Carragher: Moses' Success At Chelsea a Shock To Me

Victor Moses trains with Chelsea ahead of Stoke clash

Eden Hazard's absence - the Belgian global was left in London as a precaution after picking up an injury in training - wasn't enough to alter this policy in Stoke, either.

Conte had Cahill to thank after the defender fired home the victor in the 87th minute, as Chelsea left it late to clinch all three precious points.

With the teams level after 70 minutes, Conte - who was without star forward Eden Hazard due to a reported muscle injury - changed his much-vaunted 3-4-3 formation to a 4-2-3-1 and Chelsea responded by upping the pressure to force a late victor.

Either Charlie Adam or Glen Whelan could team up alongside Geoff Cameron in the middle of the park for the Potters with Joe Allen ahead of them as their chief creative agent, in behind the striker. "It is not easy at this point in the season to come here and play Stoke, a strong team with good quality and good tactical organisation, but we showed from the start to the end a great will to win and I am very pleased for this".

Chelsea have kept only 2 clean sheets in their last 9 Premier League games.

Rival groups of Arsenal fans paid for two planes trailing banners to fly over the ground during the game, one reading "NO CONTRACT #WENGER OUT", the other "IN ARSENE WE TRUST". The response was a yellow card and Conte sent Michy Batshuayi to warm up as an attempt to remind his striker to focus on testing Grant instead.

"But Diego is showing to be a good player".

"It's always very hard to always take the best decision", Conte said, as quoted by the London Evening Standard. A different situation. I think, above all, in football it's not simple to give always a correct evaluation for players.

After the win at Stoke, Conte said: "Hazard in the last training felt a bit of a problem in his calf and for this reason I preferred not to risk him".

Stoke left gaps at the back as they pushed for an equaliser and Costa hit post before Ruben Loftus-Cheek was denied his first goal of the season in stoppage time. The importance of getting three points as opposed to one is huge.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says his team will get even better as his players continue to adapt to his methods and ideas, despite the team closing in on the English Premier League title. They have those memories and understand what it takes. "I think he's available but, before Stoke it's important to check a couple of situations", Conte said.
