Premier League round-up

Chelsea 1-0 Stoke City

Didier Drogba scored his 100th goal in the Barclays Premier League to hand Roberto di Matteo victory in his first League match in charge of Chelsea.

Drogba finished off expertly from a Juan Mata pass in the second half to earn the Blues a valuable three points against Stoke, who had Ricardo Fuller sent off for violent conduct before half-time.

Mata almost added a second late on when he fired a superb free-kick against the post with Asmir Begovic well beaten.

Aston Villa 1-0 Fulham

Andreas Weimann scored his first goal for Aston Villa to give them a dramatic late win over Fulham.

Weimann showed great persistence to bundle in from close range three minutes into injury time after Mark Schwarzer could not deal with a shot from Gary Gardner.
