Blues head coach Maurizio Sarri became the latest person to condemn the social media abuse directed towards Chelsea Women midfielder Karen Carney.
Chelsea’s Karen Carney has spoken out against the abuse she received on social media, calling it abhorrent and upsetting before calling on the pertinent authorities to take action and ensure it does not happen to anyone again.
England recorded their first away win against Spain for the first time in over 30 years on Monday night thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford in a 3-2 victory. Two Chelsea players started in the five-goal thriller with Marcos Alonso at left-back for the hosts and Ross Barkley in the box-to-box midfielder role for the visitors.
Cesc Fabregas urges the need for Chelsea to take more risks and become more ruthless despite a strong start to the 2018-2019 campaign.
Paul Merson believes Eden Hazard is currently the outstanding player in the Premier League but says the Belgian ace will only be considered in the same bracket as Lionel Messi if he improves on his consistency.
In comments that may invite backlash from fans of former club Arsenal, Olivier Giroud has claimed that Chelsea are the top team in England.
Maurizio Sarri has tipped an already superb Eden Hazard to become even better for Chelsea, claiming the Belgian ace needs to realise the importance of moving from fun to reaping the rewards of tremendous performances this season.
Bolo Zenden has claimed Eden Hazard needs to leave Chelsea in order to be regarded as one of the best players in the world.
Maurizio Sarri has provided an insight into his meticulous approach for preparing matches, declaring he disregards the outside world to get full immersion in his tactical work.
Eden Hazard’s form so far this season has been nothing short of phenomenal, but such good performances bring more and more transfer rumours. The only side he is being linked to at the moment is Real Madrid, the same club that have been sniffing around the Belgian for a few years, and the player himself hasn’t ruled himself out of a future move.
However, over the last week, Hazard has admitted that he won’t leave Stamford Bridge in January regardless of any concrete offers that his current employers might receive. The pint-sized wizard has said most recently that he will only leave the Blues “on good terms”, alluding to the fact that he will not force them into a sale.
He claimed that he was not allowed to leave West London following his sparkling World Cup showing, “Chelsea were clear to me, I could not leave, I accepted it,” he explained to Telefoot. “Leaving or staying, I knew I was going to be happy. I do not regret at all.
“I will never clash with a club. If I leave Chelsea, I will leave on good terms.”
It sounded almost like an indirect dig at his international team-mate, Thibaut Courtois, who left the club under a cloud of smoke over the summer. The towering goalkeeper went behind the back of the Chelsea officials and used the 12 months left on his contract to force through a move to the Spanish capital.
After agreeing a six-year contract with Los Blancos, the former Atletico shot-stopper made it clear that he wanted Hazard to follow him and while he still might, it didn’t materialise straight away. The current Premier League leading scorer has said that he won’t jump into a decision whether it be over a new deal with Chelsea or a transfer to Real Madrid but it certainly looks like he’ll see out the 2018/19 campaign in London.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has revealed that he hopes to see striker Alvaro Morata shed more tears of joy this season. The Spanish international netted the only of the game during the Blues’ 1-0 Europa League victory against Hungarian outfit Videoton last week.
Cesc Fabregas has declared he feels revitalised under Maurizio Sarri before adding that he is very open about extending his current deal with Chelsea beyond the end of the current campaign.
Ross Barkley believes it is fair to say that Chelsea are title challengers this season, saying that the squad containing players who have won it before makes them capable for a shot at the Premier League trophy.
Alan Shearer believes Ross Barkley understands the game more now under Maurizio Sarri while also claiming that playing with quality teammates has also helped the Chelsea midfielder.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has revealed his delight at making his first start in a Chelsea shirt since January 2017.
Since arriving from Fiorentina in August 2016, Marcos Alonso has been running riot across Chelsea’s left flank. Under Antonio Conte, the Blues played a disciplined type of football yet the Spaniard, who assumed a wing-back role, has always found a way to bomb forward and contribute on the offensive phase, an approach that saw him amass six goals and three assists on the way to the Blues’ title march in 2016-2017.
Andreas Christensen has expressed his disappointment regarding his current situation at Chelsea, saying that he may seek to move to pastures new if he does not get to play significant minutes on the pitch.
