Chelsea captain John Terry should 'stay and play' - Deco

The ESPN FC crew have little faith in Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte sending their squads out to attack on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge, but will Diego Costa steal the show like he did last season?
ESPN FC's Craig Burley says with the shortage of defenders, it's natural Chelsea are eyeing up Alessio Romagnoli.

Former Chelsea midfielder Deco has told the London Evening Standard that John Terry should return to the side as he is "a true captain" and "one of the best I have ever played with."

Terry, 35, suffered an ankle injury in Sept. 11's 2-2 draw with Swansea but was an unused substitute in last weekend's 3-0 win over Leicester, with boss Antonio Conte keeping faith with Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill and David Luiz in his new 3-4-3 formation.

Former Porto, Barcelona and Portugal star Deco, though, suggested...

Chelsea to pay tribute to Matthew Harding on 20th anniversary of death

The ESPN FC crew have little faith in Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte sending their squads out to attack on Sunday.

Chelsea will pay tribute to Matthew Harding at Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester United on the weekend that marks 20 years since his death.

Harding, a businessman and Chelsea supporter who invested £26.5 million in the club, died in a helicopter crash as he returned from a match at Bolton Wanderers in 1996.

He had responded to an appeal for funds by chairman Ken Bates in 1994 and was rewarded with a seat on the board.

His investment funded the construction of the new North Stand...

Juventus' Gonzalo Higuain desperate to score vs. AC Milan, Donnarumma

Miralem Pjanic says history wasn't on his mind as Juve defeated his former club Lyon.

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is hoping it will be a case of third time lucky when he faces AC Milan and teenage goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on Saturday.

While wearing the Azzurri shirt of Napoli last season, Higuain, 28, failed to beat the then 16-year-old Donnarumma in two meetings, despite scoring a total of 36 Serie A goals that campaign.

That haul saw the Argentina international score at least one goal against every club in Serie A, other than Milan and Roma, and he intends to make up...

Jose Mourinho 'had his own players' at Chelsea - Victor Moses

The ESPN FC crew have little faith in Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte sending their squads out to attack on Sunday.

LONDON -- Victor Moses believes Jose Mourinho exiled him at Chelsea because "he had his own players" and said he is delighted that new head coach Antonio Conte has given him a second chance to prove himself at Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho will return to the home of his former club as Manchester United manager for the first time on Sunday, while in-form Moses is expected to keep his place in the Chelsea starting XI on the right of Conte's new 3-4-3 formation.

It has been a remarkable turnaround in fortunes...

Steven Gerrard: Liverpool captaincy means you need to have a thick skin

Jurgen Klopp has stressed that his side must be angry in their style of play, but remain patient against West Brom.
Jurgen Klopp is adamant that there are no easy games in the Premier League and expects another tough match with West Brom.

Steven Gerrard has revealed the emotional toll it took on him to be Liverpool captain for 12 years.

Gerrard is the longest-serving captain in the club's history, taking on the armband in October 2003 before departing for LA Galaxy last summer.

And the 36-year-old, writing in the newly-published book "Liverpool Captains" said he always embraced the role despite the intense scrutiny and punishing blows it brought.

"You need to be thick-skinned to be captain," Gerrard said. "Before you accept the responsibility...
