Chelsea will be aiming to continue their journey towards the Premier League title when the host Stoke City in Saturday’s 5:30 start.

Jose Mourinho’s side have a tight grip on the trophy with a six-point cushion over second-place Manchester City with a game in-hand.

Before the international break Chelsea overcame a spirited Hull City 3-2 courtesy of a 77-minute Loic Remy strike.

Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes he can help his side deal with the physical and height threat of Stoke’s frontline, as he did in December’s reverse fixture which the Blues won 2-0.

“We handled it very well, so I’m sure they will play the same and I hope I can come for the crosses as I did there,” Courtois told www.chelseafc.com. “Of course now they know also in that moment I came for the crosses so they will maybe put one or two guys on me.

“Maybe it will be harder, but of course I have to try to help the team on that aspect because with the tall Peter Crouch it’s not easy for the defenders to win headers against him, so I have to help the defence. I hope I can do that.”

Stoke have enjoyed a season comfortably in mid table but enter Saturday’s match having lost their last two outings.

A fortnight ago the Potters suffered a 2-1 loss against Crystal Palace a week after going down 1-0 at West Brom, and Mark Hughes believes despite Chelsea being the favourites his side can cause problems for the league leaders.

“We have acquitted ourselves well in big games on the road this season, and we want to go down to London and put in another good performance,” Hughes told stokecityfc.com.

“It will be incredibly difficult because they have world class players and they have an outstanding man in charge. I don’t think they have been playing as well as they were at the start of the season, but they are still picking up positive results.”

All logic suggests Chelsea will grab the three points on offer but the question is by how many. The Blues’ last four wins have been by a single goal and Boylesports are offering 11/4 for them to repeat the feat this weekend.
