Since losing to Spurs in midweek Chelsea were due to have an uphill battle against a Stoke City side who were 6 games unbeaten away from home.'
Chelsea, however, were not in a mood to be trifled with – hammering 7 past Stoke with no reply, they were a different team to that which lost to Spurs!
As well as a change in attitude, many of the Chelsea players opted for a change in football boots to help keep one hand on the Premiership title!
Didier Drogba has been a vocal supporter of the new Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly II – even having a big say over the colour scheme and ‘flicker’ technology in the upper. But that hasn’t stopped the big Ivorian from making the change back to the Black/Volt Superfly I‘s (complete with Nike (RED) laces!).
Ballack has been playing consistently in the Champions League Blue/White colourway of the Predator_X' for months now, presumably because they’re a great match for his both his Chelsea home and away kits! But the German midfielder, instead chose the launch colourway of White/Brown/Yellow for Sunday’s game.
Hat-trick hero Kalou was instrumental in the defeat of Stoke, claiming his first hat-trick since his days at Feyenoord. The nimble Ivory Coast international opted to wear his bright Macaw Green/Black/White adidas f50i‘s for the duration of the game – an unusual choice as he’s been wearing the Champions League Scarlet/Gold/White for the past few games.
And We doubt he’ll be switching back anytime soon!
