Chelsea star Andre Schurrle posted a picture following the Blues 3-0 victory over Stoke City on Saturday.

Chelsea returned to the top of the Premier League table on Saturday following their 3-0 victory over Stoke City at Stamford Bridge.

And while Blues' boss Jose Mourinho may feel the current table is "fake" with the sides around them having games-in-hand, the simple fact is Chelsea did what they needed to in order to remain in touch with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

Andre Schurrle may not have got on the score-sheet against the Potters, but he still played his part prior to making way for Eden Hazard just before the hour-mark.

And after the match the German took to Instagram to post a picture and a message for his followers.

In what is becoming the somewhat worrying craze of footballer selfies, Schurrle posed with David Luiz and Willian, before writing, 'Well done today.  With my Brazilian brothers.'

It is clear the feeling in the Chelsea dressing room is a happy one. But when the cameras and mobiles are away you can be sure those same players know they have a chance of ending the season on a high before they head to the World Cup in Brazil, and the seriousness returns to the faces of the men who know just how close they are to a trophy.
