Chelsea continued their march towards the Premier League title with a hard-fought victory over Stoke City.
The Blues had to work hard for the three points, Gary Cahill finally grabbing the winner in the 87th minute.
After holding Manchester City to a goalless draw recently, Mark Hughes’ men put in another resolute display.
Yet, they say that winning without playing to full potential is the mark of champions.
There can be no doubt as to who is behind that spirit. Whoever you support, you can’t help but find Antonio Conte’s love of the game infectious.
Take a look at how he celebrated Cahill’s goal:

Seriously, what a guy.
While Tottenham are yet to play this weekend – they face Southampton at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon – Chelsea are now 13 points ahead of their closest rivals.
It was the new-look Willian who got proceedings underway with a goal in the 13th minute, before a Jon Walters penalty levelled things up for Stoke.
Chelsea march on, however, and at this rate, they’re going to be confirmed as champions very early indeed.
