Stoke 9 (5 on target)
Chelsea 11 (7 on target)
Andre Marriner (W Mids) 6
YELLOW – Stoke: Wilkinson (foul, 38); Chelsea: None. RED – Stoke: None; Chelsea: None.
BEGOVIC: Some vital saves, particularly with his feet, when the game was still a contest 8
CAMERON: Excellent tackling and general defensive work for the first hour 7
WILKINSON: Gung-ho hardly describes it as he caught the mood of the first half with blood and thunder contribution 7
SHAWCROSS: Produced plenty of crucial interceptions and clearances to halt Chelsea in a tight first half 7
HUTH: Rarely found wanting for the first hour before events took their toll on everyone in a red and white shirt 7
WALTERS: You could say something of an off day for the hard-working forward after frequently being caught in the wrong place at the wrong time to help Chelsea on their way to victory 6
WHELAN: Yet another to look far better in the first hour than the last half-hour 6
NZONZI: One terrific effort on goal and a couple of jinking runs that promised far better than an eventual 4-0 home defeat 7
ETHERINGTON: Plenty of verve down that left and only inches away from winning a penalty – but was flagged offside – when the score was 1-0 7
ADAM: More glimpses than usual of the old Adam before the course of the game eventually consumed him and his team-mates 6
JONES: Close with one early chance before his influence gradually subsided as the match progressed 6
JEROME (for Jones, 79): Played in Walters to win that late penalty 6
WHITEHEAD (for Adam, 79): Fresh legs in the closing stages, but the match had long gone by the time he was introduced 6
KIGHTLY (for Etherington, 87): Another set of lungs in a losing cause 6
Not used: Sorensen, Upson, Crouch, Shotton.
CHELSEA: Cech, Azpilicueta (Ferreira, 83), Cole, Ivanovic, Luiz, Hazard, Lampard, Ramires, Bertrand, Mata (Terry, 80), Ba (Torres, 71). Subs not used: Turnbull, Oscar, Marin, Ake.
