Chelsea Vs Stoke City : Match Preview And Predictions


Chelsea at Stanford Bridge  will host Stoke City in the last game of 2016,hoping to end the year with 13 Game unbeaten .
Chelsea will have more security, if their plan of 13 successive win materialize as the two teams Liverpool and Manchester City directly below them will be going head to head, increasing their chances of a potential Premier League Trophy.
Diego Costa and N, golo Kante will be back after serving their one match ban while last game hero Pedro Rodriguez will also be serving his one match ban as he took his fifth booking in Chelsea's last fixture.

Stoke City has no win against Chelsea since 1995 in all competitions and in Premier League since 1974 but will be hopeful as they were able to pick a point at Stanford Bridge last season. Marko Arnautovic is suspended while Phil Bardsley might feature after six weeks absence due to Knee injury.
Joe Allen is their highest goal score with five goals as a Midfielder which lays much emphasis on the state of the strikers, the last match Peter Crouch was total off, and has failed to score in 21 League appearances and his last back in 2014/2015 6-1 win against Liverpool.

The Stoke Boss Mark Hughes is positive and feels his team can make a mark at Stanford Bridge.
"The run they are on at the moment is absolutely outstanding, but that run will come to an end at some point.
"We're going into it with the intention of stopping the run if we can - and why can't it be us?
"We went there last year and got our first point at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, which proves we have good talent in our team."

While the Chelsea boss first addresses the Arsene Wenger's statement earlier today saying, he is please with the new perspective people see his team.
"At the start of the season, not one coach, not one person, not one journalist trusted in this team to fight for the title in this league this season.
"To have 12 wins in a row is a great achievement, but it's not enough to win the league at this point of the season.
"I'm pleased that the opinion is changing. I'm [also] a bit worried because, when the opinion changes quickly, you must pay attention."
Predictions
Stoke City won't have a chance against Chelsea's massive attack, with their key players Kante and Costa back, it will be hard for them, hence in my opinion
CHELSEA 3-0 STOKE CITY
