Video: Things go badly wrong for a Hazard screamer

Things went badly wrong for Stoke today, two own goals for Ireland's Jonathan Walters, a missed penalty, and a Hazard stunner.

Walters grabbed a second own goal with some poor defending after his first diving header own goal, turning his back on the cross and getting completely lost under the ball.

After that, he won a penalty of John Terry to grab some consolation for Stoke, but blasted it high over the bar. You can chalk this one down as a bad day at the office for Walters, who is normally superb for Pulis' side.

Chelsea looked extremely comfortable for long periods, and converted that into results on the scoreboard as well as some extremely nice football on the pitch.


Hazard added to the woes of Tony Pulis by scoring Chelsea's fourth in style, as it was quickly becoming a rout for the Blues.

Still, even though this was a complete spanking, it looks like there's no love from the Chelsea fans for Rafa.


Shout out to referee's assistant Sian Massey, who had a great game and got a controversial penalty claim right early in the second half.

Captain leader legend John Terry also marked his return from injury with a substitute appearance in this game. His reception at the Brittania was not all that warm though, even though he swiftly gave away a penalty.
