Stoke v Chelsea
Britannia Stadium
Kick off:
13.30 BST Sunday
Last season: Stoke 1 Chelsea 1, Chelsea 2 Stoke 0

Another Premier League newcomer makes his debut in the dugout, as Andre Villas-Boas takes his Chelsea side to the Britannia Stadium.

Stoke represent awkward opponents for any opponents and manager Tony Pulis will be confident of extending his side's enviable home record after adding Jonathan Woodgate and Matthew Upson to his squad in the close season.

Chelsea have Fernando Torres available after the £50m striker recovered from a concussion picked up during international duty but new-signing Romelu Lukaku is unavailable, with the paperwork from his £18m move still to be completed.

Pulis is without Ricardo Fuller, Mamady Sidibe and Danny Higginbotham.
