West Ham made the trip down the District Line to Chelsea, hoping to do the double over their London rivals. They had recorded a 3-1 win over the Blues in Rafa Benitez's third game in charge back in December 2012, despite the Spaniard's promise to get the team winning.

The Hammers were to be disappointed as their former player Frank Lampard headed home his 200th Chelsea goal from an Eden Hazard cross. It was the Belgian who stole the show in a man-of-the-match performance that was capped by a goal of his own in the second half.

Having received a pass from Juan Mata similar to his own earlier effort for Lampard, Hazard jinked across the face of goal before firing a left-footed shot back into the far corner.

Demba Ba squandered several chances to turn a comfortable win into a rout. and West Ham were furious to have an Andy Carroll goal ruled out for a foul on David Luiz. Chelsea finish the weekend back in third place, while West Ham will be casting their eyes down the table and hoping to stay out of reach of relegation.

Here are six things we learned from a confident Chelsea win.
