Stoke boss delighted with point against Chelsea

The Potters came under pressure throughout the second-half at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday, but the game ended in a stalemate.

“Of course it’s a good point. We’re delighted,” Pulis told Sky Sports News.

“First half we gave them a game, we were competitive and did some good things going forward.

“Second half we dropped off a little bit and Chelsea came into it.”

He added on Stoke debutant Jonathan Woodgate: “He’s going to be a good player. We’re just oiling him at the moment, he’s not really working at the top of his game. But you watch him today and I thought he was magnificent.”

“They’re a great side. If you look at their substitutions they’re bringing (Nicolas) Anelka, (Didier) Drogba and (Yossi) Benayoun off the bench,” he said of Chelsea.

“They’ve got great strength and depth and they’ll be one of the top three teams this year without a question of a doubt.”
