Chelsea returned to winning ways in the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over Bolton on Saturday afternoon.
It was the home side who continued to dominate possession in the early stages without ever really threatening to open the scoring. Sturridge remained their biggest threat, coming close twice late in the half, but Bolton held on.
The home side did not have to wait long in the second period to open the scoring, however, and it came just two minutes into the half when David Luiz produced a fine finish into the bottom corner.
Chelsea twice struck the woodwork in quick succession through Luiz and Drogba as they attempted to extend their lead, with Bolton struggling to stem the flow.
The home side did eventually find a second after 61 minutes, when Drogba headed home a Frank Lampard corner.
Lampard got in on the act after 79 minutes, adding Chelsea's third of the afternoon after good work from Juan Mata.
Chances were few and far between for Bolton on a difficult afternoon for Owen Coyle's side, with a late Gretar Steinsson effort their best chance of the match.
Chelsea will look to continue their winning run when they travel to West Brom next Saturday, while Bolton travel to Manchester City.
