Sitting here by the pool in the bright Arizona sunshine seems like the perfect time to write about a rainy away day at Stoke.
Actually, no it isn’t. This is not a place that’s too conducive to blogging, so here’s everything you need to know for Saturday’s game. It’s the last Chelsea match for two weeks, so enjoy.
COME ON, CHELSEA!

Stoke City team news: Be sure to read Rob’s opposition preview. It’s hard to figure out if Stoke are good, bad, or just the usual, but no trip to the Britannia should ever be easy.
Chelsea team news: All eyes on Victor Moses’s possible lower leg injury (calf?). Otherwise, expect the usual suspects, with the usual gameplan, and hopefully the usual result.
Previously: Last time out, 4-2 to the good guys.
