Jose Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge has seen Chelsea start brightly, but there is always room for improvement. Here are three players who I would like the Blues to sign in January to boost their title hopes.
David Luiz is causing Chelsea problems of late, making mistakes which have led to the Blues getting into trouble on the pitch. And although the West London side have plenty of cover with John Terry, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic all able to play in the centre, I put forward the name of this centre-back and ask - could this be the man to lead the Chelsea backline for years to come?
Chelsea snatched a late 2-2 at home to West Brom yesterday, so here are five things we learned from the clash.
Fernando Torres isn't what he used to be. That's the opinion of most football fans across the country, and a view that I share. The Spaniard has fallen from grace since his blistering form at Liverpool, but I still think he has enough about him to lead the line at Chelsea, which is a less-shared opinion.
Is Cahill the best partner for John Terry? 3 things we learnt from Chelsea's 3-0 victory over Schalke
Chelsea beat Schalke 3-0 for the second time in as many weeks in their Champions League clash last night, but here are three things we learnt from the game.
Last season under the 'fat Spanish waitor' Rafa Benitez, Cesar Aspilicueta was a key player at Chelsea. The Spaniard arrived from Marseille and slotted into the right-back berth with Branislav Ivanovic tucking inside to the central position next to Gary Cahill.
Ahead of Chelsea's Champions League clash with Schalke tonight, here are three players from the Bundesliga side who I think have the potential to hurt the Blues.
Chelsea are in with a real chance of reclaiming the Premier League title this season under the guidance of Jose Mourinho and they have started brightly. They may be five points behind leaders Arsenal but they have shown they have the firepower to mix it with the big boys, and there is still a long way to go until the end of the season.
After Chelsea's 2-0 loss to Newcastle, here are three things that Jose Mourinho and the Blues' fans can take from the tie.
Full-backs may not get the credit that other players get but today they do, but who are the best 5 left-backs to have graced the Premier League? In my opinion:
With reports from the Daily Mail suggesting that Jose Mourinho will be given the green light to sign a new striker in January, here are three suggestions that I would like to see at Chelsea.
It seems strange that Jose Mourinho let Romelu Lukaku leave the club in order to join Everton on loan, especially with what it has left Chelsea with in the forward department. With only Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o to choose from, Mourinho isn't exactly blessed with natural goal-getters. But things could be changing, as talkSPORT are reporting that the Blues could be lining up a move for Porto frontman Jackson Martinez, which should spark excitement across the Chelsea fanbase.
As a Chelsea fan, I am quietly confident that it will my boys lifting the Premier League title come May, with Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City squabbling for the places below. However, that could all change if we don't recruit a prolific scorer in the new year.
Stereotypes are a common thing in football, especially when it comes to the way a country plays the beautiful game. Here in England we have the reputation of being a rough-and-tumble league with a fast flow and a dogged determination. Meanwhile in Italy, football is all about tactics and is undergone in a slower, more technical way - much like Spain. The South Americans have a reputation of being a colourful, fiery bunch who play the game with a shed-load of skill and flair, while African sides are packed with strong, bullish players like Yaya Toure. And while we know that it isn't the case for all players or clubs in those areas of the world, Chelsea have just signed a player who fits the bill of the latter.
Chelsea made some big name signings this summer, so here are three that have stood out and how they have settled into life at Stamford Bridge.
