Second-half latest: Chelsea 1 Stoke 0 – Blues edging towards win

first_imgChelsea remain on course for victory after at Stamford Bridge thanks to Bertrand Traore’s breathtaking first-half strike.Traore, playing up front because of a tendon injury to Diego Costa, turned sharply 25 yards from goal following a Nemanja Matic pass and crashed the ball in to the far corner from the edge of the box.Stoke came close to levelling soon after the restart when Marco Arnautovic tested Thibaut Courtois with a fierce shot from distance, while the Belgian keeper also saved well from Xherdan Shaqiri’s low strikeAt the other end the impressive Eden Hazard – on his 200th Blues appearance – fired an attempt across goal following a swift break by Willian.The only goal came with Chelsea well on top but Stoke had started brightly and created three good chances on the break.Courtois made a decent save from Ibrahim Afellay’s long-range strike and Mame Diouf twice wasted good shooting positions.But Chelsea started to threaten more regularly after the half-hour mark, mainly through the recalled Willian, who blasted an effort narrowly wide and also saw a shot blocked after a fine run by Hazard.The Blues and the Potters are both chasing a fourth consecutive Premier League victory. A Chelsea win would take them above Stoke in the table and could take them up to seventh place in the table.Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Baba, Ivanovic, Cahill; Matic, Mikel; Willian, Hazard (Loftus-Cheek 63), Oscar; Traore (Remy 68).Subs: Begovic, Miazga, Clarke-Salter, Fabregas, Pato.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
