Presumably you’ve landed on this tiny space of internet with the expectation of finding a round-up on your beloved club. If that’s the case then you’ve come to exactly the right place.
Below we’ve detailed the biggest stories of the day, including a bit of fluff to help you digest. Read on, watch the video above and leave thoughts and opinions in the box provided when possible.
Mourinho's top four
It will certainly seem strange to some, but Jose Mourinho has been told his position as Chelsea’s manager is safe, so long as he can orchestrate a top four finish.
The Special One is under obvious pressure at Stamford Bridge given his side’s slow start to the season and was involved in a so-called crisis meeting after the weekend loss to Southampton.
However, the London Evening Standard claim that Mourinho’s second coming in west London will remain a feature, so long as the club’s chances of a top-four finish aren’t in jeopardy.
Quite the fall in expectation for the reigning Premier League champions, we’re sure you’ll agree.
Meanwhile, Radamel Falcao remains confident that the Blues can engineer a turnaround, saying he and his teammates have the capacity to reverse things.
The Colombian hasn’t gotten off to the best of starts with Chelsea but also said that he feels better every day. He’s certainly got plenty to prove in the Premier League following his misgivings with Manchester United.
Mourinho and Fergie
In other news, Jose Mourinho has revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson informed him of his decision to retire from football management before making it public but didn’t offer the Special One the job as he knew he was committed to Chelsea.
Mourinho was hotly linked with the Old Trafford role during his time at Real Madrid, but he’s confirmed he was always going to return to Stamford Bridge and had no intention of replacing Fergie. Right you are, Jose.
