How to watch Chelsea take on Stoke City. He's 11/5 (Betfair) for two or more on Saturday night.

Stoke City possible XI: Butland, Martins Indi, Shawcross, Wimmer, Diouf, Allen, Fletcher, Pieters, Shaqiri, Choupo-Moting, Jese. Bruno Martins Indi is the only fit senior centre defender that HIghes can call upon. Like Arsenal, Liverpool can not afford already to lose much more ground on their main Premier League rivals, with the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea looming on their fixtures horizon.

Just nine months ago, Sergio Aguero appeared in danger of being the odd man out in Guardiola's forward line following the arrival of Brazilian sensation Gabriel Jesus, but the Argentine has made himself indispensable with a blistering start to the season. Alvaro Morata has been great in his first season with the Blues. I'll try to help him score more goals.

Conte is also delighted to have Eden Hazard back fit for selection ahead of a tough week that will see Chelsea face Atletico Madrid and Manchester City as well as fighting for three points today.

Morata has enjoyed a good start to life in the Blue of London, offering something completely different to what the fans came to expect from watching the soon to depart Diego Costa week in, week out. Departing Diego Costa can attest to how much he benefitted from the Belgian superstar who created chances for the striker.

A year later than expected, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola appear set for a season-long fight for the Premier League title.

Chelsea have a tricky week ahead prior to the global break, also taking on Man City and Atletico Madrid in two defining fixtures at home and in Europe, but for now all focus will simply be on getting the job done against a stubborn opponent.

Shearer is the all-time top goalscorer in the Premier League with 260 goals in 441 games for Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers - 60 more than the next closest Wayne Rooney. "There are more games coming and we have to be ready".

He is on a hot streak - so make sure you check out Danny's tips for Southampton v Manchester United, Stoke v Chelsea and Brighton v Newcastle. If Aguero surpasses the record against Palace, it would have taken him 187 City appearances to get to 178 goals.

But Guardiola doesn't need to rely exclusively on Aguero as he also has Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane in fine form. But that run of results has left them third bottom of the table - and fans are already getting anxious after seeing their Club not replace Romelu Lukaku - only scoring two league goals in the process.
