Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti claimed his side were playing "PlayStation football" after the defending Premier League champions humiliated Wigan at the DW Stadium to register their second 6-0 victory of the season.

Florent Malouda opened the scoring before Nicolas Anelka and Salomon Kalou both bagged a brace and new-signing Yossi Benayoun completed the rout against a side Chelsea smashed eight past at the end of last term.

In their last five Premier League games Chelsea have scored 29 goals without reply, but Ancelotti warned that the Blues' hot streak would come to an end.

"It is impossible to think we are always going to score six goals in a game, this is not real football, this is PlayStation," Ancelotti said.

"I think we are trying to play the same football that we played last year. Obviously we wanted to win the game and to play well and we did both. We won two games, played good football and scored a lot of goals but we are focused to play good football."

Ancelotti admitted the scoreline flattered his side a little after tough opening to the match.

"The first half was tough. Wigan played good football, put pressure on us, and we were not able to play our football as there was no space.

"But we defended well, didn't give them opportunities and we waited to score, which is important because in football you have to defend and attack.

"Our best quality is we are able to counter attack fantastically well, strike fast and with ability. When we have space it is difficult for the opponent to control us."
