    SYNOPSIS: Chelsea players came out onto the pitch of their home ground of Stanford Bridge in london on Monday for the start of their Boxing Day football match against Ipswich. Chelsea's defence was threatened before the match when they ran out of goalkeepers. Both Bonetti and Phillips were injured and their third team goalkeeper couldn't get to the ground in time. So Chelsea pressed David Webb into service. Webb normally a centre-back, was playing his first full match in the position. In the second half, Ipswich were playing left to right.

    Ipswich's attacks were knocked back--they couldn't break through the London team.

    Then Chelsea blasted through for their first goal of the match.

    An Osgood pass--and Chelsea's Chris Garland whipped the bell in fora second goal. Garland's a now addition to the London squad.

    Garland' score wrapped it up--leaving Chelsea the winners by two to Ipswich's nil.
