Comments:

League position: 10th With this result, Guus Hiddink became the first manager to remain unbeaten in the first 12 Premier League games from the beginning of his managerial spell. He overtook Frank Clark's record of 11 games in 1994 at Nottingham Forest. Chelsea had now failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight Premier League home games.

Comments:

League position: 7th Stoke City had now won only one of their last 15 Premier League games in London (lost eight). Mame Biram Diouf scored his first goal since September and ended a run of 12 league games without a goal.
