    Callum assists, Alvaro scores0

    Two superb crosses from the fleet-footed Callum Hudson-Odoi, and two goals for the confidence-shorn striker Alvaro Morata, were enough to dump Nottingham Forest out of the FA Cup in the 3rd Round on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, in a one-sided tie which still seemed laboured and unconvincing at times. Manager Aitor Karanka had set up

  • Yellow sub routine0

    Sometimes it just isn’t thrilling. Chelsea did a workmanlike job in Greece against PAOK Salonika, but the 1-0 win wasn’t in the ‘convincing’ bracket, and while the Blues dominated most of the match, the failure to score a second goal led to an edgy last 15 minutes.

    Yes, OK, there was drama aplenty at the end of this League Cup quarter-final at the Bridge on Wednesday night, December 20… but for the most part this was an oddly unconvincing and strange performance by a greatly changed Blues team. With the 17-year-old Ethan Ampadu making his full debut in central defence, it was

    A yawning, soporific 1-00

    Blue Santa hats were the fashion of the day as Chelsea ground out a 1-0 victory over Southampton at the Bridge, to keep their place among the also-rans behind sure-to-be champions Man City. For the Blues it was, at times, a frustrating afternoon. With Alvaro Morata on the bench after recovering from a back injury,
