Premier League: Chelsea vs. Stoke City
Chelsea will be aiming to return to the top of the Premier League as they host thirteenth placed Stoke City this afternoon.
The Blues find themselves trailing Manchester United by two points and if they are to stay in contention for the EPL title, they have to win this one. After their loss to Tottenham last week, doubts about them winning the much-coveted trophy emerged. Carlo Ancelotti’s side must play better than they played against the Spurs or their advantage over the Red Devils will vanish along with their hold on the title.
The West Londoners have already faced the Potters twice this season and both times they have won. First, at the Britannia Stadium in the EPL (2-1), and at the FA Cup quarter-final at Stamford Bridge last month (2-0).
The game starts at 16:00 GMT.
UPDATE: Salomon Kalou scored a hat-trick and Frank Lampard added two goals as the Blues beat Stoke 7-0 to stay a point ahead of Manchester United in the EPL title race.
