The Blues earned three crucial points to prevent falling too far behind in the leader boards in a 1-nil win against Blackburn yesterday. Cech broke his nose in the first half and played through it. Ivanovich crossed a peach of a pass to Lampard who lunged wholeheartedly to head the ball into the back of the net. Though Blackburn did have their opportunities to score, Chelsea came out on top. And Lampard continues to strengthen his role as leading scorer for the club in all competitions this season.
