A lot gets written about Chelsea’s failure to give young players a chance; however, with it emerging over the last few days that we have brought in over £100m in transfer fees you have to question as to whether this logic is actually a bad one. I truly believe that if you are good enough …

The fact that Chelsea endured a …

Does Victor Moses give Chelsea’s loan farm validity?

Antonio Conte turning Victor Moses into a valuable first-team player at Chelsea was a key part of his debut title-winning campaign.
