John Terry scored his first league goal of the season to help Chelsea beat Stoke 2-0 on Monday and restore their three-point lead atop the Premier League.

Terry put his side ahead in just the second minute with a powerful header from a corner, and Cesc Fabregas doubled the lead in the 78th to make sure Chelsea re-established the gap to second-place Manchester City.

In between, it was a feisty and physical game at the Britannia Stadium and Stoke's Phil Bardsley was lucky to escape with just a yellow card after a reckless tackle on Eden Hazard in the 20th minute.
