The bane of United
Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard, John Terry; they’ve all been a nuisance for Manchester United over the years in their own way.
However, none of them top Sir Alex Ferguson’s list of players he used to hate playing against when facing off against Chelsea.
That honour, perhaps surprisingly, goes to Gianfranco Zola. Ferguson told how he hated playing against Zola but admitted he admired him, and that he used to love watching him play.
"Little Gianfranco Zola, he annoyed me. He was one of these players who was unperturbed about who he was playing against. He always seemed to have a smile on his face and that annoyed me.
"How can he be enjoying himself playing against United? Nobody else does. He was a fantastic player and I loved watching him.
"It was enjoyable and for me to say that about an opponent tells you how much I admired him."
High praise indeed considering the raft of talent Stamford Bridge has housed over the past decade.
Zouma on Costa
In other news, Kurt Zouma has openly apologised for comments he made concerning Diego Costa after Chelsea’s win over Arsenal at the weekend.
Amidst much controversy, Zouma said his teammate was a ‘cheat’, but he’s now said that the message he intended was taken the wrong way as a result of English not being his first language. Cue training ground awkwardness.
Rounding off our report, it’s over to Eden Hazard, who claims he hasn’t lost his ability to be a game-changer and believes his performance in the match against Arsenal will help his confidence.
The Belgian has had a relatively quiet season so far but opened his account with a deflected strike against the Gunners in stoppage time.
