Chelsea smash four in tour match

Guangzhou Pharmaceutical 0-4 Chelsea

Luiz Felipe Scolari's Chelsea reign began with a comfortable win over Guangzhou Pharmaceutical as Salomon Kalou, Frank Lampard, Argentinian teenager Franco Di Santo and Shaun Wright-Phillips scored to secure the win over the Chinese Super League side.

The Blues dominated the opener of their five-game pre-season tour of Asia and Russia at Guangzhou Olympic Stadium, with the only concern for Scolari seeing summer signing Jose Bosingwa substituted after 20 minutes with a slight thigh injury after a brief but impressive debut at right-back.

Scolari fielded a strong side from the start, with Deco making his debut in midfield alongside Lampard, who played the entire game, with Joe Cole and Andriy Shevchenko not included in the squad due to minor injuries.

Lampard and Deco pulled shots wide in the opening minutes as Chelsea completely controlled the opening stages with the Portugal international dominating midfield and compatriot Bosingwa looking lively pushing forward from right-back.

Michael Essien also drilled a shot narrowly over the bar after 14 minutes.

The visitors were rewarded as they opened the scoring six minutes later when Mikel Jon Obi's defence-splitting through-ball caught the home side flat-footed, allowing Kalou to coast in unmarked to fire into the bottom corner across Guangzhou goalkeeper Li Shuai.

Guangzhou came into the game as the half progressed, to the delight of the passionate 35,000 crowd, but Chelsea's chances continued to come as Essien was denied from close range before the Ghanaian saw a snap shot from outside the area saved by Li.

As half-time approached, Nicolas Anelka hit the Guangzhou upright from inside the area, while at the other end Petr Cech turned a free-kick from Xu Liang onto the post.

Following five half-time changes, substitute Wayne Bridge saw his deflected shot hit the post before Lampard showed brilliant vision to double the lead by chipping Li from 30 yards, the Guangzhou 'keeper only just outside his six-yard area.

Half-time substitute Florent Malouda fired wide twice in quick succession before Di Santo, a second-half substitute, struck the upright after weaving his way through on the edge of the area.

With 12 minutes remaining Frenchman Malouda broke down the Guangzhou left and pulled a low cross across the face of the goal for a sliding Di Santo to net. Wright-Phillips sealed the win with a shot on the turn from inside the area in the closing minutes.
