Salomon Kalou's freak goal helped Chelsea to extend their 100 per cent record with a 3-1 win at West Ham United.
The champions already led through a Michael Essien header when Kalou struck in the 18th minute - although the Ivory Coast international knew little about it.
Hammers goalkeeper Robert Green spilled a Didier Drogba free-kick and Matthew Upson attempted to hack the ball clear, only to see it strike Kalou and loop into the goal.
The bizarre effort effectively made the game safe for Chelsea, although West Ham never really looked likely to get back into it after Essien's soft goal in the second minute.
He took advantage of slack marking in the Hammers defence to head home from a Drogba corner and set the tone for the afternoon.
Carlo Ancelotti's men were comfortable throughout the first half and John Obi Mikel almost made it 3-0 shortly after the half-hour mark when he smashed a shot against the woodwork.
West Ham improved after the break, with Victor Obinna causing the Blues defence problems, but the hosts' attempts to get back into the game ended in the 83rd minute when Essien rose above Tal Ben-Haim to meet Paulo Ferreira's cross and power home another header.
There was still time for Chelsea to concede their first goal of the season, thanks to a superb Scott Parker effort. However, it was too little too late and the Hammers are still searching for their first point of the campaign. - Metro
