Finally a good Chelsea performance was rewarded with two full points. Chelsea deserved something on the weekend but took the full points last night with a quick, silky performance against a good Ipswich side. Ipswich started off well and gained an early goal. Chelsea kept up with them and surpassed them in creative play but could not put anything into the net in the first half.
