Begovic

Conceded two goals to Schurrle while saves made were all fairly routine.

Cameron

Only Nzonzi had more touches of the ball in the Stoke team. Helped maintain team shape.

0 5.7 7

Shawcross

Twisted inside and out by Schurrle for first goal. Tussled with Ba and could have conceded penalty.

Wilson

Crucial first-half tackle on halfway line to deny rampaging Ramires. Steady showing.

Muniesa

Linked up well with Arnautovic on occasions but found Chelsea hard to contain.

N'Zonzi

Not as spectacular as Schurrle, but was the fulcrum of Stoke's victory. Intelligent use of the ball.

Whelan Off '86

Impressive passing accuracy and contested midfield battle well.

Walters Off '84

Won 11 aerial duels over the course of 90 minutes & claimed assist for Ireland's goal.

Adam Off '18

Limped off injured, having unfortunately blocked Whelan's effort with his face.

Arnautovic

Worked hard down the left with plenty of crosses and claimed an assist for Crouch's equaliser.

Crouch

Kept his head to slot home equaliser and teed up Ireland for great chance in second half.

Palacios On '86

Helped Stoke see out the game in the closing stages.

Assaidi On '84

Only on for last few minutes but winning goal was a sensational strike.

Ireland On '18

Curled home a beautiful goal early in the second half, although he missed a sitter later on.

Cech

Schoolboy error to come for late first-half corner. Looked shaky all afternoon.

-1 4.2 5

Ivanovic

Lost at sea when Assaidi nipped in behind him before hitting the winner. Awful shot on goal in first half.

-1 5.2 6

Cahill

Failed to make a tackle over 90 minutes and positioning was highly questionable.

-1 5.0 5

Terry

A birthday to forget. Communication with Cech appeared to be a problem for the Blues.

-2 5.3 6

Azpilicueta

Was arguably fouled in the build-up to Ireland's goal. Stuck to his task diligently.

-1 5.5 7

Ramires

Wasted several good first-half opportunities and didn't offer defence much protection.

2 4.8 6
5
Mikel Off '70

Claimed an assist for Schurrle's goal and like the German, was perhaps wrongly withdrawn in hindsight.

5 5.8 7

Schurrle Off '70

Two expertly-taken goals - should Mourinho have kept him on the pitch for the last 20 minutes?

12 7.9 9

Mata

Pulled the strings in attack in tandem with Hazard and Schurrle. One of the Blues' better players.

2 6.5 7

Hazard

Like Schurrle, a constant threat to Stoke and was the Blues' most accurate passer of the ball.

2 6.6 8

Torres Off '59

Approach play was decent in hour-long outing but didn't get into good positions.

2 5.5 6

Lampard On '70

Saved back for midweek by Mourinho and didn't offer much in last 20 minutes.

1 5.5 6

Ba On '59

Had good penalty appeal turned down in second half but gave away three fouls.

1 5.0 6

Eto'o On '70

Changes didn't help Chelsea, and Eto'o fired wide from a good opportunity.
