Jorginho to Manchester City was ‘all done’ before he joined Chelsea, but…

Despite initially getting overwhelmed by Pep Guardiola's suave artistes in the Community Shield, Jorginho quickly turned conductor in the Blues's orchestra and quickly underlined his importance for Sarri's system.

Marcos Alonso has revealed that he nearly smashed his television in disgust as he watched the Champions League group-stage draw unfold.

"In training, you see that the level is high", he told Het Nieuwsblad, per Sportwitness.

Moses, 27, who recently quit global football so as to focus on his club career, has made only a substitute appearance in the Premier League for "The Blues" this season.

The FA Cup winners have many key players to aid their targets for the season, but none more important than Belgium star Eden Hazard, who was strongly linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge in the summer.

"I think last season we deserved more and it's a pity not to be in the competition this season".

This particular stretch has also seen the former Napoli man set a club-record in passes completed in a league match (158) during the Blues' 2-1 win over Newcastle United. That's an indication of his commitment to the cause at Stamford Bridge. I like it, the games are played at a high tempo.

Chelsea could very well do with making some money back on the managerial-front, having Conte on the payroll and the big payout to Napoli back in July.

"I do not know yet, we will do the accounts in April-May, but I do not exclude any possibility".

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain were both reportedly interested in signing Alonso this summer, but he insisted that he is settled in London and a transfer is not in his future plans. "The day I retire from football I will return to Spain but right now I have three years left at Chelsea and I'm very happy there".

"The management of the club was rather favourable to give it to me".
