Chelsea's win lifts them 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League with rivals Tottenham and Manchester City yet to play, and Conte - who celebrated deliriously with the travelling supporters at the final whistle - admitted that it meant more than most.

Willian opened the scoring for the league-leaders with a first half free-kick, but Jonathan Walters responded before the break by converting a penalty after Gary Cahill had fouled Walters.

Stoke's misery was compounded when Phil Bardsley was shown a second yellow for catching the Spaniard late in the final seconds.
