A team in form, solid form.

It was a hard-fought day for Chelsea at the Britannia Stadium, with the Blues posting a 2-0 win over Stoke City.

It seems that Chelsea have finally found the missing piece to their jigsaw puzzle.

The additions of Diego Costa and Cesc Fàbregas have been an instant hit.

And when it’s going well for the Premiership pacesetters, it’s going great. Chelsea’s John Terry scored a header above the pillarlike Stoke players.

Good way to stop the leaders, Potters.

Diego Costa -- an exact opposite of Fernando Torres, according to Blues fans -- blew a bunny with a glorious one-on-one opportunity.

We're all human, Diego. We're just not all paid as well as you are.

However, to Chelsea’s surprise, this match waso't a regular stroll in the park. Stoke were like a terrier on a postman's butt. It took a while, but Chelsea finally gained some breathing room when its slender one-goal lead was doubled by Fàbregas, the Blues' very own assist machine.

Ingemar Stenmark couldn't slalom any better.

Lucky? Maybe. Brilliant? Yes.

Chelsea thus remain on top. Hailed by some as the loudest venue in the Premiership, Britannia Stadium had its voice dampened by the Blues' performance.

That’s an another way to do it.
