Stand-in captain Frank Lampard hit an injury-time winner as Chelsea came from behind to see off strugglers Stoke.

The England midfielder marked his 400th Blues appearance as he drove the ball home from 16 yards with his shot taking a deflection off Michael Ballack.

Rory Delap looked to have earned Stoke a shock win with a neat finish , but substitute Juliano Belletti headed in a dramatic late equaliser .The victory keeps Chelsea in the title hunt and will take some of the heat off their Brazilian coach.

Scolari’s plight has not been helped by the loss of England midfielder Joe Cole with a knee injury for the rest of the season and John Terry’s back problem in the pre-match warm-up meant he was unable to play.

But Scolari’s public feud with Ivorian striker Didier Drogba appears to have backfired on him as he would have provided just the kind of cutting edge lacked by the Blues.

Since beating Sunderland 5-0 at the start of November, Chelsea had only managed home wins over CFR Cluj and West Brom
