Blues maintain perfect start

Chelsea maintained their perfect start to the new season with a 2-0 victory over Stoke City at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard saw his early penalty saved by Thomas Sorensen, but it didn't prove costly as goals from Florent Malouda and Didier Drogba - who took over spot-kick duties when Chelsea were awarded a second -  secured a third straight victory for the Blues and ensured they stayed top of the table.

Elsewhere, Arsenal picked up a hard-fought three points at Ewood Park with a 2-1 win over Blackburn. Theo Walcott's opener was cancelled out by on-loan United striker Mame Biram Diouf, before Andrey Arshavin netted a second half winner.
