Chelsea defender David Luiz: "We’re happy with the victory" over Stoke.

Chelsea defender David Luiz expressed his delight after the Premier League leaders beat Stoke City on Saturday.

Willian broke the deadlock in the 11th minute at the bet365 stadium but Jonathan Walters responded for the Potters 25 minutes later from the penalty spot.

However, the Blues skipper Gary Cahill scored the winner with a close range strike late on in the game as the west London side continued their fine form.

‘It was a typical Premier League game, we’re happy with the victory but it’s still a long way to win the title,’ Luiz said as reported. ‘Nobody makes it easy, always it is difficult to play here. They are a strong and physical team.

‘We are happy with the game - it is always difficult but we played a good game, kept calm and had the opportunity to score the second goal. We had to believe. It was so difficult but it did so we are happy.’

On the Brazilan's form, the 29-year-old said: ‘I try to improve every day. This is my goal. ‘Everybody can see my football, the team is doing very well. The results are coming.

‘As a defender they don’t talk about the good things you do, they talk about the mistakes, so I am trying to play the best football I can to help my team. Sometimes you have to give them more security, defend to get a positive result. It’s important to understand my role in the team [but] it’s not just me, it’s Diego, Hazard, everybody. Everybody understands what they need to do.’
