Swansea City expecting to face Kanté and Matić; should Chelsea start Fàbregas instead?

Swansea City expecting to face Kanté and Matić; should Chelsea start Fàbregas instead?

And Kanté of course. Not just Fàbregas by himself. That’d be silly. I’m jumping the gun a little bit here with regards to possible team selections for Saturday’s match against Swansea City, but there are a few mildly interesting quotes making the rounds from Swans midfielder Leroy Fer, he of the “tackle” on Gary Cahill that played such a crucial role in Chelsea dropping points in Wales earlier in the season, which may be worthy of a quick look. “Kante and Matic, it's one of the best midfields in the league, if not the best.” “They are strong, you can see how good Kante...

Tottenham Hotspur auctioning off Ryan Mason warm-up shirts for charity

All proceeds will benefit a charity that supports people affected by brain injuries.

Mason, a Tottenham academy graduate who was sold to Hull City at the end of the summer transfer window, was seriously injured after a head to head collision with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill in a match.

Chelsea's Gary Cahill cites Burnley draw as wake-up call for league leaders

Antonio Conte laments Chelseas inability to maintain their winning position against Burnley at Turf Moor. BURNLEY -- Gary Cahill believes Chelseas 1-1 draw with Burnley should be a little wake-up call for everyone who believes that Antonio Contes men are certain to win the Premier League title this season. Robbie Bradys spectacular free kick cancelled out Pedro Rodriguezs clinical early finish as both teams struggled with the weather conditions at Turf Moor, with Chelsea ultimately extending their lead at the top of the Premier League to 10 points despite being held to only their third...
Cahill on Burnley wake-up call: ‘We know we can play better than that’

Cahill on Burnley wake-up call: ‘We know we can play better than that’

One game closer to the end of the season and a Premier League title. Chelsea matchday captain Gary Cahill has been a regular in post-match interviews all season and Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Burnley was no different. This time, Cahill stopped to talk with Chelsea TV, which you can watch over on the official Chelsea website. A draw at Burnley sounds pretty disappointing on the face of it, but considering the Clarets’ bizarrely excellent home form, it could be looked as a decent result, especially as it still increased Chelsea’s lead at the top of the league for at least 24 hours until...

Chelsea name same starting lineup for Premier League game against Burnley

With a massive 28 points at Turf Moor so far, Sean Dyche believes his Burnley side could spring an upset when Chelsea visit.

Arsenal's Petr Cech offered support to Hull's Ryan Mason after head injury

Julien Laurens believes Arsene Wenger would sign any deal offered to him, regardless of his recent lack of success. Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has revealed he offered Ryan Mason his support after the Hull City midfielder fractured his skull last month. Mason sustained the injury during his sides 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Jan. 22 after clashing heads with Gary Cahill and spent eight days in hospital before eventually being released. Cech went through a similar experience when he suffered a depressed fracture to his skull in 2006 while playing for Chelsea against Reading and has opted to wear...
Gary Cahill happy to ‘put things right’ with Hazard wondergoal and win over Arsenal

Gary Cahill happy to ‘put things right’ with Hazard wondergoal and win over Arsenal

When Arsenal beat Chelsea 3-0 back in September, not in our wildest dreams would we have imaged that we would be opening up a 12-point lead (if only temporarily) at the top of the table by beating the same Gunners by almost the same scoreline in early February. Yet here we are doing just that. Isn’t football wonderful? Gary Cahill certainly thinks so. "It was fantastic. In football you get the opportunity to put things right. I remember the feeling after we got off the field at Arsenal and we were determined to put things right. We did just that.” Since that loss, Chelsea have now...

Chelsea pay tribute to departing legend Branislav Ivanovic

For a fair while, our Twitter tagline used to be "Ivanovic is great, shut up".  He'll always be great to us. Alas, all great things must come to an end, and after nine years a Chelsea, Branislav Ivanovic left to join Zenit St. Petersburg during the winter transfer window.  Chelsea confirmed the transfer earlier today, and led the tributes as well with several posts on the official website as well as the wonderful video you can see above. There's also a short (but free!) video of Gary Cahill and Nemanja Matic saying goodbye on the official website, and that's well worth a watch as well....
