Chelsea finally stopped the rot as arguably their best Barclays Premier League performance for more than two months saw them beat Blackburn 2-0 and climb back into the top four.
Looking to end their worst run in the league for almost 15 years after winning just one of their previous nine games, the Blues dominated from start to finish at Stamford Bridge.
Both their goals came from corner kicks courtesy of Branislav Ivanovic and Nicolas Anelka, with their final ball continuing to let them down in open play.
The duo also found the net against Rovers back in October to keep Chelsea five points clear at the top of the table, but their efforts here were arguably even more precious.
Despite reports he might attend the game, there was no sign of billionaire owner Roman Abramovich prior to kick-off.
