Chelsea suffer third straight Premier League defeat

  • Chelsea suffered their third straight defeat in the English Premier League as they were beaten by hosts Stoke 0-1. In Saturday's match, the defending champions were without their under-fire manager Jose Mourinho who was banned from the stadium for his behavior towards match officials in his side's 1-2 defeat at West Ham in October, media reports said. It was Chelsea's seventh loss in 12 league matches, which left the Blues to drop to a lowly 16th place and Mourinho's job in serious danger. (Source: IANS)
