Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic believes that the blues were able to secure a much-needed victory against archrivals Arsenal because they wanted it more than the opposition.
Chelsea have been on a very poor run of form and it had seen them 11 points behind table leaders Manchester City after having played just five games. With the possibility of defending the title almost over, Chelsea needed something to start the campaign and it came in the form of a 2-0 win against Arsenal. Jose Mourinho has been mourning for several weeks that everything had been going against his team.
A few weeks ago, Jose Mourinho stated that the biggest title won by the Chelsea youth team was the emergence of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and not winning the FA youth cup. Over the years, the Chelsea youth academy has been extremely strong and this has translated into several titles in terms of the FA youth cup.
The 23 year old Brazilian midfielder Oscar is one of the regular starters of Jose Mourinho and is undoubtedly one of the most promising rising stars in the world of football but this hasn’t stopped rumors from linking the player with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi and Paul Pogba of Juventus are some of the players that have entered the wish-list of Jose Mourinho and if rumors are to be believed then Oscar could be used as bait in order to sign one of his summer targets.
Jose Mourinho wants to boost his attacking options and it has been revealed that Chelsea has launched an offer in the region of €4 million for the 22 year old Japanese forward of FC Tokyo, Yoshinori Muto.
The president of FC Tokyo is Naoki Ogane and he was the person which confirmed that Chelsea is indeed interested in signing Muto with an offer that has already been launched but it remains uncertain if the player will be making a move to Stamford Bridge during the approaching summer transfer window as Yoshinori Muto has already stated that he is unsure on what to do.
Starting from May, it is going to get difficult for foreign players to play in English premier leagues.
The chairman of FA, Greg Dyke, said in an interview that there are so many foreign players right now that English premier leagues can hardly be considered as English at all.
Not only this, he has also revealed that FA is in the process of drafting laws to limit the number of home grown players. Considering the fact that a lot of foreign players who are absolutely best at their game play in the league matches, this decision can have a negative impact on the world of football.
