Chelsea are cruising at the top of the table and should have had another tennis score against a Stoke City side that were desperate not to get another 7-0 drubbing like the end of last season. They managed to hold Chelsea to just 2-0 but not because Chelsea were lacking in chances.
Malouda yet again (third match in a row) put Chelsea in front after half an hour, but Lampard should have put away his penalty after just 10 minutes of the game. In the second half Lampard was taken off so Drogba got a chance to take a penalty for a change and he made no mistake.
Kalou had a brilliant chance to make it three in the dying seconds but they will surely be happy with another three points and another clean sheet.
