Chelsea welcomed defending champions Leicester City to the Bridge on Saturday and ran out comfortable winners with a 3-0 margin as the Blues continue their return to form.
Red-Hot Diego Costa put the Blues ahead with Eden Hazard doubling their lead before the break. Nigerian internional Victor Moses added a third in the 80th minute of the game.
It was a game where Chelsea totally dominated in the first-half with defensive lapses evident among the reigning champions.
The second half was better with end-to-end football as the Foxes tried to find their way back into the game.

Eden Hazard was able to get on the score sheet after Robert Huth and his partner Luis Hernandez failed to deal with a Matic pass with Pedro teeing up the assist for the Blegian to round Schmeichel for a finish.
Former Fox Kante had a chance to grab one against his former side but his shot was deflected off by Morgan.
Moses would grab a third for the club after brilliant passing between him and Nathaniel Chalobah seperated the red sea of Foxes found him facing goal with the Nigerian passing the ball into the net through Schmeichel.
Leicester City would be facing enormous pressure after becoming the first top-flight champions to lose their opening four away games of the season since Blackburn. It is worrying how a team so solid at the back last season looks total shambles.
The Foxes would be looking to pounce back with Crystal Palace, West Brom, Watford, and Middlesborough looking to follow.
