Chelsea beat Bolton 4-3 at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea are still in the hunt for the Premier League title with a 4-3 win over Bolton Wanderers despite suffering a late scare at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues went 4-0 up through a brace from Didier Drogba, a Frank Lampard penalty and Michael Ballack's first league goal of the season. However, just when it looked as if the win was in the bag, Chelsea took their foot off the gas and nearly paid the price.

Bolton hit back with three goals in 11 minutes through Andy O'Brien, Chris Basham and Matt Taylor to leave Guus Hiddink biting his nails to the quick on the bench. But Chelsea managed to hold on to the three points keeping the pressure up on Manchester United and Liverpool.
