Chelsea 1 Stoke City 0: match report
Read a full match report of the Premier League game between Chelsea and Stoke City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday Mar 10 2012, kick-off 15:00 GMT.
Roberto Di Matteo says he has no friends but after victory today the Chelsea interim manager will certainly have a few more pals to call on.
Didier Drogba, who turns 34 tomorrow, celebrated the Blues’ 107th anniversary with his 100th Premier League goal as Di Matteo’s men finally managed to break down 10-man Stoke City
Didier Drogba has 10 Premier League games left as a Chelsea player under his current contract – here was a little message about what they would miss if he does not get a new one. In a frustrating, fractious game, Drogba made the decisive intervention with 20 minutes to go, finishing expertly for his 100th Premier League goal
Drogba turns 34 today and apparently wants a two-year deal to stay at Stamford Bridge. He will have lucrative offers from China and the
Middle East and has often spoken of the sentimental pull of a return to Marseilles but he clearly feels he has unfinished business at Stamford Bridge.
