    Hard to guess without knowing how many letters!


    The potter is presumably a Stoke player (Whelan, Walters?)

    93a second
    42d Jon Walters

    Not sure about Goalmouth as the second letter is R

    Orlando...87a A Lord on the pitch....anagram of a lord.

    I've put in STONES as if you put City in clue instead of Chelsea it's the only answer that makes sense. May be an error with the clue

    11A These are even for the headstrong - H?L?E?S
    28A Claudia or Nicolas? Footballers, with no iris perhaps - O????I I presume t's an anagram of "noiris" but stuck to get anything to fit.

    38A Denis was a rebellious Red - I?O??
    21D One short of a poker - T???L??
    47A A score in Australia is not one here - U??E
