Being glad a player has been injured. That's poor form, @TalentSearcherregardless if Morata plays for a club that you can't stop obsessing about.

Mourinho started Fellaini (despite his ankle injury) and Lukaku (despite a knock in training). Now he's asking Martinez to leave them out of the game v. Bosnia. SMH Let's hear what the medical staff have to say. If he's fully fit I'd expect Fellaini to play as Dembele, Witsel and Nainggolan are already ruled out while KDB might be used in a more advanced position (if he's match fit as well). KDB was great, again, and is showing he belongs in that world class bracket. Luckily I can still support a team where KDB and Hazard play together.

Also, Chelsea have now played more games against opponents in the top half than against bottom half teams. Manure OTOH have only faced bottom half teams so far this season. They're yet to face a single team from the top half. The first will be Liverpool. Hey-ho they're only the 7th placed side ATM.

Morata out or over a month accordingly - Is Conte gonna play no Striker in next game

Bit in Red, Mourinho has said Belgium is Martinez responsibility, 'It's his decision to play him or not to play him. I cannot, professionally speaking, say do this or do that - Belgium was the 1st Europe team to qualify in WC
All Manager want their players rested and no injures in the international break

That hint to Belgian manager Roberto Martinez about possibly resting Lukaku for forthcoming World Cup qualifiers with Bosnia-Herzegovina and Cyprus was obvious, even if Mourinho was not forcing the point.

Fellaini will probably miss the games against Liverpool and Spurs. He was in great form. @TalentSearcher I guess you can call that karma seeing you were glad that Morata was injured. Karma, a horrible pitch and hard tackling Bosnians.

Mourinho won't like it but still have Herrera and Carrick - Herrera has a great chance to get a starting spot

Karma on Chelsea as well - sweating on Kante and all the rumours about Conte and players

Even though I deemed Morata to be a gamble last summer I was happy when he started the season well, the best case scenario. He then surpassed my expectations for which he deserved credit (and you could overlook some of his poorer performances). At the moment however he really has to up his game. Like last summer Chelsea still need to strengthen and it would be great to see real ambition, especially with the CL in mind.

According to the latest xG Rankings the second half of the season doesn't look good for Morata. He has been fortunate to have bagged 10 so far but it's doubtful that he'll reach 20 (plus) league goals by the end of this season. Hopefully he won't have another abysmal game and he still has plenty of goals in him this season. That's just hopes and dreams though.

The potential is there for all too see, but he really needs to work on his finishing you can tell he hasn't got a clue what to do 1v1 situations, always aims straight at the keeper instead of putting it in a corner. But promising signs nonetheless

Being linked to mainly depth signings while already having added Barkley and Drinky, SMH, Andy Carroll for £20m, FFS, Conte isn't a magician. It's probably for the best that Batsman moves on (either a loan or permanently/buy-back clause) and a quality replacement comes in to really compete with Morata.

Also, should have added T.Hazard (but I'm guessing that clause has expired now) and loaned out Musonda. The latter needs regular first team football to improve. It's better for him and Chelsea (in case Musonda comes good, loaned out to a club where he's a nailed on starter). What the hell is he doing on the same team sheet as Kylian Hazard?

You lot are in terrible form. Second season syndrome has hit you lot again. Bako was a terrible buy and the Matic deal was just the perfect give to United. Perhaps no CL football for next season either if Conte doesn't pick up his game. 

Second season syndrome again? Says the lad with a rotating Utd crest delusional much lol what are united on now 5th season syndrome getting knocked out by Sevilla at home you know it's bad when even you're own manager says your shlt but I guess that's just football heritage eh, Sanchez on half a million a week doing fk all but but bakayoko don't make me laugh. You Utd fans are weirdos always in the Chelsea thread talking rubbish to make yourselves feel good but never to be seen in your own thread always claiming next year will be the year your back after another summer of major spending top top nonces

What a deluded statement as if a fan of Man Utd has the audacity to criticise a Chelsea signing! Only thing right was the comment on Matic absolutely bonkers Conte let him go, but United signings Lindelof Sanchez what a disaster. So fortunate players like Lingard Rashford and McTominay have dug United out. 

SO many rank poor underperformers,  desperate for them to choke and drop off 2nd. Awful advert for football

Mourinho cracking up with his 12 minute rants, he is losing the dressing room, had ZERO response with that dour cup game

Who was right about Courtios going to Real Madrid???

Ever since the split with his girlfriend/she taking their kids to Madrid has it been an issue and when talks broke down about the extension of his contract it was clear he'd leave. So well before your post. Next summer Courtois could have left on a free and earned himself a massive signing bonus (if it was about money, instead of being close to his kids, he should have stayed one more year). Now he's leaving for 4 times what Chelsea paid Genk and with Kovacic as a sweetener midfield is really starting to take shape. Jorginho - Kovacic - Kante is one hell of a midfield.

I doubt Sarri will win the title in his first season like Conte did. Given time he should be able to build a title-challenging team. Holding onto Hazard was essential.

After Cahill Hazard is now the longest serving (first) team player. Surprisingly Courtois had joined Chelsea even before Cahill and including the vast loanee army only one guy has been more loyal than the snake Courtois. He's getting plenty of abuse. A shame Mourinho and the board didn't get a fraction of that sort of abuse for the way they handled the likes of De Bruyne, Lukaku, Salah, ... it cuts both ways.

PS it sounds like Sarri was advised by Reina and Kepa fits the profile he's looking for better than Courtois. In the end things seem to have worked out for the better.

I predicted Courtios would go like in 2016

Courtois wants a return to Spain and has a Spanish girlfriend(Ik people say De Gea in the same situation) but De Gea has a 3 year deal over him, IDK How muchCourtois has to go on his contract but If Chelsea doesn't finish in a European spot then It's more likely RM could get him plus RM will have t...

So you're saying you were wrong for 4 windows in a row and 5th time is the charm (the maximum usually is the 3rd time).

plus 35 mil on Courtois is cheap compared to Kepa and Allisson transfers this summer

Still don't think Chelsea will do well under Sarri

Mourinho's infamous 3rd season, what do you think, he already seems on edge.

Again, Courtois only had 1 year left on his contract and would have left on a free next summer. Better to sell this summer and get 4 times what Chelsea paid Genk and Kovacic as a sweetener.

Kepa had 7 years left + he was coming from a club that only sells when the buy-out clause is met. Sarri is a longtime admirer, good fit, 23yo, top quality goalie, ...

You don't see a keeper join in January but I said Courtois will go

Mourinho got 6th to 2nd -  Mourinho only on edge as he never got his players, IMO Deadwood was too much focused on Bale which he'll never admit, Deadwood is the problem.

Courtois had 1 year left but still 35mil is cheap, who says Kepa and Kovacic will be hits? they could end up flops like Morata
