Sarri Makes Chelsea History In Premier League With Burnley Win

Maurizio Sarri has become the first Chelsea manager to go unbeaten in his first 10 Premier League games after the Blues thumped Burnley 4-0 on Sunday. Goals from Alvaro Morata, Ross Barkley, Willian and Ruben Loftus-Cheek moved the Blues to within two points of leaders Liverpool, and earned Sarri a slice of history. No Blues manager had ever avoided defeat for their first 10 Premier League games, with the former Napoli boss the first to do so. Chelsea have won seven of their opening 10 games, beating Huddersfield,…

EPL: Chelsea Lose 100% Record At West Ham

Chelsea dropped their first Premier League points after a frustrating London derby at West Ham. The visitors enjoyed 71% of possession at London Stadium, but failed to score for the first time this season. Despite seeing little of the ball, West Ham had the best chance to win it as Robert Snodgrass picked out the unmarked Andriy Yarmolenko on 78 minutes, but the Ukrainian sent his header wide. Second-half substitute Alvaro Morata almost made an instant impact for Chelsea, but he was unable to steer the ball past…

Spain national team coach, Julen Lopetegui, on Monday announced his 23-man squad ahead of the 2018 FIFA Russia World Cup with Chelsea's trio Cesc Fabregas, Alvaro Morata and Marco Alonso being key omissions.

Dele Alli Scores Twice As Spurs Break Chelsea Hoodoo

Dele Alli scored twice as Tottenham came from behind to claim a first league win at Stamford Bridge in 28 years and deliver a huge blow to Chelsea's hopes of finishing in the Premier League top four. A win would have moved the Blues to within two points of fourth-placed Tottenham and, after soaking up some Spurs pressure, they took the lead when Alvaro Morata headed in Victor Moses' cross. But Tottenham levelled just before the break, as Christian Eriksen hit a fierce, dipping effort from 25 yards that dropped just…

Hazard Not A False Nine – Belgium Manager

Roberto Martinez, manager of the Belgium national team, says midfielder Eden Hazard is not being utilized in his best position at Chelsea. Speaking during a press conference ahead of Belgium’s friendly game against Saudi Arabia next week, the former Wigan manager said he will not make the same mistake of playing Hazard in a wrong position. Hazard has often been used as false nine rather than his rather preferred position on the wing, for the Blues' attack in the 2017-18 season, with Alvaro Morata struggling for form,…

Bellerin Stoppage Time Strike Salvages Point For Arsenal In Stunning London Derby

Hector Bellerin's stoppage time strike secured a point for Arsenal against Chelsea in an entertaining fixture at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night. Jack Wilshere put Arsenal ahead in the 63rd minute after a nice build up by the Gunners, driving home a powerful shot inside the 18-yard box. The strike was the midfielder’s first goal in 43 Premier League matches, with his last against West Brom in May 2015. But Arsenal's lead lasted just four minutes as the visitors were awarded a controversial penalty after…

Morata Scores Winner As Chelsea Defeat Man United

Alvaro Morata scored his first goal since September as Chelsea deservedly beat Manchester United to move a point behind the Red Devils in the Premier League. Morata escaped the attentions of United's defenders to find yards of space and beat goalkeeper David de Gea from Cesar Azpilicueta's cross in the 55th minute. It was another unproductive away day for United and manager Jose Mourinho after a goalless draw at Liverpool and loss to Huddersfield Town, leaving them eight points adrift of leaders Manchester City, who…

Worry For Conte As N’Golo Kante Faces Three Weeks Out
