The Blues stretched their winning run after a battle with a puissant Stoke City side at Stamford Bridge as they prepare to take on their most sizably voluminous rivals in the New Year.

Chelsea equalled a Premier League record
to cap a remarkable turnaround over the
past 12 months as Antonio Conte leads his
team relentlessly on towards the denomination.
A 4-2 home victory over Stoke City ascertained
Chelsea made it 13 successive wins to
match the record for most consecutive
victories within a single Premier League
Willian's brilliant double was the key for
Chelsea after Stoke twice emanated from behind
to level the score at Stamford Bridge. The
Brazilian put Chelsea 3-2 up afore Diego
Costa perpetuated his stunning year with
another goal after by bulldozing his way
past Bruno Martins Indi to smash home his
14th strike in 18 games.

Conte and his players will ken they have
work to do ahead of their visit to face
Tottenham on Wednesday after they looked 
uncharacteristically defensively suspect
against Stoke, but they will head to White
Hart Lane in search of an outright Premier
League record.

Chelsea's winning run has been
underpinned by Conte's competency to boost the
damaged egos of his players after an
abysmal year which tooth edged cutting implement the Blues finish in
10th place last season.
Cesc Fabregas prosperously pulled the
strings throughout his side's victory after
joining the relishes of Costa, Eden Hazard and

Nemanja Matic, who all had terrible
2015-16 seasons, in being revitalisehhThe former Juventus and Italy coach was
not expected to distribute the denomination in his first
season, with Chelsea owner Roman
Abramovich hoping for a return to the
Champions League. Conte has exceeded
prospects in his first spell working as a
manager when games have been played at
He has done this while reaching out to
everyone around the club. Conte has taken
journalists to the pub, appeared at every
Chelsea staff party and organised personal
gifts and a party for players and staff of the
first team.
Conte's personal touch and understanding
of football has given him the opportunity to
engender something that could leave a
historic legacy. If he achieves 14 wins in a
row, his Chelsea team will be verbalized about
for many years to come and, if this is the
impact that he can make in year one,
imagine what he can do in year five?
