LONDON - Jon Walters scored an unfortunate brace of headed own goals and missed a late penalty as Chelsea won 4-0 at Stoke City to reclaim third place in the Premier League on Saturday.
Frank Lampard also got on the score-sheet to become Chelsea's second-highest all-time goal-scorer, as Rafael Benitez's side bounced back from their 2-0 loss to Swansea City in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final.
Chelsea made the breakthrough in first-half injury time at the Britannia Stadium when Walters inadvertently put Cesar Azpilicueta's cross past his own goalkeeper with a bullet header. Improbably, Walters then diverted a Juan Mata into his own goal to make it 2-0 in the 63rd minute and two minutes later Lampard blasted home his 194th Chelsea goal from the penalty spot after Mata went down in the Stoke box.
Eden Hazard added a superb fourth in the 73rd minute.
