Chelsea's players fail to build on a fine start and exit the FA Cup

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho spoke to the press following his side's stunning loss to Bradford City in the FA Cup, and noted that this defeat was one of the worst he had ever endured as a manager.

Having eased into a 2-0 lead courtesy of a flicked goal from Gary Cahill that was reminiscent of Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola's legendary strike against Norwich City, as well as a decent effort from Ramires, it seemed like passage to the fifth round of the FA Cup was secure, but Bradford had other ideas and responded to win 4-2.

The first real sign that Jose Mourinho was not happy came in the 70th minute when he took off the ineffective John Obi Mikel and Mohamed Salah and sent on Cesc Fabregas...

Chelsea must get job done vs. Bradford with Manchester City looming

Fiorentina head coach Vincenzo Montella denies Juan Cuadrado is set for a move to Premier League side Chelsea.

Amid the cascade of glamorous, high-stakes fixtures with Liverpool and Manchester City comes a lower-profile yet still significant meeting between Chelsea and Bradford City in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Nothing is more important than trophies to owner Roman Abramovich,...

Jose Mourinho: Why does he keep baiting Chelsea's fans?

Jose Mourinho admits that he was left frustrated by Chelsea's 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semifinal.

Once might have been an accident. Twice, perhaps, would just be carelessness, or bad luck. Three times is something different. Three times is a pattern. Three times makes you wonder. It is a question there may not be an answer to, but it feels now as though it had better be asked. Just why does Jose Mourinho keep baiting Chelsea's fans?

This is a sufficiently delicate subject that it is worth approaching cautiously. To recap: after Chelsea beat Queens Park Rangers 2-1 in November, Mourinho claimed...

Chelsea's draw at Liverpool proof that Mourinho's title plans are on track

Jose Mourinho admits that he was left frustrated by Chelsea's 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semifinal.

Jose Mourinho's post-match demeanour said it all. The sometimes irascible, often provocative, always engaging Chelsea manager was a picture of control in the aftermath of his team's 1-1 draw at Liverpool.

Essentially, the match had gone according...
