Chelsea slumped to a third successive Premier League defeat as Stoke City secured a 1-0 victory at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

With Blues boss Jose Mourinho absent as he served his one-game stadium ban, it was left to his backroom staff to oversee the Premier League clash from the dugout.

And after a goalless first half at The Britannia, Marko Arnautovic fired home acrobatically in the 53rd minute to give the home side the lead.

Chelsea brought on the likes of Cesc Fabregas as they searched for an equaliser, but the west Londoners were unable to find a breakthrough as their disastrous start to the new season continued.

The result left Chelsea in 16th place in the Premier League table and just three points above the relegation zone and heaped yet more pressure on manager Mourinho.

Here, we take a look at some of the best pictures uploaded to Instagram by fans in attendance at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday evening.
