New Delhi: Chelsea maintained their awesome progress, winning a 10th successive Premier League game with a 1-0 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday that saw them forge six points clear at the top of the table.

Cesc Fabregas scored the game`s only goal after a fine counter-attack five minutes before halftime to provide an entirely predictable outcome to the tussle between the league`s top and bottom clubs.

There had not been much between the teams until Chelsea, who had to leave the injured Eden Hazard at home, struck with a fast break that ended with Fabregas netting sharply after a neat one-two with Willian.

The Brazilian Willian, who replaced Hazard, saw a deflected shot hit the bar after the break as Chelsea largely dominated and left David Moyes` side still a point adrift at the foot of the table.
