True, Chelsea hit the bar and the post but they did naff all apart from that and only scored thanks to a Grant howler and a pathetic clearance from Pieters.
It was more like the Stoke of old though and it got the atmosphere going again for the first time in a long while. Diego Costa was on a mission to compete for the Olympics, diving at every opportunity. Not surprised Bardsley finally gave him something to cry about with that kick to earn a booking. Silly second yellow though when going in hard on Fabregas who is also a snidey fecker.
Must admit that I didn't see why we'd won the penalty. But replays showed that Cahill caught Walters on the back of his heel as well as giving him a little shove so not surprised to see it was given after all. Saying that, the ref may have just been making up for the disallowed goal for Martins Indi which was indeed a good shove by Berahino on Azpiliceuta!
Glad to have a little break now and hopefully we'll be up for our next game which is Leicester away. Hoping it'll be a good performance as I'm going down too.
