LONDON (AFP) Frank Lampard scored twice as Chelsea leap-frogged champions Manchester United into top spot in the English Premier League with a 5-0 rout of Blackburn Rovers at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. An own goal in the 20th minute from French defender Gael Givet, who turned Nicolas Anelkas cross past goalkeeper Paul Robinson under pressure from Didier Drogba, put the Blues ahead. England midfielder Lampard scored his first Premier League goal since April when he fired home from Drogbas pull back before Michael Essien wrapped up the points in the 52nd minute when he beat Robinson with a curving shot from fully 35 yards out. Lampard scored his second, and Chelseas fourth, from the penalty spot after Drogba was brought down seven minutes later by Rovers captain Ryan Nelsen, the New Zealand defender. The impressive Drogba then added a fifth in the 64th minute as Chelsea made it nine goals in two matches after their midweek 4-0 Champions League defeat of Atletico Madrid. It was an important result for the Blues after theyd lost 2-1 to Aston Villa last time out in the Premier League and Lampard told ESPN: We were disappointed after last week. We wanted to bounce back and we did it in style. Lampard was especially pleased by the confident return of fellow England international Joe Cole, playing his first Premier League match since suffering a knee injury against Southend in January. He is different class, Lampard said. I think everyone knows what Coley brings us, he is something different, he runs with the ball and he can create something out of nothing. Cole added: When youre out for 10 months just getting back on the training pitch is great so to come back to a game like that was fantastic. Earlier, Tottenham Hotspur missed the chance to go level on points with United after losing 1-0 late on at home to Stoke City. The match was goalless until four minutes from time when Glenn Whelan, played in by Ricardo Fuller, struck against a home team a man down with England winger Aaron Lennon off the field after the north Londoners had used all three substitutes. Lennon took himself off and Spurs manager Harry Redknapp said: Were not sure what the problem is. He just said he couldnt carry on and that was that. Stoke boss Tony Pulis, once Redknapps assistant at Bournemouth, said: Ricardos pulled a genie out of the bottle again. That was terrific and Glenn finished it with aplomb. At the bottom of the table, basement club Portsmouth were held to a goalless draw by fellow strugglers Hull. Meanwhile Birmingham beat their former manager Steve Bruces Sunderland side 2-1 and Colombias Hugo Rodallega scored twice as Wigan came from behind to end Burnleys 100 percent home record this term in a 3-1 win. Elsewhere, Wolves drew 1-1 with Midlands rivals Aston Villa. Burnley took an early lead at Turf Moor when Steven Fletcher turned in Robbie Blakes cross in the fourth minute. But Wigan equalised in bizarre fashion seven minutes later when Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen slipped as he came for a Mario Melchiot cross, allowing Rodallega to shoot into the unguarded net. Jensen went off injured moments later. Rodallega then made it 2-1 when he turned in Jason Scotlands 51st minute cross before Emmerson Boyce scored from a corner. At St Andrews, in Birminghams first home game since Hong Kong businessman Carson Yeung bought the club, City went ahead eight minutes before half-time when Liam Ridgewell got on the end of a Sebastian Larsson free-kick. And soon after the break Scotland striker James McFadden doubled Birminghams lead following good work by Larsson. But Sunderland gave themselves a lifeline when Birminghams Scott Dann put through his own net eight minutes from time. In a dire opening period at Hulls KC Stadium, Portsmouth striker Tommy Smith squandered a couple of chances for the visitors. After half-time, Pompeys Aruna Dindane and Hassan Yebda were both denied by Hull goalkeeper Boaz Myhill. It was all-square in the early kick-off at Molineux until England forward Gabriel Agbonlahor put visitors Villa ahead 11 minutes from time. But Wolves rescued a point four minutes later through Sylvan Ebanks-Blakes first Premier League goal, a penalty after Michael Kightly was brought down in the box. Manchester United will end the weekend on top if they win away to arch-rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday. In Sundays other top-flight matches, Arsenal travel to West Ham for an all-London clash, Manchester City face Fulham and Everton make the short journey to Bolton.
