Chelsea fought hard to overcome a resilient Stoke City side, and the first goal conceded by the team was offside.

Bruno Martins Indi drew the visitors level in controversial circumstances, as the linesman failed to spot the offside position. Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has taken the blame for the goal, saying it was as a result of how he set the team up.

“When you take the lead and concede at the start of the second half, when it was clearly offside, it’s my fault because I train my defenders to keep the right line until the ref’s whistle.

“My players were very good, the linesman not so much.”
