Speaking ahead of the must-win encounter against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, manager Antonio Conte delivered some key injury new which could have a bearing on the outcome of the game.

Why Edin Dzeko to Chelsea doesn’t make much sense

Diego Costa’s exit was possibly the worst thing that happened to us last summer. We’ve talked a lot about our defence and midfield, but the Spaniard’s ability to single-handedly win us crucial points has what has been most sorely missed. We signed Alvaro Morata for 58 million, but he hasn’t really set the world alight despite a very good start.… Read More

5 players we need to replace this summer

There is a lot of deadwood in the current squad, and if we really want to elevate ourselves to being one of the top clubs in Europe, we need a re-haul soon.

Will Antonio Conte start playing Ross Barkley in his best position?

Ross Barkley is set to return to full training next week, as reported here by the Telegraphafter recovering from a hamstring injury that has kept him out since January. The former Everton man only joined us in Jan for a bargain sum of £15 million, and has made an appearance each in the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup.… Read More

Why the summer transfer window will be the most important in the Abramovich era

There is a sense of deja vu among us Chelsea fans as this dismal season enters its final phase. There is an increasing feeling that Antonio Conte is going to join the long list of managerial casualties in the summer, after failing to follow-up on last season’s heroics. It’s been a series of events we’ve seen time and again in the past, but always, the trophies have continued to flow in.… Read More

After a shambolic display against Manchester City last week, where we offered less than nothing, it’s hard to know quite how to feel about today’s home game against Crystal Palace. On the one hand, they are awful and on the other, so are we.… Read More
