    A dozen blue roses0

    Valentine’s Day is looming… so who in the Chelsea dressing room truly deserves a fans’ bouquet? Eden Hazard, for his exquisite footwork? Cesar Azpilicueta for his all-round, underappreciated dependability? Willian, for continuing to dazzle even though he’s no longer an automatic first pick? Or how about unrufflable teenager Ethan Ampadu, whose ‘Whatever’ expression and dreadlocked

Most will enter the echoey cauldron anticipating a Blues victory, but the Irons aren’t merely desperate for top-flight survival, they

  • Hazard excels in Toon defeat0

    Eden Hazard may have been man of the match in the Blues’ lunchtime defeat of Newcastle, but the back-to-fitness Victor Moses and the back-to-form Danny Drinkwater were also stand-out participants. The Toon Army outsang Chelsea for the entire game, but on the field the Blues outplayed the Magpies and, in the end, a 3-1 scoreline
