Chelsea Retain Unofficial World Club Championship in Style

Barney Corkhill@@BarneyCorkhillSenior Writer ISeptember 24, 2008

Barney Corkhill's Unofficial World Club Championship (UWCC) saw its first match tonight, as holders Chelsea took on Portsmouth.

Chelsea retained their crown in style.

A 4-0 win over Pompey continued Chelsea's fantastic start to the season, and continued Portsmouth's defensive woes. Despite having David James in goal, Portsmouth have now conceded 10 goals in their last two games.

Portsmouth have the worst goal difference in the league even at this early stage, after losing 6-0 to Manchester City, who crashed out to lowly Brighton tonight.

It's the second time this season that Portsmouth have been hit for four by Chelsea, with the first coming on the opening day of the season.

It was a Frank Lampard brace, a Florent Malouda goal and a Salomon Kalou goal that did the damage tonight, as Chelsea retained their status as Unofficial Club World Champions.

 

History

Chelsea 4-0 Portsmouth

 

Chelsea's next title defence comes against Stoke this coming Saturday. Could Stoke shock the world and become (unofficially) the best club side in the world?!
