Chelsea began the defence of their Premier League title with a crushing 6-0 victory over West Brom as Didier Drogba scored a hat-trick at Stamford Bridge.
The Baggies looked bright in possession throughout but were taught a harsh lesson about life in the top flight as Chelsea ruthlessly capitalised on defensive mistakes.
Scott Carson was the first to falter as he spilled a Drogba free-kick after just six minutes, allowing John Obi Mikel to turn the ball back to Florent Malouda for the simplest of finishes.
Drogba then slammed another free-kick straight through a West Brom wall that had parted embarrassingly to double Chelsea's advantage on the stroke of half-time.
The Ivory Coast striker made it 3-0 from close range in the 55th minute after West Brom had failed to clear a corner, before Frank Lampard slotted home following a neat move.
A deflected effort gave Drogba his treble and Malouda then completed the scoring just before the final whistle after rounding Carson.
