Mourinho must guard against complacency against Maribor minnows

Jose Mourinho and Nemanja Matic spoke on Monday ahead of Chelsea's Champions League tie with Maribor at Stamford Bridge on Tueday.

Following an impressive victory in the weekend's turbulent London derby at a raucous Selhurst Park in which Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock characteristically lost all perspective in his myopic post-match analysis, Chelsea return to the more sophisticated environs of the Champions League.

Next up for the Blues are Slovenian champions Maribor, though while they might not be the one of the more famous names in European football, they should certainly not be taken lightly. Tuesday night's fixture...

Questions answered as Chelsea's march to glory continues

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his team are better than last season and could win the league.

"We're top of the league. We're top of the league. We're top of the league." The chant, which started shortly after Cesc Fabregas had completed a breathtakingly beautiful move by crashing the ball into the Crystal Palace net, was repetitive, amusing and continued by Chelsea supporters well beyond the final whistle at Selhurst Park.

It was Fabregas' first Premier League goal for the Blues, and with it the Spain international became the 10th Chelsea player to score in the league this season. No other...

Player ratings: Oscar sparks Chelsea's tight win over Crystal Palace

Tempers flared in Chelsea's seventh win of the season, as Azpilicueta and Delaney saw red.

Chelsea remain five points clear at the top of the Premier League table after a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace.

Stunning goals from Oscar and Cesc Fabregas sealed the win though they owe a huge debt of gratitude to Palace defender Damien Delaney. Within a minute of Chelsea being reduced to 10 men after Cesar Azpilicueta deservedly received a straight red card for a reckless challenge on Mile Jedinak, the home side's numerical advantage was thrown away. The Irishman's idiotic tug on Loic Remy earned him...

Three Points: Crystal Palace vs. Chelsea

Tempers flared in Chelsea's seventh win of the season, as Azpilicueta and Delaney saw red.

LONDON -- A trio of thoughts on Chelsea's 2-1 win vs. Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

1. Chelsea prevail without their talisman

No Diego Costa and, while you wouldn't quite say there were no problems for Chelsea, there was at least no drop-off as Jose Mourinho's side made it 22 points from 24 this season to stay five clear of Manchester City.

Chelsea had to dig in and battle their way to victory in this match of two red cards. They ultimately showed enough finesse to go with that...

No room for complacency as Chelsea seek to reign at Palace

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he regrets pushing Jose Mourinho during Arsenal's visit to Stamford Bridge.

The resumption of the Premier League this weekend sees Chelsea travel across London for a derby game with Crystal Palace. The Blues may be unbeaten and have a five-point cushion at the top of the table, but manager Jose Mourinho, his players and the club's travelling supporters will be taking nothing for granted at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Selhurst is one of those old-school football grounds that visiting supporters love as much as the players they are cheering on hate. Compact, with a capacity...

Nemanja Matic a crucial cog in the Chelsea machine

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he regrets pushing Jose Mourinho during Arsenal's visit to Stamford Bridge.

Diego Costa might be scoring the goals and Cesc Fabregas might be supplying the assists. Eden Hazard might be conjuring the tricks and manager Jose Mourinho might be uttering the soundbites. But away from the headline-makers there is another in the Chelsea squad that is playing an equally important, if less celebrated, role.

Nemanja Matic has been nothing short of a revelation since his return to the club in January and has established himself as not only the lynchpin around which the rest of...
