Chelsea fans, hello and welcome.

It’s time to shake off the rust from the weekend and get straight back into the groove, so we won’t waste time with pointlessly long introductions.

Watch the video above for the latest headlines or read on below for some added gossip. In any case, enjoy.

Mourinho's last stand

Chelsea’s defeat at the hands of Bournemouth was their eighth of the Premier League campaign, the fourth at home and the most recent supplement towards what’s becoming a downright terrible season.

And it gets worse. The Guardian today claim that a midweek Champions League defeat to FC Porto might spell the end to Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge, but he does still have the backing of the board for the time being.

In a roundabout kind of way it would be fitting for his former club to ruin his spell at Chelsea - fans obviously don’t want that.

Here's what happened when Chelsea met Porto earlier this season:

Griezmann chase

Moving on, it’s said the Blues are ready to prioritise the capture of Antoine Griezmann in January.

Roman Abramovich is prepared to meet the crisis head-on with his cash in hand - the Atletico Madrid striker is believed to be Chelsea’s top target.

Courtois on Chelsea's fortunes

And to finish, Thibaut Courtois has opened up on the Blues’ woeful first-half of the season and believes most of it can simply be put down to ‘bad luck’.

The Belgium international said Chelsea had been unlucky at certain points this year but insisted that his teammates had enough quality to get themselves out of the mire. Got an opinion on that? Let us know in the comments box below.
