Mark Hughes‘ hot seat is surely catching fire after Stoke City’s 2-1 defeat to League 2 side (fourth division) Coventry City at Ricoh Arena. The Potters have won just two of their last 13 matches across all competitions, and fallen to 18th in the PL.

Meanwhile, Chelsea, Leicester City, Swansea City and Bournemouth were several of the top-flight sides that settled for draws on the day, forcing replays in their respective ties.

The big winners of the day though (outside of Coventry) were League 1 side Peteborough — who dispatched of Championship club Aston Villa, 3-1, on the road.
