Chelsea fans, hello and welcome.

It’s the end of the working week, which usually means that at least half of your brain has shut itself down in preparation for the weekend.

We implore you to open up as much of it as possible to ingest the major news from today. Watch the video above for the major headlines and read on below for more.

Luis: Mourinho might be hurting some players

One can’t criticise his effort, but things simply didn’t work out for Filipe Luis at Chelsea.

That’s not to say the left-back has completely detached himself from the club since returning to Atletico Madrid this summer.

No, the Brazilian has had his say on what’s going wrong at Stamford Bridge, and he’s hinted it might well be Jose Mourinho - as per Yahoo Sport.

More specifically, Luis said the Special One’s comments to the press could be ‘damaging’ certain players. The outspoken Mourinho has yet to respond.

Drogba admission

Moving forward, Didier Drogba’s new autobiography follows a similar trend, with the African legend citing three-year cycles as the issue.

To simplify, Drogba believes that Mourinho’s first stint in west London came to a disappointing end because the messages he was giving to players became harder to get through after three years.

This is the start of his third campaign during his second stint, does it sound familiar?

Costa gets Rooney's vote

And, rounding of us off, Wayne Rooney has revealed that it was Diego Costa he chose when asked to cast his vote for last season’s PFA Player of the Year award.

The Spaniard bagged himself 20 Premier League goals during his debut term on English soil. It appears that impressed Rooney enough to see the England captain take positive action.
