Chelsea Youngsters On Brink Of Breaking Into First Team

Chinese Super League has been a waking giant in the recent years, with numerous European football stars suddenly moving to the Chinese premier division. The reason?

Branislav Ivanovic’s cameo performance against Brentford at the weekend was a perfect reminder of what the Serbian has provided Chelsea with over the years.

Does Chelsea’s Pursuit Of Dembele Suggest That Batshuayi Time Is Up?

It has seemed pretty clear from the outset that Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi was not Antonio Conte’s signing.

Will Chelsea Pull Off This Sweet Signing Before The Deadline?

The transfer window closes on the 31st of January and Chelsea haven’t made any significant incoming transfers as yet.

The biggest concern Conte needs to address is what …

If Asmir Begovic Leaves Could Either Of These Keepers Be Signed?

As previously reported, Chelsea will likely have to get a 3rd keeper to cover for Begovic’s departure.

Chelsea Interested In Serie A Left Back To Support The Impressive Alonso

While a 3-5-2 might look easy especially after seeing Chelsea this season, things are a bit more complicated than that.

Who Will Replace Departing Chelsea Keeper?

Report: Chelsea Getting Very Serious About Signing Bang In-Form Spanish Striker

Swansea’s 6’5’’ striker Fernando Llorente managed the performance of a lifetime and knocked Liverpool further behind Chelsea in the title race.

Chelsea Proving To Be Transfer Window Masters

Chelsea are showing themselves to be masters of the transfer window, having sold striker Patrick Bamford to Premier League rivals Middlesbrough.

The …

Conte Looking To Upgrade Chelsea’s Midfield With Strong And Dynamic Players

Conte has things figured out at Stamford Bridge already despite spending a relatively short time in the Premier League. The lot is working well, the positions are covered and there is little room for improvement. The Blues have the speed, efficiency, creativity and versatility to handle any opponent. But do they have the physical power to …

Chelsea Are Linked To A Number Of Striking Options

Even though Antonio Conte has denied any conflict between him and Diego Costa, the stories in the press are bound to be having a negative effect between the two.
