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

  12. 82

  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
