Chelsea's Abramovich, Arsenal's Usmanov lose millions in 48 hours

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly lost $449.5 million in 48 hours.

Roman Abramovich, Alisher Usmanov and Dmitry Rybolovlev -- involved with Chelsea, Arsenal and Monaco respectively -- all lost 100s of millions of dollars in a matter of days this week as a result of Russia's current economic troubles.

PSG boss Laurent Blanc defended by Youri Djorkaeff over 'too nice' jibe

PSG manager Laurent Blanc believes Chelsea are a stronger side than last season, but explains his side are continuing to improve as the season progresses.

Ligue 1 is the most exciting title race in Europe at the moment

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

The French are not known for being particularly good at suspense. We are quite a predictable bunch as my British wife will often remind me.

Our back catalogue of films consist of many a twisted love story with a psychological edge, our best writers philosophize and give social commentary and our general elections are a one horse race where politicians make predictable comebacks. However our football is different. We've done suspense pretty well over the last few years, even more so this year.
