Blues atop English football

12:24 pm on 20 September 2010

Chelsea have brushed aside Blackpool 4-0 to remain the only side in the English Football League with a perfect record.

The Blues kept their lead at the top of the table over Arsenal and Manchester United after goals to Florent Malouda, who nabbed a pair, Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou.

Chelsea lead by four points ahead of the Gunners and the Red Devils, while Manchester City stay fourth after beating Wigan 2-0.

Elsewhere, Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov scored a memorable hat-trick to give the Manchester United football club a 3-2 Premier League win over arch-rivals Liverpool.
