It's been all easy for Chelsea so far at home, and though they were expected to win against Birmingham, Chelsea fans might be wondering why they don't play with Florent Malouda and Solomon Kalou on either side of Didier Drogba every week. The front three has been spectacular so far, and Chelsea very much deserve their 2-0 halftime lead.
Malouda scored the opener just three minutes into the match, and it was a fantastic team effort to set up the tap-in. John Terry started the move with a great long ball out of the back to Paulo Ferreria, who swung in a near post cross. Didier Drogba flicked a header behind him, setting up Malouda for an easy finish.
The second goal came from Solomon Kalou, and it was an absolute screamer from about 25 yards away from goal. Once again, Didier Drogba was the man who provided the assist.
The front three of Chelsea combined beautifully throughout the half, and there's no reason their great play shouldn't continue into the second half. Carlo Ancelotti's seriously gotten it right with his team selection today.
