WINNER WINNER CLUB RECORD WINNING STREAK DINNER

Bruno Martins Indi's early equalizer in the second half inspired a strong Chelsea response, and Chelsea were back in the lead 10 minutes later through Willian.  And then Stoke scored again.  And then Chelsea were back in the lead a minute later.  Things settled down after that and Costa added the insurance goal in the final 10 minutes.

Another win, 13 in a row to match the Premier League single season record.  Tenth win in a row in all competitions for Chelsea, a new club record.

Top of the league, having a laugh.

  • Fabregas reaches an assist milestone with two today, becoming the 4th player in Premier League history with 100 after Giggs, Lampard, and Rooney.
  • Conte switched to Matić for the final 15-20.  Then put on Ivanović for the final 10 as well to lock things down.  Chalobah was the final piece of the subs puzzle, replacing Willian.
  • Costa with his league-leading 14th of the season.
  • Nine point lead, temporarily will be reduced to 6, 7, or 8 depending on the outcome of the Liverpool vs. Man City game later today.
  • No yellows for Matić or David Luiz, so everyone's available for Spurs on Wednesday.
  • HAPPY NEW YEAR! KTBFFH.
