Chelsea made it three wins out of three in all competitions with a 5-0 hammering of Swansea City away from home in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Blues were favourites to win the match at the Liberty Stadium, but not many football followers would have expected them to emerge victorious by such a big margin.
Jose Mourinho’s side were in control of the contest right from the start and took the lead in the very first minute through Oscar.
Spain international striker Diego Costa made it 2-0 in the 20th minute and doubled his tally on 34 minutes, before Brazilian playmaker Oscar made it 4-0 just moments later.
Chelsea wrapped up the game with the fifth goal 11 minutes from full time when Andre Schurrle etched his name on the scoresheet.
The win against Swansea on Saturday combined with Manchester City’s defeat to Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday means that Chelsea are now five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Following the triumph in Wales, Chelsea duo Oscar and Petr Cech took to social networking site Twitter to revel in the success.
