Maurizio Sarri is not the man to take Chelsea forward.

Chelsea have a massive three months ahead now and need to make some serious decisions that will have an affect on our immediate future. Forget the transfer ban and whether our appeal will be accepted to have the ban delayed by a transfer window allowing us to sign players this summer, Chelsea’s problems are far worse. Chelsea have no identity as a football team. We have a manager in charge who was brought in for his philosophy alone and not any form of silverware or accomplished success. A phil...

Do you think Chelsea’s top four hopes are now over?

Image: SkySports . Having thought about it for a couple of days now, especially after Arsenal beat Watford on Monday night, I cannot help but think that the Liverpool result on Sunday has virtually ended our top four hopes this season. We now sit fifth in the Premier League on goal-difference from Arsenal and a point behind Tottenham in third, while Manchester United sit in sixth just two points behind us. All three teams have a game in-hand having only played thirty-three games compar...

Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea: Sarri's mistake, missed opportunities and Salah rocket wins it for Liverpool.

Liverpool beat Chelsea with two quick-fire second half goals that took them back to the top of the Premier League but, as we saw with our forced tactical switch, this could have been so different for Chelsea.  I asked for Olivier Giroud to start and to ignore all thoughts of playing with a false-nine and Eden Hazard up front . Why on earth would you take the best player in the Premier League out of his comfort zone, the place where he likes to get hold of the ball facing his opponents to take t...

'Kante in, Lukaku & Matic out' - Man Utd offered transfer advice by former winger

Manchester United should be looking to sign N'Golo Kante, says Lee Sharpe, with the former Red Devils winger claiming Chelsea “don't seem to fancy” a World Cup winner. Maurizio Sarri has continued to select the France international on a regular basis this season, but has moved him out of his favoured holding role. That has led to questioning of both men's future, with Sarri linked with a return to Serie A while the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain cast admiring glances...

How does a Premier League winner become a Chelsea outcast?

Maurizio Sarri took time this week to speak of Danny Drinkwater and once again re-iterated his stance that the player has no future at Chelsea under his stewardship as he is not suitable to the system implemented this season. So how does a Premier League winning midfielder find himself in this situation at the age of twenty-nine? We must ask questions about his signing in the first place and remember it was when Antonio Conte was here. It was clear that he was not HIS signing with h...

Despite his lack of Premier League game time, Giroud has been a standout star for the Blues in the Europa League this campaign. In nine games in Europe, Giroud has scored nine and assisted two for Chelsea. But due to his lack of league playing time, G...
