Match Preview

Coyle staying positive The fighter in Owen Coyle goes into battle with Chelsea on Sunday bearing the scars of a wretched start to the season, but confident he will eventually come out smiling. A lengthy injury list and a difficult run of fixtures means Bolton and boss Coyle head into their Reebok Stadium clash with the Blues rock bottom of the Barclays Premier League. Bolton have lost five of their six league games to date - 10 of 11 if you take the end of last season into consideration - and against Chelsea their record is even worse. The Trotters have suffered eight consecutive losses on home soil to Chelsea, failing to find the net even once, and conceding 20 goals in the process. Coyle is already without a number of long-term injured, with the casualty list compounded this week when it was announced midfielder Stuart Holden faces another six months on the sidelines with a knee problem. To add to his woes, on-loan Gael Kakuta is ineligible as he cannot face his parent club, David Wheater and Ivan Klasnic are suspended, and goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen is doubtful with a leg knock. Throw in the fact that come the end of Sunday Bolton will have played Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal in their first seven games, and it is easy to see why Coyle is currently rolling with the punches. "It's easy for me to stay positive because I know exactly how this game works. I've had a career in it," Coyle told Press Association Sport. "I know at different times there are trials and tribulations, that you get a smack in the teeth and it's not particularly nice. "But I also know you can feel the other side of it, and when you do that and you've earned wins when you and the club have not been in an ideal position, there's a sense of overcoming an obstacle. "It then becomes a case of `right, where's the next one, let's go and overcome that again`. "But no matter where I've been, even as a player, I've always had to fight and go and earn whatever has come my away, and I'm quite prepared to go and do that again. "We realise we've been beset by horrible injuries, real traumas in terms of how long the players will be out - Chung-yong Lee, Stuart Holden, and with another five or six on top of that. "Then there has been the set of fixtures we've been given, but that is the nature of football. "If you are going to let something like that get you down then you shouldn't be in the game." Daniel Sturridge could return to the Chelsea line-up having missed last Saturday's win over Swansea and Wednesday night's Champions League draw at Valencia with a knee injury. The forward knows Coyle well after spending the second half of last season on loan at Bolton. Sturridge looks set for a recall along with Didier Drogba, due to the start of a three-match ban for Fernando Torres following his red card against Swansea. Sturridge told Chelsea TV: "I enjoyed my time at Bolton and I have a lot of love for the players and a lot of love for the manager especially, because he gave me the opportunities to showcase what I can do and I don't think I would be in the position I am in now without going to Bolton and without the manager there showing faith in me. "He is a funny character and not just Owen but his staff also, they get involved in training every day and you see the manager scoring goals and celebrating and throwing remarks about. He knows how to motivate a team and he knows how to motivate individuals. "I can't speak highly enough of him and the way he likes to play his football." Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has dismissed the impact of Manchester United playing before his side in five of the next six Barclays Premier League weekends. The opening six rounds of top-flight fixtures saw the Blues kick-off before United on five occasions, the other match being the sides' Old Trafford encounter. That schedule arguably allowed Chelsea to put pressure on the champions but the roles will be reversed during the next two months, starting on Saturday when United host Norwich, with Villas-Boas' men at the Reebok Stadium 24 hours later. But Villas-Boas said: "You don't go 'six points behind'. You go 'six points behind having played one game less'. "Or maybe you go three points behind and you have a chance to equal the points." end

Match Report

Lampard shows his worth Frank Lampard underlined his importance to Chelsea with a hat-trick at the Reebok Stadium as the Blues closed the gap at the top of the Barclays Premier League by winning 5-1 on an afternoon to forget for Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan. With the hosts cutting through their opponents' defence at will, Lampard and Daniel Sturridge - scorer of eight goals in 12 games during a loan spell with Wanderers last season - both netted twice in the first half, two errors in quick succession by Bogdan allowing each player their second. Dedryck Boyata scored his first Bolton goal soon after the restart, but it counted for little as Lampard dispatched his third of the day in the 59th minute. It means the London side go back up to third in the table and are once again three points away from joint-leaders Manchester United and Manchester City. Bolton, meanwhile, stay rock bottom, with their losing streak in the league extending to six games. While Bogdan - in the Trotters team for the injured Jussi Jaaskelainen - endured a nightmare, it was a dream performance from Lampard, who followed up his midweek goal in the Champions League draw at Valencia in style and made it clear that after a recent spell on the bench, he still has plenty to offer. Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas also handed Didier Drogba a start, the Ivorian taking the place of the suspended Fernando Torres, while Sturridge returned as well having recovered from a knee problem. The hosts' line-up showed five changes from last weekend's 3-0 defeat at Arsenal, with Bogdan, Boyata, Gary Cahill, Ricardo Gardner and skipper Kevin Davies the men coming into the first XI. Bolton were looking for a positive result to lift them out of the relegation zone, but having been defeated the last eight times they had hosted Chelsea, the omens were not good and within two minutes, they were behind. Jose Bosingwa's cross was intercepted by Boyata to earn the Blues a corner and when Juan Mata swung it in, Sturridge rose unmarked to convert, the forward abruptly halting his celebration against his former club. Moments later Sturridge fired narrowly wide as the visitors threatened to run riot. At the other end, David Ngog skewed an effort high and wide, catching John Terry with his boot in the process, and Martin Petrov hit a free-kick into the wall after Raul Meireles had brought down Darren Pratley. It was not long before Chelsea were back on the attack, though, and on the quarter-hour mark it was 2-0 as Sturridge squared in the box for Lampard, who had the space to slot the ball past Bogdan. Almost immediately, Bogdan was called upon to stop Lampard scoring another and Mata then skied his attempt from Sturridge's cross. Bolton needed a response but were unable to make much of a couple of corners before two howlers in two minutes by Bogdan saw the game effectively end as a contest. First the young Hungarian let Sturridge's shot from the edge of the box loop in off him in the 25th minute when he should have saved. He then parried David Luiz's strike straight at the feet of Lampard, who tucked it away gleefully. The shell-shocked hosts managed to wrestle back some possession, but were unable to produce much going forward. Davies saw a shot deflect wide and the resulting corner came to nothing. The Wanderers captain and Cahill then got in each other's way while jumping to meet a free-kick, and after Bogdan's save from Mata had been greeted by ironic cheers, referee Peter Walton blew for half-time with boos ringing out around the stadium. Bolton manager Owen Coyle replaced Gretar Steinsson with Zat Knight at the interval and having started the second half positively, Wanderers pulled a goal back a minute in when Boyata nodded in Petrov's free-kick. The hosts did their utmost to sustain the pressure, but it took a great tackle by Knight to halt Drogba's progress and Ramires then shot over after Bogdan had made another mistake, flapping at a corner. Drogba flashed an effort across the face of goal and was the provider when Chelsea added to their lead soon after, laying the ball across the area for Lampard to sweep in. Bolton refused to give up and thought they had scored again when Davies prodded in Petrov's cross. But although replays appeared to show the ball had crossed the line before substitute Branislav Ivanovic's clearance, Walton ruled it was no goal. Sturridge then dragged a chance to complete his own treble wide before Wanderers substitute Chris Eagles saw his effort come back off the post.
