Stoke City beat the champions and Chelsea get all the media coverage
Stoke City beat current Premier League champions Chelsea 1-0 at the Britannia Stadium. Mark Hughes has turned a team of bruisers and hoofers into a decent passing side. And what prise does he get? What word on stock City’s achievements in making the PL look a little less like a procession?
Sunday Telegraph: “Chelsea Crash.” Why is losing to Stoke a crash, an accident?
The Indy: Chelsea “in freefall”. Mourinho is”deep trouble”. And Mark Hughes, the former Manchester United and Chelsea player…? He’s nowhere.
The Mail: news is that the players still “back Jose”. And is that Eden Hazard trying to deliver a kiss?
Express: “Jose near the edge”. Is that the same as “the brink”?
The Mail (again): not one but two Joses. No sign of a Stoke city player. No sign of Stoke being good. Just news that Chelsea are “bad”.
Chelsea – we can remember when they weren’t all that good.
