And so the dream story continues. After yet another thumping and emphatic victory, Chelsea have now smashed in 20 goals in their last 3 Premier League games.
It is always worth pointing out that these have all come against Wigan and West Brom, but at the end of the day their is no need to dress down what has been an impressive masterclass in attacking football.
As with the first game of the season it was a slow first half, with Wigan even on top for periods, yet it cannot help but be impressive when Chelsea maul teams in as unflinching a manner as was evident on Saturday evening.

More impressive still is the ability for everybody to play their roles so superbly. For those with good memories, this was something I pointed out was key to our successful campaign last season.
Drogba failed to wear his goal scoring boots, but still managed to assist half of the goals against our northern opponents.
Rebel du jour Anelka opened his account and ended the day with a double.
Kalou and Benayoun came off the bench to knock in a combined 3 goals.
And Florent Malouda continued his impeccable form and notching himself a goal adding to his opening day brace.
Malouda's opener showed exactly why Chelsea, when on form, have plenty to frighten opponents. The sheer volume of players in an around Wigan's box was frightening.
With Drogba and Anelka loitering, accompanied by Malouda and Lampard in advanced positions. Surely a front line even the tightest of defences would struggle to contain.
It was a blue wave which showed little sign of receding even up until the 90th minute - after which two of our goals were scored.
Another frightener for opponents is that last season the success was without Essien. With him in the starting XI it is as if Chelsea have their engine back. He simply doesn't put a foot wrong, unless sometimes it is accidentally half way up an opposing player's leg (sorry Didi Hamaan!).
Credit due to Jon Obi Mikel too when he also got in on the act.
As readers may well be aware I am one of his critics, but I was a surprised as a celebrating John Terry (who grabbed JMO and pointed him out to the bench) when Mikel's superb switched pass to Anelka allowed the Frenchman to strike the ball past a stationary Kirkland - the second England international to concede 6 against us in two weeks.
I paid special care to Mikel's game this weekend, with an open mind, just in case my opinion was blinkered. And even though he didn't play a bad game there were still worrying parts of his play that are a cause for concern.
His urgency is virtually non existent, I beg of anyone who is upset by my criticism of him to compare what happens when he gets the ball and what happens when Essien gets it.
Essien is a much quicker thinker, his awareness of his surroundings is perfect, whereas Mikel needs a touch and breathing time before the next pass comes.
I still think he is worthy backup but think that Ancelotti may well be, and in my mind correctly, planning to move Essien into that more defensive role once Ramires is fit enough to occupy the central midfield position.
It is also worth remembering the input of the defence. It was incredible to see Alex make two exceptional blocks in the box when we were comfortably winning 3-0.
It is refreshing to know that the players you loyally support give so much to the cause too.
Alex,for me, is the sole reason why we don't need to replace Carvalho. I think he was always destined to make that position his own, and was surprised to see him excluded from the Brazil selecao in the summer.
Unfortunately with the great start to the season comes the devastating news that Chelsea youngster Sam Hutchinson has had to retire from the game at 21. Just on the brink of possibly making a career at the club, or even just finding his way in football, his career has been cruelly cut short. It's a terrible shame, but it has been great to see the club's response in making sure his future will still be in football.
Keep The Blue Flag Flying High!
