Roberto Di Matteo insisted the three points were all that mattered as Chelsea stuttered to a 1-0 win over 10-man Stoke.
But caretaker Blues manager Di Matteo admitted his side would need to improve to overturn a two-goal deficit against Napoli in Wednesday night's Champions League clash. The Italians, who won their own build-up match 6-3 on Friday night, would not have been overawed by Chelsea, with Didier Drogba ending Stoke's resistance with his 100th Barclays Premier League goal.
Di Matteo said: "You can discuss what you want about the past. I'm focused on going forward and getting the team in the right frame of mind to be able to win the next game."
