Zouma injury gives Hiddink a defensive headache

Kurt Zouma is expected to be out of action for up to six months following the injury he picked up against Manchester United recently at Stamford Bridge. The Frenchman landed awkwardly when challenging for the ball in the air and it has since been confirmed that the defender will need surgery on his anterior cruciate ligament.

Zouma had firmly established himself as one of the regular starters in the Chelsea line-up this season in which he has made 32 appearances for the club. With the January transfer window now closed, manager Guus Hiddink will have to rely on what he has available in the squad as he is unable to sign cover until the summer.

Diego Costa has surprised Chelsea fans

Diego Costa has surprised Chelsea fans by admitting that he would not rule out a potential return to Atletico Madrid, where he spent several seasons as the club’s number one striker.

He especially rose to prominence in his final season at the club after almost helping them win the Champions League. The Spaniard came to Chelsea in the summer of 2014 and he has been a huge success in every regard. His first season brought about 20 goals just in the league and it helped the blues to become league champions after a gap of five years.

Jose Mourinho has received backing from yet another source

Jose Mourinho has received backing from yet another source – this time from a former Chelsea manager in the form of Roberto di Matteo – after yet another defeat in the Premier League. The blues are 16th of the table and are looking no close towards redeeming themselves.

If this persists, Chelsea may very well find themselves in a relegation trouble in a few months. Mourinho could not have picked the best time for an international break, as focus shifts towards the friendly matches for the next 15 days. In the meantime, he has received backing from the likes of Sven Goran Eriksson and Roberto di Matteo.

MOURINHO WOULD RESIGN

Jose Mourinho says that he would not hesitate at all in resigning from his post the moment he feels that his players don’t have that much faith in him. But, that’s not the case at the moment and thus, he would hang in there.

However, according to Mourinho, if the owners believe that he can’t turn the current scenario for Chelsea, they can hand him the axe.

JOSE MAKING CHANGES

Jose Mourinho has already gone through a superb season in his return to Stamford Bridge as he lifted the Premier League title with Chelsea but things are far from over for the Portuguese coach as his plans go beyond only making changes in his team.
