Runaway Premier League leaders Chelsea extended their incredible winning run to 13 on Saturday as they beat Mark Hughes’ Stoke City 4-2 at Stamford Bridge.
The first half was a keenly contested affair as Stoke stood toe to toe with their hosts. However, Chelsea took the lead in the 34th minute as Gary Cahill headed in from Cesc Fabregas’ corner. Bruno Martins Indi though, struck a scrappy goal at the onset of the second half to make it 1-1 just after the break.
Fast forward to the second half, and Willian struck a brace either side of Peter Crouch’s second equaliser for Stoke to restore Chelsea’s one goal lead.
And it was Chelsea’s in-form striker Diego Costa, making a return from suspension, who scored his 14th goal of the season with a fantastic finish from an acute angle to put the game to bed and make it 4-2 for the Blues.
