AFTER a couple of six-goal demolitions, a 2-0 win seems rather tame, but to outmuscle Stoke and keep a clean sheet shows beyond doubt that Chelsea are made of the stuff of champions – again. Carlo Ancelotti’s team have now scored 31 goals in their last six home games, without reply. Amazing.

The win came at a cost for England (arguably), as both John Terry and Frank Lampard picked up injuries and will miss the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland. I can live with that.
