Cesc Fabregas escapes big ban for Chelsea as common sense prevails

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho criticised referee Mike Jones after sending off Cesc Fabregas for violent conduct in the match against West Brom.

It is not a phrase uttered often these days but the Football Association have applied a piece of common sense regarding Cesc Fabregas' bizarre red card against West Brom on Monday night, reducing the suspension to just one match.

The decision to truncate the Spaniard's ban emanated from the Independent Regulatory Commission, who clearly agreed with the wider football world and accepted Chelsea's appeal against what they saw as excessive punishment.

Given some of the wild challenges that have failed...

Mourinho preparing Chelsea for silly season as transfer window looms

The ESPN FC panel talk about the best and the worst transfers in the Premier League this season.

It's been a great season for Chelsea. Jose Mourinho's quest for silverware yielded the greatest prize of all, the Premier League title, and the Portuguese also masterminded glory at Wembley in the Capital One Cup final. Owner Roman Abramovich has been all smiles at Stamford Bridge of late, a sign the Russian is pleased with what his manager has achieved since rehiring him almost two years ago.

Far from being satisfied, though, Abramovich will want more next term. He will also task Mourinho with...

Jose Mourinho is a serial winner and master of the Premier League

The Blues manager insists he didn't give his players four days off, but catered to the needs of his players recuperation accordingly.
This season Jose Mourinho guided Chelsea to their fourth Premier League title and the 22nd trophy of his career.

LONDON -- Jose Mourinho's eyes got tighter and his mood suddenly more tenacious. It was the manager's usual Friday press conference, this time on the eve of Chelsea's April 0-0 draw with Arsenal, but he was initially doing something many would consider unusual for him.

Sitting behind a desk conspicuously placed so that the attending media must look up to him, Mourinho was trying to be magnanimous about longtime rival Arsene Wenger. Then, the offending question came, and the small room in the club's...

Champions Chelsea out for one last hurrah before summer of changes

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho hopes for Petr Cech to stay and admitted he would retract his comments regarding the refereeing 'campaign' against Chelsea.

The champagne has been on ice at Stamford Bridge since May 3, when Chelsea secured the Premier League title with a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace. Three weeks on, and after the final game of the season against Sunderland on Sunday, John Terry -- Chelsea's captain, leader and legend -- will again get to lift above his head the most challenging trophy to win in world football.

The bubbly will be nicely chilled, and the denizens of the Bridge will be in a celebratory mood. But will those renowned...

Chelsea win Premier League, but which season has been the greatest ever?

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has criticised his side's title rivals for failing to provide a decent challenge this season.

It's hardly the climax to the season that was promised, or one that seemed to have been set up. At one point in the second half of the 2014-15 campaign, Chelsea and Manchester City were dead level in every respect. The race for the Champions League involved minimal differences among a quartet of clubs, and it looked like there could be as many as eight sides trying to avoid three relegation spots.

But Chelsea have won the title with games to spare, the top four is decided and there's just one matter...

Departing Chelsea stars Petr Cech and Didier Drogba two of the club's best

Petr Cech and Didier Drogba defined Jose Mourinho's first spell at Chelsea and will be missed when they leave.

The great team-builders can also be unsentimental destroyers of a favourite landscape. They have to take a bulldozer to their own handiwork. Sir Alex Ferguson was capable of being utterly ruthless, airbrushing Mark Hughes, Paul Ince and Andrei Kanchelskis from the picture in the space of a summer that marked the brutal breakup of his first great Manchester United side. David Beckham, Roy Keane and Ruud van Nistelrooy were footballing skyscrapers, but Ferguson tore them down too so he could build...
