Eden Hazard - How Far Can He Go?

Eden Hazard reached 100 league games for Chelsea at the weekend which is a great achievement, but the Belgian has the potential to achieve a lot more than he already has in London.

Nemanja Matic will miss this weekend's Capital One Cup Final through suspension after seeing red last Saturday during Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Burnley.

John Terry - Better With Age?

It has been a bumpy ride for the former England captain, but since the return of 'The Special One' to The Bridge he seems to have found a second-wind. The 34 year old defender scored his 35th Premier League goal in Chelsea's 2-0 win against Stoke at the weekend, making that 15 consecutive seasons that he has netted in the competition.
