Didier Deschamps backs Maurizio Sarri’s use of Kante at Chelsea

Sarri under pressure at Chelsea Maurizio Sarri is coming under increasing pressure as Chelsea manager. Chelsea have recently suffered several humiliating defeats including 4-0 and 6-0 losses vs Bournemouth and Manchester City. The Blues have also dropped out of a Champions League spot and into 6th place after losing three of their last five league games. Then, on Monday evening, Chelsea took on Manchester United in the 5th round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea lost 2-0 thanks to goals...

Chelsea 0-2 Manchester United – Credit Solskjaer and United. Sack Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea were knocked out of the FA Cup tonight by Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. Having already called for Maurizio Sarri to be sacked last weekend, this performance does nothing to change my mind. By the sounds of it, plenty in the stands are beginning to feel the same. We wanted to see a reaction domestically tonight having been thumped by Manchester City just over a week ago . Forget Malmo in the Europa League, this is where it matters at home against an old foe. For 30 minutes ...

Chelsea vs Man United probable XIs: N’Golo Kante out of position, no Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea vs Man United probable XIs On Monday morning the Times have gone about predicting the line-ups for tonight’s FA Cup tie between Chelsea and Man United. This is the second time these sides have met this season. Back in October, Chelsea were held to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge against Man United. Ross Barkley scored a 96th minute leveller that day after Anthony Martial scored a brace. Antonio Rudiger had opened the scoring.   View this post on Instagram ...

Malmo 1-2 Chelsea - Apocalypse Now.

Right now my brain is reeling. I never thought that I would hear myself say “Michael Owen has made me feel better.” If he is the voice of reason, then the rest of the world must really have gone to sh*t.  Them: There was a Dahlin, which allows for all sorts of Blackadder inspired jokes. And a Safari, which is novelty. Other than that there was a bloke who played about twice for West Brom and a former Greenock Morton star.  Us: We couldn’t even beat our youth team in training appare...

Sack Sarri now Chelsea to save our season. Here's reasons why it MUST happen!

In today's Chelsea Daft Vlog I call for Maurizio Sarri to be sacked now in order for us to save our season after our worst Premier League defeat ever against Manchester City yesterday. Points of note: Hazard should have played on the right to face Zinchenko. Jorginho offers nothing defensively in his position. Chelsea pressed high with Kante and Barkley leaving us exposed - on instruction from Sarri. Defensively shocking. Teams change their style and tactic approach to face us. We don't. Same f...

Jorginho singled out for heavy criticism following Chelsea’s drubbing at Man City

Fans have flooded to Twitter this evening to take aim at Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, following the Italian international’s showing during the Blues’ clash with Manchester City. Man City 6-0 Chelsea Pep Guardiola’s City welcomed Chelsea to the Etihad a short time ago, eager to secure 3 points in their quest to reclaim top-spot in the Premier League table. And the Citizens subsequently went on to manage not only that this evening, but also to lay down a marker to the rest of the English top-fli...

N’Golo Kante needs time to adapt to new Chelsea role- Hazard

Hazard backs Kante in new role At Leicester City and at Chelsea under Antonio Conte, N’Golo Kante was perhaps the best holding midfielder in the world. So, when Maurizio Sarri took over as Chelsea boss, you would have expected Sarri to keep Kante in his preferred role. However, Sarri would opt to sign Jorginho from former club Napoli and play the Italian in the holding midfield spot. Given Kante’s quality, Sarri could not exactly leave the Frenchman out of the starting line-up. This forced Sarr...

Kante call put Sarri in this position but Chelsea criticism is unfair - Hasselbaink

Maurizio Sarri left himself open to criticism by tweaking N'Golo Kante's role at Chelsea, says Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, but questioning of the Italian in his debut campaign remains “unfair”. The 2018-19 campaign started positively enough for the new man at the Stamford Bridge helm, with an 18-game unbeaten run taken in on the back of a Community Shield defeat. Questions have been asked of Sarri's methods, with his decision to move World Cup winner Kante from a holding midfield pos...

Huddersfield, Sarri's big month, Jorginho, Clinical Higuain and Toxic Hazard - The Chelsea Daft Blog.

It's been a couple of days since Chelsea beat Huddersfield convincingly 5-0 with two goals each for Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain. Having lost heavily to Bournemouth a few days beforehand and with Manchester City on the horizon - it's important to not get carried away with what happened last Saturday afternoon. Don't get me wrong here, it was a good performance against Huddersfield and will get the players some of the confidence back as they prepare for the big game on Sunday. However, it's c...

N’Golo Kante won’t be Chelsea’s holding midfielder even if Jorginho is injured

Chelsea 5 – Huddersfield 0 How can Chelsea go from losing 4-0 at Bournemouth to beating Huddersfield 5-0? Maurizio Sarri’s men were full of smiles on Saturday in the Premier League. Gonzalo Higuain is off the mark in England following a brace against the Terriers. Eden Hazard was back to his magical best as the Belgian also scored twice last weekend. David Luiz wrapped up the win with a late header. View this post on Instagram ...

David Luiz set to agree a new Chelsea contract & the N’Golo Kante fake news story

David Luiz’s new Chelsea contract David Luiz’s contract with Chelsea expires in the summer. This season Luiz has been a virtual ever-present for Maurizio Sarri, however the Brazilian’s future has been in doubt. Yet according to Goal.com on Sunday, Luiz is finally set to agree a one-year contract extension at Stamford Bridge. Luiz’s deal fits into Chelsea’s existing contract structure for players who are over 30. Chelsea only award one-year deals to these senior players. While Luiz had reportedl...

Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea: Come and get it.

Us: Morata last minute injury, which left us with a false nine and a dubiously fit Beard on the bench. All the clamour, though, was around the fact that CHO got a start in a notable semi-final. A well-deserved start.  We survived the first minute; Huzzah. Promising early signs, even though it took them all of two minutes to try and get a penalty by cheating. The first effort from the slobbering moron was solidly saved by Kepa on 4, but we were by no means cowed and pathetic like the last ti...

Kante growing into new role with Chelsea

London (AFP) – N’Golo Kante insists he is finally growing into his new role in Chelsea’s midfield as the France star prepares for Wednesday’s clash with Southampton. Kante earned a reputation as the world’s best defensive midfielder after playing a key role in Chelsea and Leicester’s Premier League title triumphs, as well as France’s World Cup victory. But the 27-year-old has had to adapt to a change of position this season under new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri. Sarri, who replaced Antonio C...

Crystal Palace 0-1 Chelsea: Oh my god is that Victor Moses?

In the News: Someone called Eddie has apparently announced to the whole world that Pusilic is on his way to us, in the meantime people in Germany are trying to buy Hudson-Odoi. Hummels to us is doing the rounds, as are tales of departures for Cesc and Morata. And Luiz locked himself out of his hotel room. That’s the best I can do given I’ve been in a chocolate/gin coma and we only played five minutes ago. The Others: Aboubakar Kamara caused a big stink against Ranieri’s wishes to take a p...
