Chelsea beat Sunderland 5-0

Chelsea are back on top of the Premier League after beating Sunderland 5-0 at Stamford Bridge in the rain yesterday afternoon. Nicolas Anelka scored a hat-trick as Luis Felipe Scolari's side completely outclassed their opponents.

Joe Cole returned from injury and was in outstanding form, tormenting the Sunderland defence. Elsewhere Deco and Frank Lampard were on the top of their games for Chelsea with the England midfielder scoring the 100th league goal of his career.

Scolari again hailed Lampard as the best midfielder in the world: "Lampard can score 150 goals in his career. One goal every two or three games is fantastic for a midfielder. I think this season we need to think who is the best in the world. It is Frank Lampard."
