The five goal thriller at The Riverside stadium left the Middlesbrough fans silent. Terry started against Middlesbrough who surprisingly won against Wigan two weeks ago. The five goals from Chelsea makes them the highest goal scoring team in the Premier League though City follow close behind.

Chelsea who have had countless injury worries lately, missing their golden boy Ashley Cole. The injury ridden table leaders though showed the extreme depth of their squad as they hammered home a single goal in the first half, with Kalou scoring only 14 minutes into the game. The home must have still felt there was some hope at half time, after all they beat Wigan who were ahead of the Boro before that match. Middlesbrough who stood in 12th place before today are often associated with the bottom half of the League and the rivalry between Middlesbrough and Newcastle has been a long fought battle.

The second half opened up a dream of a recovery for Middlesbrough like we have seen in many big games in previous season’s but the mood softened when Belletti then Kalou put another two goals away within ten minutes of the second half whistle. The pain and anguish didn’t stop there as Lampard and Malouda added their names to the score sheet to finish the game 5goals to nothing.

Middlesbrough now have nothing left to do except sit, drown their sorrows and wait for the rest of the weekends matches to finish and see where they lie on the Premier League Table. Sunderland who are near to the Boro in location and on the table could strengthen their position against Middlesbrough and take the lead as the best North East team, though Fulham currently stand in their way. A little bit of luck and Roy Keane’s team may yet see another stroke of glory.

Chelsea currently lie 9 points ahead of United though the leaders have played two more games than the defending Champions. Chelsea having injury problems may not have affected the result today though may affect their long term performance and the Premier League has never been a sprint but always ben a marathon of consistent results.
