Stoke manager Mark Hughes was disappointed with his side's performance in their 3-0 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday evening.

Stoke remain in 10th position in the Premier League but missed the chance to close the gap on Newcastle above them as Mohamed Salah, Frank Lampard and Willian earned Chelsea a comfortable victory.

Having gone into the game on the back of three straight wins and only one defeat in nine, Hughes was disappointed his side did not make more of a game of it at Stamford Bridge.

"I was disappointed in what we produced," he said. "In recent weeks we've been a lot better than that.

"You have to come to places such as Stamford Bridge and make sure you put in a good performance as a team but we had too many who didn't hit their maximum today.

"In the end we weren't able to ask enough questions of a good Chelsea team

who, on the day, didn't really have to get out of second or third gear to take

the game away from us.

"We needed to make a better fist of it than we did. That's the disappointment

from our point of view."

Stoke host ninth-placed Newcastle at the Britannia Stadium in their next game.
