In 2010 Chelsea won a Premier League match 7-1 with the help of four goals from current manager Frank Lampard.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Chelsea was on the march to the Premier League title.

The 2009/10 season was a battle between Chelsea and Manchester United. They finished the season 11 and 10 points respectively ahead of nearest rivals Arsenal.

However, on that run, there was one game that stood out as a demonstration of Chelsea’s dominant form that season.

It was on this very day March 27th, 2010 that the Stamford Bridge went wild. In a display led by midfielder Frank Lampard in the absence of top goal scorer Didier Drogba.

The opponents were Aston Villa, who at the time were no slouches and a solid top half of the table team.

It was a drubbing that saw Lampard give his side the lead in the 15th minute, only for Villa’s Carew to pull Villa level less than 15 minutes later.

However, a penalty converted by in form Lampard right before half time set the wheels in motion.

A completely dominant performance by the Blues in the second half made the game look easy and pushed Ancelotti’s men to pass Fergie’s Red and White army to the league title.
