Games against Stoke City never come easy, especially at their home ground, the Bet365 Stadium, which was formerly known as the Britannia Stadium.
Manchester United have already dropped points against Stoke, a 2-2 draw at the Potters ground, and for Chelsea winger Willian, the Blues must fight to defeat Stoke City this afternoon.
“Against Stoke it’s about competing physically, running and working for each other,” he tells the official Chelsea website. “We know we have the quality on the ball because we have top players but against them it’s not enough to just be effective in possession, you have to fight.
“I expect a hard, physical contest. It’s always a difficult game away at Stoke but you have to be ready for these kind of opponents in the Premier League. They have many strong players and they work very hard off the ball, it will be tough.”
