Chelsea Suffers Blow as Ben Chilwell Faces Hamstring Injury Setback

By Score More Chelsea has been hit with another significant injury setback as left-back Ben Chilwell sustained a hamstring injury during their 1-0 victory over Brighton in the Carabao Cup, as confirmed by manager Mauricio Pochettino. This news was reported by the Daily Mail. The report reveals that Chilwell had been dealing with two hamstring injuries, and it appears that he aggravated the existing issue during the match, ultimately being forced off in the final minute. Chelsea had already exhausted all their substitutions, leaving them with ten men for the remainder of the game. Chelsea is already coping with a growing list of injuries to key first-team players, including summer signings Christopher Nkunku and Romeo Lavia. Additionally, Reece James, Carney Chukwuemeka, Trevoh Chalo...

Premier League: Chelsea 0-1 Aston Villa

By Score More Aston Villa secured a victory at Stamford Bridge, compounding Chelsea's ongoing struggles under manager Mauricio Pochettino. For the second consecutive visit to Chelsea, Villa's fans witnessed an opposing manager being sacked the following day. Last season, Graham Potter met a similar fate after losing to Chelsea. Chelsea's managerial change and squad overhaul have yet to yield improved results, with just two league wins since Potter's departure. The frustration for Chelsea and Pochettino extended beyond the result. The team ended the match with 10 men as right back Malo Gusto was sent off for a challenge on Lucas Digne, despite winning the ball. Gusto's suspension adds to Chelsea's concerns, along with a one-game suspension for striker Nicolas Jackson, who picked up h...

Premier League: Chelsea 0-1 Nottingham Forest

By Score More Chelsea endured a painful 0-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge, with their own mistakes leading to the loss. The match, played under sunny skies, was devoid of excitement, and Mauricio Pochettino's team ultimately succumbed to The Tricky Trees due to an Anthony Elanga counterattack goal, following a game filled with persistent fouls. Scoring opportunities were scarce in the first half, with the best chance actually falling to the visitors as Taiwo Awoniyi sent his shot over the bar from just six yards away. The second half began as a nightmare for CFC when Moisés Caicedo was dispossessed in midfield, allowing Awoniyi to set up Elanga for the decisive goal. Chelsea's attempts to mount a comeback were sluggish and ineffective, with Nicolas Jackson missi...

Premier League: Goal and Assist from Sterling in Chelsea’s First Victory

By Score More Third time's the charm! Chelsea finally secured their first victory of the 2023/2024 Premier League season after hosting Luton Town on Thursday night at Stamford Bridge, resulting in a 3-0 defeat for the visiting team. The common denominator in Mauricio Pochettino's team's goals was Raheem Sterling. He scored the opening goal at the 17th minute with a beautiful individual play. Sterling received the ball on the right side of the Blues' attack, pierced through Luton Town's defense in the penalty area, and fired a cross-shot, leaving Belgian goalkeeper Thomas Kaminski with no chance. The second goal came in the second half, with Malo Gusto crossing from the right side to the 11-meter area, where Sterling appeared unmarked to shoot the second goal for the Blues as he plea...

Chelsea’s Ongoing Summer Transfer Saga: Squad Changes and Michael Olise’s Imminent Arrival

By Score More Chelsea's summer transfer activities are far from reaching their conclusion, as they simultaneously strategize to trim their first-team squad while finalizing the signing of Michael Olise from Crystal Palace. The Blues have remained at the forefront as the Premier League's most prolific spenders in this transfer window. In the wake of the £115 million acquisition of Moises Caicedo from Brighton, a forthcoming deal for Southampton's Romeo Lavia is on the horizon. Remarkably, the activation of Olise's £35 million release clause is imminent, cementing his position as Chelsea's 25th addition within a span of just 12 months. The cumulative spending on fresh talents, masterminded by Chelsea's ownership group, approaches an astonishing figure of £1 billion. Simultaneously, th...

Roma’s Pursuit of Armando Broja: Loan Talks with Chelsea and Forward Plans Unveiled

By Score More Reports indicate that Jose Mourinho's Roma has initiated discussions with Chelsea regarding the potential acquisition of young striker Armando Broja. Roma's intention is to secure Broja's services on a loan basis. However, Chelsea has demonstrated a lack of interest in pursuing a loan deal for the 21-year-old forward. This development emerges as Mourinho seeks a replacement for Tammy Abraham, emphasizing Roma's quest for a proficient striker. The situation unfolded when Roma found themselves in pursuit of a new striker, prompting them to consider turning to Mourinho's former club, Chelsea, for assistance. According to Sky Sport, Roma has reached out to Chelsea with an interest in securing Albanian striker Broja on loan. Regrettably, Chelsea appears disinclined to allo...

Mauricio Pochettino’s official debut as Chelsea’s head coach resulted in a draw (1-1) against Liverpool

By Score More Luis Díaz was responsible for the opening goal of the match, propelling the Reds into the lead in the 18th minute. In response, French central defender Alex Disasi, a fresh addition to the Blues' roster for the season, leveled the score at 1-1 in the 37th minute. This equilibrium persisted until the final whistle. https://twitter.com/ElevenSports_PT/status/1690753190570913793 Diogo Jota, the Portuguese forward, was included in Klopp's starting lineup, and his team dominated the proceedings during the initial half-hour. Their approach was characterized by speed and aggression, pushing Chelsea onto the back foot and scarcely allowing their opponents to penetrate their own defensive zone. Luis Díaz's goal, which materialized following a splendid pass from Salah, initiated ...

Liverpool Surges Ahead of Chelsea in Race for Moises Caicedo Amidst Midfield Shuffle

In a surprising turn of events, Liverpool has reportedly surpassed Chelsea in the competition to secure Moises Caicedo, outbidding the West London club for the services of the Brighton midfielder. Liverpool has now emerged as an unexpected front-runner in the race to sign Moises Caicedo, having seemingly outmatched Chelsea's efforts to secure the Brighton midfielder. This development follows Chelsea's apparent advancement in the pursuit of Southampton's Romeo Lavia, as they submitted a substantial £48 million offer for the young Belgian prospect on Wednesday night. According to sources from The Telegraph, Chelsea's bid for Lavia might have been prompted by Liverpool's sudden move to disrupt their plans for Caicedo. Nevertheless, it's believed that Caicedo's preference is to join Stamf...

Chelsea 2-0 Dortmund (2-1 agg): Huge result for Potter as the Blues reach Champions League QFs

Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz scored in either half as Chelsea battled back to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 on aggregate to advance in the Champions League. The Blues trailed 1-0 on aggregate after the first leg but they were determined to turn the tie around at Stamford Bridge. A goal from Sterling and a re-taken penalty from Havertz earned the hosts a 2-0 win and breathing space for Potter. The Premier League side have now won back-to-back games for the first time since October. The board’s faith in Potter has now been vindicated. Chelsea were energetic, playing on the front foot with bags of initiative, a team transformed from the one defeated here by Southampton 17 days ago. Dortmund, second in the Bundesliga and on a run of 10 straight wins, could not live with their early high ...

Dortmund 1 Chelsea 0: Toothless Blues on brink of Champions League KO after Adeyemi wondergoal

The goal was against the run of play and will be a shattering blow to boss Graham Potter after his team produced an impressive performance apart from one momentary lapse. It is not a disastrous result against one of Europe’s most in-form sides but it could have been so much better. Chelsea hit the bar through Joao Felix and Reece James twice went close from a free kick and a powerful shot in the second half. Kalidou Koulibaly also had a shot cleared off the line by ex-Liverpool midfielder Emre Can. But failing to score again underlines how much Potter needs a man in his team with a killer instinct in front of goal - a basic requirement he just doesn’t have at the moment. The way in which Dortmund burst clear from defending a corner to score less than 15 seconds later through winger ...
