Had virtually nothing to do but assured when called upon.
Coped easily with Odemwingie and always happy to receive possession on the left.
Never looked in trouble. Read the game well and comfortable on the ball.
Composed display from the centre-back and dealt well with the awkward threat of Crouch.
Unlucky that he was just offside when he scored a bullet header in the first half. Solid defensively and joined attacks impressively.
Neat and tidy passing in central midfield and slipped in some nice passes to team-mates. Scored Chelsea's second on the rebound after his initial penalty was saved by Begovic.
Dominated the game in central midfield with his anticipation, power and accurate forward passing in to Chelsea's creative players. Set up Salah's opener with a strong run and cut-back.
Scored just his second goal for Chelsea with a well-placed finish with his left foot in the 32nd minute. Offered width and his speed troubled Stoke.
Excellent display from the Brazilian as he buzzed in between the lines with skill and creativity throughout and scored a well-deserved goal with a delightful finish from 25 yards. Worked very hard to press Stoke players without the ball.
Had the opportunities to show Mourinho why he should have played in Spaniard - but he fluffed his lines. Never looked a danger.
The German's speed and movement caused Chelsea problems but he didn't look comfortable after going down under a challenge from Adam early in the second half. Replaced by Hazard in the 59th minute.
Some wonderful saves from the Bosnian, including a penalty save and a wonderful stop to deny Torres from point-blank range. Didn't deserve to concede three goals.
Never looked comfortable up against the trickery of Schurrle and Willian in the first half and was replaced by Wilkinson at the break.
Some decent last-ditch interventions but couldn't cope with Chelsea's movement and backed off in the build-up to Willian's goal.
Strong in the air against Torres but made some poor decisions, most notably chesting the ball down straight to Torres in the first half.
Decent enough display by the left-back up against Salah, although he was nowhere to be seen for the opener.
The Frenchman was impressive in his level of athleticism and skill and one of the only Stoke players who looked like he might cause Chelsea problems.
Worked fairly hard but a peripheral figure for the majority of the game in the Stoke midfield and struggled defensively.
Sat in front of the back four but didn't offer enough protection for the defence before being replaced at half-time.
Played out on the right and was on the periphery of the game throughout the afternoon.
A couple of decent moments but his touch let him down when he would have been through on goal in the second half.
Hard to judge the gangly striker's display as he was so isolated during the game.
Strong display in central midfield after replacing Lampard. Perhaps lucky after appearing to jump in studs first on Pieters.
Played on the left side of midfield after coming on for Willian in the 78th minute.
Came on for Schurrle and his first involvement was to play the ball to Salah for the penalty. Excellent balance and technique, as always.
