WIL POWER

CALLUM WILSON is the latest strike target for Chelsea after the £35m-rated attacker impressing for Bournemouth.

But will he be an upgrade on current Blues’ forwards Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud?

UNSTUCK TOFFEES

EDEN HAZARD looks set to return to the starting line-up for Chelsea in the Premier League and hope he will be back to his devastating self once again.

Alvaro Morata is also expected to return after Olivier Giroud was preferred in the Europa League.

RUBEN RIDDLE

RUBEN LOFTUS-CHEEK’S unimpressive display against BATE Borisov showed that he may not have consistency to become a firm Chelsea regular.

The England star scored a hat-trick in the reverse leg two weeks ago, but was anonymous in Belarus.

TERRYFIC

DECLAN RICE has revealed how a 45-minute phone call from Chelsea legend John Terry turned him into one of the brightest talents in the Premier League.

The West Ham ace is currently embroiled in a tug-of-war over whether to play for England or Republic of Ireland – but was dumped by the Blues academy as a schoolboy.

BEST BA NONE

CHELSEA legend Didier Drogba has hung up the boots on his playing career – but ended it with a defeat for Phoenix Rising.

The 40-year-old has played for the Arizona-based side since 2017, a team he also co-owns – but could not help them to victory in the USL Cup over Louisville City.

‘DROSS BARKLEY’

BLUES fans are unhappy with Ross Barkley’s performance against BATE Borisov in the Europa League – and are calling for Mateo Kovacic to feature more.

The England international played the full 90 minutes in Belarus as Chelsea could only muster a 1-0 win.

FEK OFF

CHELSEA and Liverpool target Nabil Fekir reportedly expects to leave Lyon next summer.

L’Equipe claims the French World Cup winner will not renew his contract with the club as he approaches the final year of his deal.

ANGRY KANTE

N’GOLO KANTE has long been seen as one of the shyest footballers in the game and rarely loses his cool.

But the Chelsea star could not help himself after rage quitting FIFA 19 following defeat to Callum Hudson-Odoi.

BAK FOR GOOD

TIEMOUE BAKAYOKO could be returning to London – but not finishing the season at Chelsea.

The Frenchman has endured a difficult loan spell at AC Milan and Fulham are willing to take him on if he returns from Italy.

BLUE PRINT

CHELSEA are now the only unbeaten side in Europe’s top five leagues this season.

They were tied for the honour with Juventus – but Manchester United’s late victory in Turin meant the Blues are the only team left without a defeat.

HANDS OFF

BAYER LEVERKUSEN have issued a hands-off warning to Europe’s big boys chasing Leon Bailey.

The 21-year-old has revealed Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City have all expressed an interest in signing him.


COM TOGETHER

BARCELONA forward Malcom has ended any rumours to Chelsea after revealing that he wants to stay and create history at the club.

The Brazilian netted his first goal for the club in their Champions League tie against Inter Milan, having struggled since his £37.3m from Bordeaux in the summer.

LOFTY AMBITION

WEST HAM want to sign Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan from the Blues in January, but the move has been blocked by Maurizio Sarri.

The England midfielder struggled with game-time at the start of the season – yet has four goals in his last four matches.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

FRANK LAMPARD and John Terry will fight it out to take Blues youngster Ethan Ampadu on loan.

The 18-year-old has just returned from injury, and could seek a temporary spell for game time with Derby County and Aston Villa interested.

GET HIM IC

BLUES fans want Mauro Icardi at Stamford Bridge after his impressive Champions League displays against Tottenham and Barcelona.

The Inter Milan striker has netted three times in Europe this season – along with six in the league.

BLUES’ BIG CAL

CHELSEA are pondering a winter move for in-form Callum Wilson – who earned his first England call-up yesterday.

The England hopeful has been sensational for Bournemouth this season, scoring seven goals and assisting another four.
