Chelsea have marched into the last 16 of the Carling Cup after thumping Portsmouth 4-0 at Fratton Park.Frank Lampard scored twice as Chelsea cruised into the fourth round of the Carling Cup and heaped more defensive misery on Portsmouth
Last year’s runners-up were led by a brace from Frank Lampard, while Florent Malouda and Salomon Kalou were also on the scoresheet.
The Blues fielded a strong line-up with Didier Drogba starting his first match of the season, and it was the Ivory Coast striker who created the visitors’ first chance when he fired a shot wide.

Chelsea continued to dominate for the rest of the half with Lampard playing through Kalou but the Dutchman sent his effort wide.

The Blues’ possession was rewarded on 36 minutes when Michael Ballack was tripped by Nadir Belhadj, with Lampard firing his spot-kick into the corner.

Pompey’s best chance of the half fell to Belhadj, who rifled a strike over the bar from Peter Crouch’ s knock-down.

On the stroke of half-time, Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side appeared to make the game safe when Kalou threaded the ball through to Malouda who lashed the ball past David James.
James, who conceded six goals on Sunday against Manchester City, was at fault for Chelsea’s third on 56 minutes when he failed to deal with Kalou’s cross, allowing Lampard to tap in his second.
Kalou was rewarded with a goal when he punished some woeful Pompey defending to slot in from 12 yards
