Weekend Live! (24-26 Jan)

  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Second-half is under way, Stamford Bridge almost silent. It's been too easy for Chelsea really.
    1/26/2014 4:33:03 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Matic steps in to intercept for the 437th time today. He's had a very impressive home debut
    1/26/2014 4:36:11 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Walters' header from 18 yards flies over the bar - that's as close as the visitors have got to a sight of Schwarzer's goal for a long time. That said, it's still only 1-0...
    1/26/2014 4:38:38 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Oscar bends one just wide after a very eye-pleasing, intricate move involving Cole and Schurrle.
    1/26/2014 4:40:42 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Stoke finally manufacture an inch of space in the Chelsea box. Crouch can't sort his feet out to get the shot away so feeds Walters, but his shot rises just past the far post.
    1/26/2014 4:41:35 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE [stoke]
    Walters buys a free-kick from Ivanovic 25 yards from goal, but Arnautovic's effort bends away from the near post and Schwarzer watches it wide
    1/26/2014 4:44:36 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Oscar, sizing up his options, decides he doesn't like any of them and has a speculative pop from distance. It's deflected behind for a corner, Stoke clear well, only to give it away again and this time Cahill's drive pings off a defender for another corner. Begovic claims this one.
    1/26/2014 4:47:53 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Eto'o finds Lampard in the box with a brilliant pass, but he's crowded out without any options for a pass as no one makes a run into the box. 
    1/26/2014 4:52:21 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Very odd atmosphere here. Stamford Bridge almost silent as Stoke pop the ball about with all the urgency of a recalcitrant schoolchild.
    1/26/2014 4:55:59 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE [substitution]
    Schurrle makes way for Ramires in Chelsea's first change of the game. Would imagine Mark Hughes will make a swap soon.
    1/26/2014 4:56:58 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE [stoke]
    Terrible stuff from Stoke and Hughes has had enough. Assaidi comes on to replace Palacios.
    1/26/2014 4:58:45 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE [save]
    Good challenge from Ireland as Hazard powers into the box. Lampard then draws a good low save from Begovic with a half-volley from the edge of the box. 
    1/26/2014 5:03:03 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Somehow, somehow, Chelsea haven't scored a second as Hazard crosses for Ramires, who has an open goal from two yards to aim at. He can't get his feet right though and the ball falls to Eto'o, who then stabs wide under pressure. This could easily have been 6-0...
    1/26/2014 5:05:12 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Ramires tumbles in the box under pressure from Pieters, but no penalty. Would have been soft after a little nudge...
    1/26/2014 5:07:26 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE [substitution]
    Goalscorer Oscar is withdrawn for compatriot Willian and gives all and sundry high and low fives as he shuffles to his back seat in the dugout
    1/26/2014 5:08:52 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Pieters booked for a scythe on Ramires just outside the area. Luiz drills a ferocious shot towards the top corner but Begovic is equal to it, producing a fine save and Chelsea have a corner. Eto'o is replaced by Ba.
    1/26/2014 5:11:59 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE [ouch]
    Shawcross takes one in the knick-knacks to block Willian's shot and needs some time to get himself together. He's defended superbly today, blocking countless efforts.
    1/26/2014 5:14:30 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Stoke are going out with a whimper. There's been no second-half rally, not a single moment of cup inspiration, as if 1-0 is better than any other defeat. Credit to Chelsea, they've shut the game down as only Jose Mourinho sides know how, but it's been a horrible anti-climax.
    1/26/2014 5:16:47 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE
    Stoke, with a throw-in deep in Chelsea territory with two minutes to go, pass the ball back to their keeper within 10 seconds. Unbelievable. Horribly insipid performance from the visitors.
    1/26/2014 5:19:39 PM
  • CHELSEA 1-0 STOKE [full-time]
    That's it and Chelsea cruise into the draw for the fifth round, courtesy of Oscar's brilliant free-kick. Stoke were very, very poor. The draw is to follow
