Chelsea are atypical of Jose Mourinho teams, but they continue to win

QPR manager Harry Redknapp believes Chelsea will win the Premier League title.

After the supreme start Chelsea made to this season, the ending of their match at Manchester United was all the more striking. It was also someway out of place, if not out of time.

The sloppy concession of a potentially costly 93rd-minute equaliser certainly didn't chime with the aura of utter assurance Jose Mourinho's side have given off.

Of course, for all the singular drama of a late goal, they can be looked at one of two ways. The first is that they are no more than isolated moments that...

Bad blood between Chelsea & QPR adds to the tension ahead of Saturday

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Diego Costa is available against QPR but his fitness will be handled with caution.

Of the three possible opponents that Chelsea could face in a West London derby, matches against Queens Park Rangers have always been the most fiercely contested.

Fulham supporters might exclaim their hatred for the Blues, yet the acrimony has only ever been projected one way. Even though it is the most frequently played fixture between the four clubs in the locality, the Cottagers have rarely been in direct competition for neighbourhood bragging rights for genuine enmity to flow between both sets...

Chelsea's Didier Drogba proves that he can still be a dangerous striker

ESPN FC's Craig Burley reacts to Jose Mourinho's constant complaining about Spain's apparent overuse of Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

When Jose Mourinho elected to bring Didier Drogba back to Stamford Bridge in July, Chelsea supporters reacted with an even mix of joy and concern.

"He's coming because he's one of the best strikers in Europe," proclaimed Mourinho as Drogba signed a one-year contract. "I know his personality very well and I know if he comes back he's not protected by history or what he's done for this club previously. He is coming with the mentality to make more history."

Effusive words from the Special One, however...

Player Ratings: Shrewsbury Town make it a match with Chelsea

ESPN FC's Craig Burley reacts to Jose Mourinho's constant complaining about Spain's apparent overuse of Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

Chelsea made heavy weather of beating Shrewsbury Town in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup in Shropshire.

No doubt the Blues will point to a number of mitigating factors for the narrow 2-1 scoreline against the League Two side, yet they will be relieved that the game was done and dusted before extra time and that pride was just about retained. Coming just 48 hours after the 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford there was some understandable sluggishness from the four players who...

Revival of Man Utd late show on display in last-gasp draw with Chelsea

Robin van Persie's stoppage-time strike saw 10-man Chelsea settle for a 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

MANCHESTER, England -- It was once a Manchester United trademark that might now be returning to commission. Two Dutchman have revived the United late show: Robin van Persie's injury-time strike against Chelsea followed Daley Blind's 87th-minute equaliser at West Bromwich Albion on Monday.

Slowly but surely, Louis van Gaal is changing United for the better. Last season, a sight of meek surrender was all too common. Former manager David Moyes could not inspire rescue situations, let alone win matches...

Player Ratings: Drogba rolls back the years but Chelsea done by Dowd

Didier Drogba opened the scoring in Chelsea's 1-0 win at Manchester United before ref Phil Dowd sent off Branislav Ivanovic in the lead-up to Robin van Persie's equaliser.

For many Chelsea supporters, referee Phil Dowd had an Oscar-winning performance as the villainous man in black during the 1-1 draw at Manchester United. Lumbering around the pitch waving yellow cards with impunity, he booked six Blues players including Branislav Ivanovic, who was sent off late on with the free-kick conceded on Angel Di Maria leading to Robin van Persie's late equaliser.

Dowd's influence on the outcome of the game should not be underestimated given that he also appeared to be suffering...
