Chelsea have the lead against Stoke, and it only took the Blues a couple of minutes.
Antonio Rudiger got a running jump at the ball and headed them into the lead with a towering header.
With Eden Hazard rested it was vital for the Blues to find a goal early, and now they can sit a little deeper and use the pace of Pedro and Willian on the counter.
