David Luiz, love him or hate him, is always going to play on his terms. Today, he got the party started in the second half scoring a goal the forward formerly known as Fernando Torres now known as the Great White Hype would have been proud of. Luiz if you must know is listed nominally as a central defender.
Didier Drogba overcoming that huge ACN letdown in the finals showed he's still full of goals thumping in a header from a Frank Lampard corner. And then it was Lampard's turn to score from a Juan Mata cross as Chelsea romped home easy winners against Bolton.
One more thing. In what planet is one of the sport's hotshot managers in his first year in one of the toughest league suddenly in danger of losing his job? Yes, you're right. It's the Roman Abramovich bubble world. Andre Villa- Boas is now the one saddled with the albatross of resurrecting Torres's career. The one that cost Carlo Ancelotti his job. It's not the matter of winning the CL or the Premier League anymore. Abramovich wants someone, anyone from making him look like a clown for paying £50m for a player who has scored just three goals.
This win keeps the pressure on Arsenal to come up with the goods tomorrow against Spurs who're now looking to reverse a lifetime of living in the shadows of their more illustrious North London rivals.
