Chelsea beat West Ham 4-1 at the Bridge on Saturday with goals from Alex, Didier Drogba (2) and Florent Malouda. Drogba will grab some headlines with this double strike but it was Florent Malouda and his fantastic performance that earned a standing ovation from the Chelsea fans.

Malouda ran the show on Saturday, had plenty of the ball and although he scored he had a part to play in two of the other goals with sublime crosses for Alex to head home in the first half to put us 1-0 up and Didier Drogba header at the far post from point blank range after another superb Malouda cross.

West Ham to their credit worked hard and made life difficult for Chelsea. It was West Ham who created the first clear cut chance of the game as the ball was pulled back to Ilan 8 yards out smack bang in the middle of the goal and he shot over the bar when he should of scored.

We took the lead after a Malouda corner was cleared back out to him and he floated a cross to the on rushing Alex who beat his marker and scored with a powerful header. It looked comfortable for Chelsea at this stage as we were dominating possession. As predicted West Ham would always work hard and make a game of it and with their hardest working player on the pitch in Chelsea old boy Scott Parker they did just that.

No one would of expected what was to happen next. A throw in down our right hand side was taken square across the body of Parker into the middle of the pitch. Just as he is being put under pressure the ball pitches up and from 30 yards out Parker hits a volley high over Turnbull's head into the net to make it 1-1. You could of had Cech, Hilario and Turnbull in goal standing next to each other and they wouldn't of had a chance!. Great strike to make it 1-1.

Just before half time another Malouda cross this time to the pushed forward Ferriera was spot on and his header went straight to the arms of Rob Green in goal. Half time 1-1.

No changes at the start of the second half and its pretty much the same as Chelsea dominate possession and Malouda heavily involved in our attacking play once more. In the 55th minute another Malouda cross is the difference. This time he floats a perfect cross to Drogba to head home from 2 yards. 2-1 Chelsea.

Chelsea continue to knock on the door and after the goal goes in the fight seems to evaporate from West Ham. Its all Chelsea now and Green makes a save from Alex as Terry follows up and hits the side netting. Joe Cole comes on for Anelka on 65 mins. Mikel shoots just wide on 73 mins and then the Malouda hits one for himself. He comes inside and collects the ball, steps towards the edge of the box and cuts back onto his left foot dead centre of the pitch, he strikes it hard and low into the bottom corner, Green no chance and its 3-1 Chelsea.

Zhirkov comes on for Ivanovic on 79 mins and shortly after Lampard hits the post!. On 86 minutes Carlo Ancelotti gives Malouda the chance to receive a warm reception from the fans as he comes off for Kalou. A standing ovation well deserved for Malouda.

Then the fourth goal goes in. Lampard collects the ball in midfield and comes forward. He has time and space and 25 yards out he strikes the ball low down to Green's right hand side. He makes a meal of the saves and the ball comes loose. Drogba is on it like a flash and hits home to make it 4-1.

A great result for Chelsea and a good performance ahead of the big game this Tuesday. Let's hope we get the same performance and result!
