Chelsea strike back for victory

Published Add your comment

Two late goals from substitute Juliano Belletti and Frank Lampard capped a dramatic fightback by Chelsea to ease the pressure on their under-fire boss Luiz Felipe Scolari as they defeated Stoke 2-1.

Rory Delap put struggling Stoke in front with a 59th minute goal but Belletti, on for Jose Bosingwa, headed a dramatic equaliser with three minutes remaining.

Then in second-half stoppage time Lampard slammed the ball home from 20 yards for a sensational finish.
