Head coach Carlo Ancelotti was ecstatic after seeing his Chelsea side grab a late winner in their 2-1 victory at Stoke City.
Florent Malouda's goal made it five wins out of five for the Blues in the Premier League, as Ancelotti continues to enjoy a superb start to his Stamford Bridge reign.
The Italian said after the latest success: "We got what we deserved because we tried to attack all the time. I am very happy because it was a difficult game.
"We maintained good control throughout the match and that was important. We applied a lot of pressure and were rewarded for our play.
"We know all about Stoke and were not surprised by the way they play. We were ready for a physical match and knew how to deal with the long ball.
"A victory is always welcome and this is a very important period for us as we now have the Champions League ahead.
"To be top of the league is very important. We have good confidence in our play and a very good atmosphere in the dressing room.
"We are doing very well and want to continue in this good position for as long as we can. We have a very good squad."
