  • Hazard looking to play for the corner as the clock winds down on the hapless Walters and Stoke . For Chelsea, it's back to winning ways, but whether it will help Benitez win over the club's fans is the question.

  • Jerome looks to latch on to loose ball in the area, but the cover defence clears the danger.

  • Kightly trying to make a late impression with a decent run and cross from the right, but the replacement winger's delivery is just too deep and over Jerome.

  • And things go from bad to worse for Walters as he skies his spot-kick straight down the middle and over the crossbar.

  • Mariner points to spot for Stoke after Terry is adjudged to have tripped up Walters.

  • Cech making light work of a Hail Mary ball forward from the Potters to no one in particular.

  • With the game altogether done and dusted, Luiz is pushing up in attack more and more and trying to slot in where he can.

  • Matthew Etherington makes way for Stoke for Michael Kightly to get a run out in the dying stages of the match.

  • The home supporters have clearly seen enough as they head for the exits in their droves.

  • Easy does it for Chelsea as Cech directs traffic from the back and Terry eases his way back into the fold.

  • Azipilicueta departs for Paulo Ferreira to make his first appearance for the Blues since last season.

  • Whelan curls in a cross-cum-shot from the right that fails to trouble Cech.

  • The Potters on the ball but it's probably too little, too late.

  • As the match enters the final ten minutes, the pace has significantly slowed.

  • Adam and Jones come off for Dean Whitehead and Cameron Jerome respectively, while the travelling fans break into song at the arrival of John Terry for Mata.

  • A lot of movement on the touchlines as both sets of managers look to make changes.

  • No trouble from Stoke's front line now as Pulis's attackers look out on their feet and out of ideas.

  • Chelsea passing the ball around the middle of the park and forcing Stoke to chase shadows.

  • Blues look in full control of the match with every touch of ball of simple ease and composure.

  • Adam with a left-footed effort on goal from the right that Cech ushers out of touch, though it was pretty close to top corner.
