Whelan: Missed opportunity
Glenn Whelan believes Stoke should count themselves unlucky they were not able to claim all three points against Chelsea.
The Potters took the lead with a fine individual goal from Jon Walters before Didier Drogba's bullet header salvaged a point.
Stoke created more chances during the game but unfortunately they were unable to grab the killer second that would have crowned a memorable win.
Tony Pulis' team currently occupy tenth place and have 38 points but Whelan wants them to reach the 40-point mark as soon as possible.
"Chelsea put us under a lot of pressure but if you look at the second half we had more chances and were unlucky not to get three points," said Whelan.
"If you are disappointed not to get three points against Chelsea you know you are doing okay.
"We've got 38 points now but we'll try to get as many as we can and take each game as it comes."
