'We are top of the league,' sung the Chelsea contingent as they saluted a team that had delivered when the pressure was on - Joe Cole and Didier Drogba goals sending the Blues back to the summit.
The next time Kalou had the ball the result was a whole lot better. He slipped the ball forward to Drogba who was a yard offside but the flag stayed down. From angle the finish was simply awesome, smashed past Van der Sar and inside the near post.
