Striker shuffle

A busy transfer window saw Chelsea allow Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o all leave the club as Jose Mourinho pursued more effective options, with these three having managed only 19 league goals between them.

Remy was was one of three new strikers to arrive at Stamford Bridge this summer along with the in-form Diego Costa and former Chelsea hero Didier Drogba. The striker shuffle appears to have had an immediate impact with Chelsea scoring 10 goals in their opening three games making them joint league leaders with Swansea, their next opponents.

Medical fears

Fears about Remy's fitness were triggered following reports that the striker failed a medical at Liverpool. There were concerns over a supposed heart condition, but Mourinho isn't worried about his new striker.

"We don't have Liverpool's report," said Mourinho. "In this club, medical responsibilities start with Dr (Paco) Biosca.

"He did his job, not on his own, surrounded by opinions from top specialists in different areas, and the conclusion was the same as France's medical department had before the World Cup, that the player has no problem."
