Chelsea old-boys score SIX in nine goal demolition... and another Blue boy bags a consolation

Two former Chelsea players combined to score six goals as Bayern Munich dealt out a crushing nine goal win at the weekend.

Bayern Munich may have had the attacking potency of a blunt pen when they hosted Arsenal a fortnight ago, but at the weekend they were a razor sharp sword handled with ruthless finesse.

Jupp Heynckes' side showed their goalscoring touch had not deserted them, by thrashing a Hamburg side led by former Spurs man Rafael van der Vaart.

The scoreline was one to make a videprinter weep, Bayern won 9-2.

Now those are usually odds related to a football match, rather than a scoreline, so to spell it out, they won by nine goals to two.

The result was simply devastating, with highly rated Korean forward Heung-Min Son on the Hamburg side powerless to anything about it.

Key protagonists in Bayern's supershow were two men with Stamford Bridge connections, Arjen Robben and Claudio Pizarro.

Robben, a key member of Mourinho's Chelsea side, scored two and assisted another, while Pizarro led the line up front - incredibly scoring four goals and assisting two himself.

Pizarro only played a handful of games at Chelsea, and returned to the Bundesliga after being unable to usurp Didier Drogba in attack, and has not looked back - even at the age of 34.

He scored in the 30th, 45th, 53rd and 68th minute, with Schweinsteiger, Ribery, Shaqiri and the two from Robben completing the goals.

There was though time for another player with a Chelsea connection to get on the scoresheet. Jeffrey Bruma, in his second loan spell at Hamburg netted his first goal of the season in the final ten minutes.

It was a memorable game in the Bundesliga, and one for Chelsea fans to savour too in this highlight reel of the game's goals below...
