    Hazard looking to play for the corner as the clock winds down on the hapless Walters and Stoke . For Chelsea, it's back to winning ways, but whether it will help Benitez win over the club's fans is the question.

  2. 92

    Jerome looks to latch on to loose ball in the area, but the cover defence clears the danger.

  12. 82

  14. 80

  16. 78

    A lot of movement on the touchlines as both sets of managers look to make changes.

  17. 77

    No trouble from Stoke's front line now as Pulis's attackers look out on their feet and out of ideas.

  18. 76

    Chelsea passing the ball around the middle of the park and forcing Stoke to chase shadows.

  19. 75

    Blues look in full control of the match with every touch of ball of simple ease and composure.

  20. 74

    Adam with a left-footed effort on goal from the right that Cech ushers out of touch, though it was pretty close to top corner.
