Chelsea earns Villas-Boas relieving win vs Bolton

STEVE DOUGLAS AP Sports Writer Published:

LONDON (AP) -- Chelsea ended a miserable run of five straight winless games by beating Bolton 3-0 in the English Premier League on Saturday, easing some pressure on under-fire manager Andre Villas Boas.

England midfielder Frank Lampard inspired Chelsea on his recall to the team, completing the scoring with a late volley to become the first player to net at least 10 Premier League goals in nine successive seasons.

David Luiz and Didier Drogba earlier scored after a goalless first half, lifting the London club provisionally into fourth place.

Sixth-place Newcastle squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Wolverhampton Wanderers, which climbed out of the relegation zone to be replaced by Queens Park Rangers, a 1-0 loser at home to Fulham.
