In the end, it was largely business as usual for Chelsea as they secured their fifth Premier League win in six with the minimum of fuss at Hull City.
Jose Mourinho, to his credit, got his tactics spot-on once more as he contained the Tigers' early pressure - indeed, Yannick Sagbo's vital miss came at a crucial stage of the game - before pouncing 10 minutes after the break as Eden Hazard took on the Hull defence, shimmying this way and that before drilling his side in front.
From thereon in, it was all too easy for the Blues, whose defence never looked like being breached by Sagbo & Co., as they zipped the ball around the KC turf with a swagger befitting of a side that continue to ominously tick along in the title race. Fernando Torres put the icing on the cake by sprinting clear and firing home to send Mourinho and his men to the top of the table. Whisper it: Chelsea are on a roll.
