  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Bolton Wanderers
    • Chelsea
    • - Owen Coyle backs Adam Bogdan while Andre Villas-Boas is not surprised by the result. Managerial reaction
    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+3' FULL TIME. Three for Lampard and two for Sturridge as Chelsea run out 5-1 winners.
    • 90+2' Anelka threatens to get a shot away but Cahill denies him on the edge of the box.
    • 90' We will have three minutes of added time.
    • 90' Now John Terry has to head away as Bolton pepper the Chelsea box. Bolton really are finishing the game very well, even if it is too little too late.
    • 89' Bolton hit the post! Eagles with a fantastic effort that Cech glances onto the woodowork! The scoreline could and should have been a bit closer than this as Bolton have finished strongly.
    • 86' Sturridge drags a shot wide after a clever pass from Drogba but he really should have hit the target and possibly claimed his own hat-trick.
    • 84' That wouldn't have impacted on the result but it should be 5-2 to Chelsea, rather than 5-1.
    • 82' Unbelievable stop! Ivanovic clears off the line to prevent Davies from scoring after Petrov's cut-back. However, replays show that the ball may well have crossed the line.
    • 81' Drogba appears to be complaining that Knight used his elbow in an aerial challenge. I will have to see a replay of that.
    • 80' Stat from Infostrada: The last time Chelsea won by four goals away was against Bolton in Jan 2011 (0-4).
    • 78' Terry goes into the book for a pretty poor challenge on Petrov by the touchline.
    • 75' Now Bolton make changes as Tuncay and Chris Eagles come on for Ngog and Gardner.
    • 73' That was Mata's final action of the game and he is replaced by Anelka, formerly of Bolton of course.
    • 72' Mata plays in Sturridge and he lays the ball off to Cole, who sees an effort blocked by the defence. Chelsea are getting Anelka ready.
    • 70' Superb commitment from John Terry to win the ball in midfield, even with the score at 5-1 to Chelsea.
    • 68' Mata lashes an attempted volley wide of the post. No luck for the Spaniard there though.
    • 66' Mata lashes an attempted volley wide of the post. No luck for the Spaniard there though.
    • 64' Stat from Infostrada: This is Lampard's third PL hat-trick, on the previous two encounters he scored four goals.
    • 62' Petrov with the set-piece but his low effort comes off the heel of a Chelsea man and bounces away. Replays shown Mikel was earlier guilty of a sloppy pass, only for Kevin Davies to float his shot into Cech's arms.
    • 61' Luiz halts an excellent run from Ngog with a bodycheck on the edge of the box. Free-kick in a good position for Bolton.
    • 59' GOAL! 5-1 Chelsea! Frank Lampard with a hat-trick! Drogba flicks a pass who Lampard, who offloads with a first time pass to return the favour. Drogba then spins and turns the ball back into the path of the midfielder, who converts into the far corner. The fifth hat-trick of his Chelsea career.
    • 58' Drogba gets a shot away from the right of the box but drags it wide of the far post.
    • 57' Ramires replaced by John Obi Mikel. Again Chelsea just looking to tighten things up a touch.
    • 56' Bogdan comes to meet the corner but flaps at it. Luckily for the keeper Ramires slams the loose ball over the bar.
    • 55' Petrov finds space on the right but sees his low effort deflected into the path of Cech. Chelsea charge up the other end and Drogba attempts to get a shot away, only to see Knight block his attempt.
    • 54' Here comes the change and Ivanovic replaces Bosingwa at right-back. The Serb offers a more robust option in defence, which is handy against Boton.
    • 52' That is Bolton's first home goal against Chelsea since November 2002 by the way. If they can sneak another this might get interesting.
    • 51' Chelsea are getting Branislav Ivanovic ready on the sidelines. Bosingwa or Luiz to come off?
    • 50' Half-hearted appeals for a penalty as a Chelsea arm floats about in the box but nothing doing for now.
    • 48' Stat from Infostrada: The last time a PL half-time score was a four-goal deficit was on 5 Feb 2011, Newcastle – Arsenal 0-4. A match that ended 4-4.
    • 47' GOAL! Bolton 1-4 Chelsea! The comeback is on! Well, sort of. Petrov with a lovely free-kick from the left and Boyata gets off the mark for Wanderers with a firm header.
    • 46' Zat Knight has come on for Gretar Steinsson at the back for Bolton.
    • 46' KICK OFF!
    • - Liam Evans has this to say on Twitter: "I don't think Bolton can come back now, i know it is early but i think they will be relegated now." Rouslan Halil chips in with: "sturridge to score a hatrick? if he doesnt play in england's match i will lose all my respect of the england team."

    • 45+3' HALF TIME. Brutal stuff from Chelsea with Sturridge and Lampard grabbing two each.
    • 45+2' Drogba threatens to get a shot away from a tight angle after collecting a pass from Ramires but is rightly ruled offside.
    • 45+1' We will have three added minutes.
    • 45' Mata pulls the trigger inside the box and his effort takes a little deflection. Bogdan follows the flight and gets both hands behind the ball to catch - no mean feat when you consider his body of work in this first half.
    • 43' Cahill and Davies leap for the same deep free-kick into the Chelsea box and collide in mid-air. It looked as though it was Drogba who had let his man run free.
    • 42' Stat from Infostrada: Bolton have conceded 12 first-half goals this season. It is the highest amount by any team in the division.
    • 41' Chelsea have enjoyed 69 per cent possession. Dominant doesn't even do it justice really.
    • 40' Bolton really just have to keep this respectable if they can. Chelsea look in the mood for a few more.
    • 38' Sturridge beats the offside trap to race onto a ball over the top and wins a corner for Chelsea. Bosingwa looks to have been brought down when collecting it short but there is no foul awarded.
    • 36' Drogba wins a corner for Chelsea and Lampard's delivery is almost turned into his own net by Davies. Chelsea fling the ball back into the box and behind for a goal-kick.
    • 34' Stat from Infostrada: Daniel Sturridge scores his second goal of the match. Only once before has he scored twice in a PL match, it was against West Ham in April 2011, for Bolton.
    • 32' Bolton's defending has been truly abject and this scoreline will put more pressure on Coyle, who as we said earlier has presided over 10 defeats in 11.
    • 31' Credit to Chelsea, and Sturridge in particular, but Bolton have brought this on themselves and there are long faces all round at the Reebok. Owen Coyle looks distraught.
    • 29' Dear me. Bolton have been absolutely disgraceful today. Why on earth was Luiz allowed to run so far without a challenge? This is dismal stuff from the home side.
    • 27' GOAL! 4-0 Chelsea! Oh dear, part two. Bogdan with an aberration. Luiz is allowed to run 50 yards with the ball and his meek effort is spilled by Bogdan into the path of Lampard, who himself moves on to two goals.
    • 26' GOAL! 3-0 Chelsea! Oh dear. Bogdan with a howler as he fails to keep out a bouncing effort from Sturridge, who claims a second. The forward did superbly to get away from Boyata in the first place though.
    • 25' Stat from Infostrada: Frank Lampard scored his 11th PL goal in 2011. Only van Persie (21), Rooney (19) and Bent (12) have scored more goals this year.
    • 24' Corner for Bolton and Petrov's wicked delivery is inadvertently flicked on by Lampard. Ngog narrowly fails to convert at the back post and it's another corner. This time Boyata heads wide.
    • 22' Luiz tangles with Pratley just inside the penalty area but calls for a penalty are horribly optimistic. Nothing given.
    • 21' Sturridge is enjoying the run of the right wing and he bamboozles Petrov before laying a pass off to Mata, who fires over the target. Robinson asks Petrov for a bit more support next time.
    • 20' Ngog produces a nice turn 25 yards from goal but Terry takes the ball off him to instigate another passage of Chelsea possession. They have been very impressive so far today.
    • 19' Petrov lets fly from range but his effort is never troubling Cech in the Chelsea goal.
    • 18' Sturridge accelerates away from Robinson after a neat turn on the right and squares for Ramires. However, he cannot hit the target when meeting the ball at the near post.
    • 17' Now Lampard forces Bogdan into a save with a fine effort from a tight angle. Chelsea are rampant and this could be a very long, hard afternoon for Bolton.
    • 16' GOAL! 2-0 Chelsea! What a fantastic goal! Lampard makes it two with a neat finish from close range but it was all about the build-up. Ramires played the ball back to Mata with a clever backheel and the Brazilian squared for Sturridge, who teed up Lampard. Liquid football.
    • 15' A thumping challenge from Gary Cahill halts a run from Didier Drogba on the edge of the box. Exellent defending from the England international.
    • 14' Davies meets a diagonal ball with a decent header back across goal but Ngog is crowded out. It looks as though Chelsea will seek to target Ashley Cole's lack of height. Funny that, as it hasn't stopped him being the best left-back of the past ten years or so, has it?
    • 13' Petrov is handed set-piece duties but fires an effort into the wall constructed by Chelsea.
    • 12' Meireles is penalised for a foul on Darren Pratley 25 yards from goal. He came in from behind and failed to get the ball. That was arguably a booking but he gets away with it. Free-kick to Bolton.
    • 11' Chelsea have enjoyed 75 per cent of the possession so far at the Reebok Stadium.
    • 10' The first booking of the game as Ngog is penalised for a late challenge on David Luiz. That was rightly a yellow card.
    • 8' Kevin Davies flicks a glorious ball over the top of the Chelsea defence for Ngog but the Frenchman is ruled offside.
    • 7' John Terry appears to be in an awful lot of pain after getting clattered in a rather sensitive area. Yep, replays shown that Ngog's foot followed through and caught him, er, you know where. Nasty.
    • 6' It already looks like being a long way back for Bolton given their current run of form. Remember, they haven't even scored in their past eight home games against Chelsea either.
    • 4' Chelsea get away with one as Raul Meireles produces a poor backpass that is heading towards goal and away from Petr Cech before the goalkeeper recovers to collect.
    • 3' Now Sturridge fires a shot wide from 25 yards. Remember, he scored eight in 12 during a loan spell at Bolton last season. Coyle tried to sign him on loan again over the summer as well.
    • 2' GOAL! 1-0 Chelsea! It just had to be. Less than two minutes into the game and Sturridge is left completely unmarked to head home from a corner. Awful defending. He commendably refuses to celebrate properly against his former club.
    • 2' Bosingwa loses Martin Petrov down the right wing and forces Boyata into clearing behind for a corner. He almost put that into his own net.
    • 1' Initial indications suggest that Kevin Davies may be playing out on the right wing for Bolton today, with David Ngog through the centre.
    • 1' KICK OFF!
    • 13.29 One interesting fact about this game is that Coyle and Villas-Boas did their Pro Licence together and are good pals. Not today though.
    • 13.35 Want to give me your prediction for today's game or get something off your chest? Get in contact via Twitter and I will try and use some comments during the match. @tomEurosport
    • 13.20 Chelsea's shape changes a bit as it appears Juan Mata will be used out wide on the left, rather than through the centre. Raul Meireles anchors the midfield, with Ramires and Lampard ahead of him. Former Bolton striker Nicolas Anelka is an option from the bench and could make his 350th league appearance in England. Lampard makes his 350th for Chelsea while Paul Robinson brings up 500.
    • 13.15 Today could be a big day for young Daniel Sturridge as it is anticipated that he will be in the England squad to face Montenegro, which is announced tonight. His loan spell at Bolton helped catapult him into contention at Chelsea and Andre Villas-Boas is a big fan, even comparing him to one of his star names at Porto. AVB: Sturridge reminds me of Hulk
    • 13.10 Some good stats for you from Opta today: Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 15 league games against Bolton, winning the last six in a row and not conceding in the last four. Bolton have lost the last eight games in a row at the Reebok versus Chelsea, the longest losing run of any team at home to a single opponent. Bolton haven’t scored in that eight game run and hold the record for the longest run of home games against a single opponent without scoring in Premier League history.
    • 13.05 Bolton sit bottom of the table having lost their past five league games, and 10 of their past 11 spanning the summer. Chelsea are fourth but a win takes them third, three points behind joint leaders Manchester City and Manchester United.
    • 13.00 Bolton make five changes from the side that lost to Arsenal last week with Dedryck Boyata coming in to partner Gary Cahill in defence and Ricardo Gardner in midfield. Kevin Davies also returns to the startng line-up as Bolton field two strikers.
    • 12.55 TEAMS: BOLTON: Bogdan, Steinsson, Boyata, Cahill, Robinson, Gardner, Pratley, Reo-Coker, Petrov, Ngog, K Davies. Subs: Lainton, Muamba, Eagles, Tuncay, Knight, M Davies, Vela. /// CHELSEA: Cech, Cole, Luiz, Terry, Bosingwa, Ramires, Lampard, Mata, Drogba, Meireles, Sturridge. Subs: Turnbull, Ivanovic, Romeu, Mikel, Malouda, Lukaku, Anelka.
    • 12.50 Some team news is already filtering out: Daniel Sturridge returns from injury to play against the side he spent a successful loan spell with last season, while Frank Lampard keeps his place after scoring against Valencia in midweek. Adam Bogdan makes only his fifth league appearance in goal for Bolton due to an injury suffered by Jussi Jaaskelainen.
