Chelsea failed to deliver the Premier League gift that might have taken the suffocating pressure off an absent friend as manager Jose Mourinho was forced to endure yet another defeat at Stoke City on Saturday. Mourinho had shrugged that his stadium ban might force him to watch the match on a street corner on his iPad but wherever he saw the game, Marko Arnautovic’s 52nd minute volley in Stoke’s 1-0 win will have made for wretched viewing for him. Despite largely dominating proceedings in one of their better performances of an abject season, Arnautovic’s acrobatic volley was enough to consign Mourinho’s team to a seventh league defeat of the campaign.
