Why Conte is so keen on Radja Nainggolan for Chelsea's rebuild

It's a well documented fact that Chelsea severely under-performed last season. While Guus Hiddink was able to somewhat steady the ship, the Blues still finished in 10th spot. Antonio Conte will want to implement his own style and will be bringing in players who would help him do the same in his bid to make Chelsea a force again, quickly.

Cesc Fabregas: Is he the weak link at Chelsea?

Chelsea’s startling demise has been the most talked about subject since the new season set into motion. The Blues have made the worst start to the league by a reigning champion in the Premier League’s long, impressive history. Coming as a great shock to most football followers and experts, Chelsea’s nightmare start to the season was not such a surprise to me.

Jose Mourinho is a master in the big games …
Chelsea Not Yet Among the Champions League Elite

Chelsea Not Yet Among the Champions League Elite

In the past, reigning supreme in England has guaranteed fear in European competitions. Before 2013, 7 out of the previous 8 European Cup/Champions League finals had featured an English team; since Chelsea shocked German giants Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, however, zero of the last six finalists have been from England. The Premier League may continue to be the world's richest and most popular domestic league, but its teams' influence in Europe has diminished significantly. Last year was a low …
