In what felt like a crucial victory for Antonio Conte’s side as they beat Stoke 2-1 away from home.
Willian opened the scoring for the Blues with a brilliantly taken free-kick that beat Lee Grant at his near post.
The Brazilian caught the Stoke keeper off guard as he curled the ball into the bottom corner from a tight angle.
Gary Cahill gave Stoke the chance to level the scoring before half-time when he appeared to push Jonathan Walters inside the box.
Despite it appearing to be a light decision, referee Anthony Taylor awarded a penalty and the forward went on to dispatch the penalty, levelling the scoring.
Cahill found himself in the heart of the action once again late on in the game, smashing the ball into the roof of the net from a late corner.
The goal sparked mass celebrations among the Chelsea staff and players and this is how they reacted to the win on social media.
