Part 1: Stoke City Review
Chelsea 2-1 Stoke City, Premier League
Saturday, March 17th | bet365 Stadium
- How did Chelsea's attack survive without a resurgent Eden Hazard? Willian, Pedro, and Costa were tasked with leading the attack against Stoke's rugby-esque backline.
- How did Diego Costa handle the relentless battering that Shawcross, Matins Indi, Pieters, and Bardsley gave him? Did we see signs of the old Diego or does he deserve credit for lasting the full 90 minutes after receiving an early yellow?
- For the first time in a long time Chelsea ended that match with a different backline formation than how they started. Did you think Chelsea’s back four looked comfortable and why do you think Conte went with Loftus-Cheek who somewhat forced the formation change instead of someone else who would have fit better?
Who was the LIB Man of the Match?
