Welcome to The Independent's coverage of today's Premier League encounter between Stoke City vs Chelsea.

  • Preview: Stoke City vs Chelsea
  • Chelsea will be without Jose Mourinho who is serving a one-match stadium ban for his behaviour during last month's defeat to West Ham United
  • The Potters have taken fewer shots than their opponents in all but one of their Premier League matches so far; the worst record of any side this season.
  • Peter Crouch recently complained about being under-used by Stoke, but if Mark Hughes has picked up on Chelsea's aerial vulnerabilities then he will surely throw his towering striker on here. 
  • The Blues' defence has already conceded six headers this season, the same number as in the whole of last season and one more than in the season before that.
