Nemanja Matic v Stephen Ireland

Nemanja Matic is expected to make his second debut for Chelsea against Stoke City, having re-signed for the west London club earlier this month.

Stephen Ireland will hope to capitalise on a player not yet familiar with his team-mates, and after signing a permanent deal with the Potters he will be in confident form.

The former Manchester City star, who shone under Mark Hughes at Eastlands, looks to have found a new lease of life under his old boss at the Britannia Stadium, and Matic will hope his class will tell on the day.
