Chelsea

 By Phil Lythell

With crowded schedule ahead, Chelsea's fringe players must step up

Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho says the professional attitude of his players has been a highlight for him this season.

With Premier League fixtures now coming thick and fast in the always congested month of December, the need to rotate players becomes essential for Chelsea.

Although stable and consistent team selection usually forms the bedrock for success, the physical demands of English football and the truncated rest periods between matches mean that it is not just serial lineup tweakers such Claudio Ranieri and Rafael Benitez that see the virtues of tinkering with the team.

Although having had his hand forced...

Business as usual as Fabregas and Hazard lead Chelsea to victory

ESPN FC's Craig Burley examines whether or not Chelsea can win the quadruple this year.

Chelsea booked their place in the semi-final of the Capital One Cup with a relatively comfortable 3-1 win over Derby County.

Jose Mourinho's fondness for this competition was reflected in his starting line up that featured several heavy hitters even if first team regulars Diego Costa, Willian and Branislav Ivanovic were left on the bench. Their individual superiority was evident when Eden Hazard showed class and composure to open the scoring after excellent pressure from the visitors forced Richard...

1. Chelsea count cost of victory

The difference between the best and the rest is the ability to devour chances. Two half-chances and two goals took Chelsea beyond the reach of Derby County. Eden Hazard and Felipe Luis scored strikes of the highest Premier class to fire Jose Mourinho's team to the Capital One Cup semifinals.

There was a late scare via Craig Bryson's raking finish and the thrilling...

Chelsea wary of a PSG side out for revenge in Champions League

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden contends that Chelsea has better chemistry in midfield than PSG.

Monday's Champions League last-16 draw paired Chelsea with Paris Saint-Germain, a repeat of last season's quarterfinal that saw the Blues prevail courtesy of the away goals ruling. On that occasion, the reigning Ligue 1 champions had seemingly done enough to protect a 3-1 lead from the first leg played at Parc des Princes, but a dramatic late goal from Demba Ba gave Jose Mourinho's team a 2-0 victory in the return leg at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho ran down the touchline to celebrate with his players...

Champions League round-of-16 draw pits familiar foes against one another

The ESPN FC panel discuss which teams can be considered Champions League favourites and whether Mourinho would rather win the Premier League or the Champions League.

It is a remarkable that, for a competition that now hasn't seen a repeat winner for 25 years, we still see so much repetition in the Champions League knockout rounds.

This year's last-16 draw features three ties that took place last season alone, as well as a restaging of the 1997 final. There also are similar features: Real Madrid got an easy draw, Bayern Munich should waltz through and it's difficult to escape the feeling that we're going to see the ongoing trend of all the teams who were first...
