Unsung Willian still with room to improve

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner feels Jose Mourinho's comments are to fire up his players following the continued influx of money being spent by Premier League clubs, but Craig Burley is not surprised that clubs are now "buying titles."

Within Chelsea's squad over the last few years, by far the most competitive area has concerned the attacking midfield. The high turnover of players in that department and the myriad options for successive managers has formed the basis for the new approach in Chelsea's play -- one based upon craft and finesse in place of power and force of will.

Despite the constant churn of options behind the main striker, some constants remain. Eden Hazard has risen to become the most dazzling individual at the...

Rivals battle for English starlet

Chelsea have risked Everton's wrath with a very public pursuit of John Stones, though it seems Jose Mourinho is not the only Premier League coach interested in the 21-year-old centre-back.

Stones and Rahman interest sparks new debate about Chelsea academy

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho insists that his team 'don't have fragilities', and don't need any other players ahead of the new Premier League season.

Having followed up long-rumoured interest in promising Everton and England centre-back John Stones with a £20 million bid, as that negotiation process plays out, Chelsea are now focussing attention on the left-back squad berth freed up by the impending sale of Filipe Luis back to Atletico Madrid.

Despite arriving at Stamford Bridge with a solid reputation and impeccable credentials as a La Liga winner with Atleti, Luis failed to usurp Cesar Azpilicueta from Blues boss Jose Mourinho's first...

John Stones should consider Chelsea switch to boost England prospects

The ESPN FC team analyse Jose Mourinho and Roberto Martinez's war of words in regards to recent reports linking Chelsea with John Stones.
Everton defender John Stones has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer.
Everton defender John Stones has been linked with a move to Chelsea this summer.

Everton's John Stones has been earmarked as a long-term successor for Chelsea captain John Terry at Stamford Bridge and it was reported the Blues had a £20 million bid for the England international rejected last week.

Given his current ability and potential to improve, it's no shock Everton are not prepared to entertain offers below the £30m mark for Stones, while Gary Cahill says the youngster should consider a move to Stamford Bridge.

Of players aged 21 or under, Stones was WhoScored.com's...

Chelsea will be reliant on youth and fringe players without further signings

The ESPN FC panel discuss Jose Mourinho's comments on the transfer market, where clubs are now spending millions on players.

It is a truism of modern football that a team must strengthen or risk being left behind. For those that have achieved their primary goal in the previous campaign, the need to evolve is even more vital to avoid any complacency setting in and to maintain a healthy competition for places as they bid to restate their superiority over their rivals.

It is therefore extremely surprising to hear Jose Mourinho's comments that -- with the exception of the approach for Everton's John Stones -- he is not seeking...
