So it seems the new Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas was not best pleased with the amount of jostling and shirt grabbing in and around the box when it came to set pieces. The Chelsea man had realised he was going into a physical game but found that the Stoke way was just “out of this world”.
Chelsea handled the set pieces from Stoke very well, but were unable to break the deadlock as they found themselves on the end of a 0-0 draw. Going away to Stoke is never an easy game, but I guess we can say to Andre Villas-Boas – “Welcome to the Premier League”.
We would add the Chelsea gaffa’s name to the list of managers who have critisied Stoke’s heavy handed approach, but we arent sure the website can cope with that much information!
