Antonio Conte: Goalscoring Gary Cahill could play as centre forward

Stoke vs. Chelsea: Highlights and recap

His team snatched a late victor, with Gary Cahill's goal taking them a step closer to the title. But for sure Cesc has shown himself to be a great professional but, above all, a great player. Then we start in Cobham. "I think he's available but, before Stoke it's important to check a couple of situations".

After the match, Antonio Conte praised Costa for showing "great discipline" to avoid a second booking, and Cahill - who has captained Chelsea in the absence of John Terry since the shift to a 3-4-3 formation in September - said he made an effort to help the Spain global keep his cool.

"It's hard to take because we played well, we created some chances as well and I think we should have got a point".

But the 26-year-old stayed behind at the club's Cobham training ground for treatment after pulling up with the problem yesterday morning.

Stoke's defenders recognised that he was ripe for being wound up after his early indiscretion and succeeded to an extent in riling him. No reunion between Costa and Ryan Shawcross was likely to end in cuddles and compliments, but many of Chelsea's first-half struggles were directly related to their striker spending more of his time wrestling opposition defenders than providing an effective focal point. Maybe they do this to get him a red card or something.

He said: "We can calm down because we're going into internationals now".

"It is not about formations and systems, it is more about how the players execute what they are asked to do".

Cahill reacted quickest to an Erik Pieters mistake to lash a shot beyond Lee Grant with three minutes remaining at the bet365 Stadium, having earlier conceded a penalty with a push that allowed Jonathan Walters to cancel out Willian's clever free-kick opener in the 13th minute.

In the wake of Monday's hard-fought FA Cup win over United, Conte said he hoped Chelsea would always face teams that "want to beat us playing football".

After joining Chelsea in the 2012/2013 season when he won the Europa League with The Blues, Moses spent the next two seasons out on loan at Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham. There are 10 games to go, today was a great win, a good signal, but it is important to continue with the same commitment and work rate as a team. We have to look at ourselves, not the others. We must be ready to fight.
