Referee:

Stoke had no answer to the title challengers this afternoon as they were put to the sword by 7-0 at Stamford Bridge.

It may have been a match reminiscent of the 7-1 thrashing they gave Villa last month, but Stoke can point to some bad luck after Abdoulaye was forced off after just 8 minutes and had to be replaced by Ryan Shawcross and then Thomas Sorensen had to be stretchered off after conceded Kalou's second goal of the afternoon with a suspected broken elbow.

As you'd expect, chances for the Potters were few and far between, but we can look upon this defeat as an aberration on what has been a good season. We had been unbeaten away this year before this game and had only conceded 16 goals away all season so the scale of the defeat was really a surprise.

So not many positives out of this game and it also included another tantrum from a subbed striker as Dave Kitson was replaced by Tuncay and followed his lead by storming off down the tunnel.

Star Player

Only bright points in a dire game from a Stoke perspective came from Ricardo Fuller, who created several opportunities with good runs into the penalty area

Well.. I'll just say that you weren't that lucky, fellas. Hope Sorenson's okay, it looked a pretty nasty injury. All the very best!

sad to hear Sorenson will miss the World Cup - hope he makes a quick recovery!
