Chelsea go back to winning ways
Chelsea ended their worst run in more than a decade and finally got back to winning ways, beating Bolton Wanderers 1-0 at Stamford Bridge last night.
Florent Malouda beat Jussi Jaaskaleinen just after the hour mark for his first league goal in more than two months to send the Blues back to the top four.
The Blues won for the first time in seven league matches and are now four points adrift of leaders Manchester United who have a game in hand.
The win should relieve some of the pressure off manager Carlo Ancelotti who many believe could be sacked soon if Chelsea did not improve their play, although owner Roman Abramovich has publicly backed the Italian and believes he can get the Blues’ season back on track.
Bolton were the more aggressive side to start the match, producing chances for the likes of Kevin Davies and Matthew Taylor.
Chelsea were miserable until the beginning of the second half, when they finally put some pressure on the Bolton defence.
They finally broke through with Malouda’s strike which was enough to get them the three points.
