    Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on for Charlie Adam for Stoke. Can he turn this around?

    (obviously the answer is no)

    Chelsea 4-0 Stoke

    Ah man, there's nothing to tell you. Stoke striker Mame Biram Diouf crosses straight to Thibaut Courtois. That's about it.

  10. Post update

    Chelsea 4-0 Stoke

    Willian shows off some skills to beat Charlie Adam, who appears to have injured himself in the process. Showboat o'clock.

  11. Willian - one of Chelsea's best

    Matthew Upson

    Former England defender on Final Score

    I think Willian's been one of Chelsea's best today - but seeing Eden Hazard drop to the bench today - to be able to bring in Willian and Pedro is pretty good.

    Willian deserves to be in the starting XI every week, but it's difficult for Antonio Conte with all the options he has in attack.

  12. GOAL - Chelsea 4-0 Stoke


    Jack Butland goes to his left, but Willian plays it down the middle. Chelsea had to wait 50 minutes for that fourth goal.

  17. Worried about Stoke

    Chelsea 3-0 Stoke City

    Matthew Upson

    Former England defender on Final Score

    I'm worried about Stoke this season, they aren't too far from dropping into the bottom three and they've been stagnant for some time now. This result will do nothing for the squad's confidence levels, which are already dangerously low.

    Mark Hughes

    Chelsea 3-0 Stoke

    With their next game against Arsenal in mind, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte brings off N'Golo Kante and replaces him with Tiemoue Bakayoko.

  19. Post update

    Chelsea 3-0 Stoke

    There really isn't much to tell you, both sides playing in second gear really. Stoke are probably happy enough to not get a proper thrashing after that start.
