Chelsea remain on course for victory after at Stamford Bridge thanks to Bertrand Traore’s breathtaking first-half strike.Traore, playing up front because of a tendon injury to Diego Costa, turned sharply 25 yards from goal following a Nemanja Matic pass and crashed the ball in to the far corner from the edge of the box.Stoke came close to levelling soon after the restart when Marco Arnautovic tested Thibaut Courtois with a fierce shot from distance, while the Belgian keeper also saved well from Xherdan Shaqiri’s low strikeAt the other end the impressive Eden Hazard – on his 200th Blues appearance – fired an attempt across goal following a swift break by Willian.The only goal came with Chelsea well on top but Stoke had started brightly and created three good chances on the break.Courtois made a decent save from Ibrahim Afellay’s long-range strike and Mame Diouf twice wasted good shooting positions.But Chelsea started to threaten more regularly after the half-hour mark, mainly through the recalled Willian, who blasted an effort narrowly wide and also saw a shot blocked after a fine run by Hazard.The Blues and the Potters are both chasing a fourth consecutive Premier League victory. A Chelsea win would take them above Stoke in the table and could take them up to seventh place in the table.Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Baba, Ivanovic, Cahill; Matic, Mikel; Willian, Hazard, Oscar, Traore.Subs: Begovic, Miazga, Clarke-Salter, Loftus-Cheek, Fabregas, Pato.

By Michael GutterBudget. There, I said it; I am sure everyone is cringing now. This is a tough topic for families to discuss. Couples struggle at times to have formal conversations about money management. And we seldom want to discuss these issues with our children. Are we afraid of being judged? Are we concerned we will feel bad about our choices? Are we worried that we will stress out the children? Talking about money can be difficult, however, try to talk about money regularly and avoid being defensive.Get StartedEmail firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a copy of the Money Management CalendarOftentimes a question about money spent or the price of something desired is merely a request for information, although it may seem like an interrogation..One way to get started tracking expenses in a house is to take the initiative in your family. Be patient, start simply. For example, you can use a sheet from the Money Management Calendar and place it on the fridge with a list of some of your expected expenses. Inevitably your spouse or partner will ask what it is all about.The calendar can be an easy visual tool to help you begin to get organized with your finances. It easy to use; you can find out more about calendar based budgeting here.Don’t AttackIf you want to be really proactive in prompting communication, you can estimate all of your households expenses but then put “?” by the items which are really your spouse or partner’s expenses.
