Stoke 0-0 Chelsea: Villas Boas starts with draw

“A decent game, but a 0-0 draw in Andre Villas Boas’ first game in charge of Chelsea. Tony Pulis gave a a debut to Jonathan Woodgate at the back, and started with Stoke’s usual 4-4-1-1 from last season – two wingers, plus Jon Walters just off Kenwyne Jones. Villas Boas kept Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka on the bench, using two wide players either side of Fernando Torres. Chelsea struggled to get going and spent most of the first half dealing with Rory Delap’s long throws into the penalty area, but got better as the game went on.” Zonal Marking
