Minute   Description
90' +6 Stoke's first defeat of the season, Chelsea stay unbeaten thanks to Ashley Cole. Thank you very much for joining me this afternoon for our LIVE! text commentary. I've been Chris Teale, and I'll see you all soon.
90' +5 FULL TIME, and it’s Chelsea who take all three points today thanks to a goal from Ashley Cole. It took until the 84th minute for the deadlock to be broken after some superb defending from Stoke kept the Blues at bay. Not the greatest game in the world, truth be told, and there were few clear chances and only flashes of brilliance from Eden Hazard and Oscar. But, it’s Chelsea who take the win, and maintain their unbeaten start in the Premier League.
90' +2 David Luiz gets yellow.
90' +1 Handbags at dawn there between players from both sides. This game has passed with little incident, so it would be a shame to have this rubbish so late on. Thankfully, Michael Oliver rides in to save the day.
89' J. Terry enters the game and replaces Mata.
86' Victor Moses looks seriously quick out there, and it takes a superb last-ditch tackle from Matt Etherington to stop him going all the way.
85' A. Cole has scored a goal for Chelsea! Assist by Mata.
GOAL!!! It's 1-0 Chelsea! Stoke finally are broken down! The move is started and finished by Ashley Cole, who makes a lung-busting run into the box before tapping home. It's his first goal in the Premier League since 2010, and what a time to get it.
81' F. Lampard enters the game and replaces J. Obi Mikel.
78' Kenwyne Jones manages to keep a high ball in and feeds Mr. Charles Adam. Unfortunately, the Scot drags his shot wide, but it was a good chance for Stoke.
76' John Obi Mikel breaks after a superb one-two with Torres, but realistically he was never going to do anything with that. It deflects upwards, into Begovic's arms.
