LB) Cesar Azpilicueta – 7
Excellent performance from the Spaniard, who kept Stoke’s attacking options quiet and was often the man winning the ball back for the Blues.
CB) Gary Cahill – 8
Arguably one of his best performances so far this season, stepped up against a physical Stoke defence and really limited their chance.
CB) John Terry – 8
Equally excellent at the heart of the Chelsea defence, while he also popped up with the crucial headed goal in the first half.
