A late Gary Cahill goal gave Chelsea a 2-1 victory against Stoke City and ensured we left the bet365 Stadium with all three points and a 13-point gap at the top of the league.
Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is disappointed his side failed to get anything from the game and he believed the ball fell kindly for Gary Cahill to smash home the winner for Chelsea.
“We are desperately disappointed we did not get anything out of the game,” he said. “The ball dropped kindly for them and they got the winner.
“It was an evenly matched game and they had late opportunities when we went for a goal.
“It is Chelsea’s title now and you could see from their celebrations we ran them close.
We kept on going, kept on moving the ball but there was a suggestion for a red card for our penalty. It was a little bit feisty, we gave everything and I cannot criticise our players.
“We had a goal disallowed and the player made a meal of the slight push. He was not affecting Bruno Martins Indi getting to the ball.
“We have given a good account against the champions elect.”
