Bolton boss Megson finds positives in Chelsea thrashing

Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson insists there's no shame in the manner of their 4-0 defeat to Chelsea.

It was the second time in days they had been thumped by the Premiership leaders, but Megson insisted there was plenty of positives to draw.

He said: "We may have been beaten 4-0, but we were terrific. We matched them in their diamond midfield formation, we didn't struggle against it.

"But where as they had Lampard, we had Chris Basham; where they had Michael Ballack we had Tamir Cohen and where they had Deco we had Fabrice Muamba. And Chung Yong Lee was up against Michael Essien.

"You pay big money for that quality, but we worked really hard man-for-man against all four of those players."
