carling Cup defeat against Burnley and is facing Football Association charges over the incident.
He was relegated to the bench here by Luiz Felipe Scolari, who has a crippling injury list to deal with and was down to his last 18 fit senior players at the Hawthorns.
