Chelsea fell to a 1-0 defeat away at FC Basel last night in the Champions League, and although the Blues have qualified for the knockout rounds, there was a lot to moan about. Here are five things that we learned from the tie.
Chelsea’s season has been a positive one so far in my opinion. The return of Jose Mourinho has seen them climb top of their Champions League group and they sit narrowly behind leaders Arsenal in the Premier League, but there has been a few things that have been bugging me.
Robert Lewandowski is out of contract in the summer, and while Borussia Dortmund have no choice but to watch his name be thrown around linked to other clubs, ITV are reporting that Chelsea are ready to make the Poland international an offer he can’t refuse. But should they sign the 25-year-old, what will they be getting?
Chelsea are currently enjoying a decent season under the guidance of Jose Mourinho. They sit third in the league, just four points behind leaders Arsenal, and sit top of Group E in the Champions League by three points. The Blues’ most recently outing ended with a 3-0 trouncing of local rivals West Ham, so I thought that I would analyse their good start to the season.
Frank Lampard has suffered some serious stick from some West Ham fans over the years after he joined London rivals Chelsea – being a Chelsea fan, I know.

Chelsea climbed to second place in the Premier League after a 3-0 victory at West Ham yesterday afternoon. Here are five things that we learned from the game.
With the Daily Star reporting that Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata is attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal in a £40m deal, here is five reasons as to why I would suggest it would suit both parties if the Spaniard made an exit.
He may not be getting much of a sniff at the moment, but letting Kevin de Bruyne leave the club in January could be a move that comes back to haunt west London. The Belgium international showed us what he was about last season on loan at Werder Bremen and in glimpses this time round back at his parent club, but now the Mirror are reporting that he is the target for La Liga side Atletico Madrid.
I’m sure in life, at times, we all have opinions about our peers. Whether it be co-workers, friends, or family, everyone has got an opinion on everyone else, but the question is, is it ever okay to actually say something? That dilemma came up earlier this week when Chelsea and Belgium mid fielder Eden Hazardwas quoted saying that he felt as if fellow Chelsea and Belgium mid fielder, Kevin De Bruyne should probably look to play his club football elsewhere come the January transfer window.
