There were a few incomings and outgoings at Chelsea in the transfer window, while it appears the Blues will keep hold of superstar Eden Hazard. "Clubs can not sign players", said Hazard. Chelsea were in a similar contract stand-off with Thibaut Courtois and were forced to sell the goalkeeper this month as he had a year left on his deal.

He said: "I know he [Emery] is trying to play out from the back".

The La Liga transfer window doesn't close until August 31, leaving many Blues fans nervous about losing one of their best players.

Ahead of the clash between City and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, where Pep Guardiola's side laid down a real marker on route to winning the title in record-breaking fashion, Hazard appeared to mock Sterling and the way he runs.

I remember better good things instead of the worst. I am very happy and it's just the beginning of the new season. I still have two years of contract and we will see what happens.

Since Maurizio Sarri joined Chelsea, he has repeatedly been asked about how he plans to deal with his smoking habit with a ban in place at every football stadium in the country. It would be a bit odd for [Chelsea] to let me go and not recruit another player. "I feel good here". We start to work altogether two weeks ago so now my target is to play 90 minutes like the first 25.

Jorginho has started his adventure at Chelsea very well.

The Blues have Europa League football this season but can use their deep corps to navigate the early days of that while their title rivals worry about what could be an unusually hard Champions League group stage (Liverpool is now set to be a Pool 3 side and could lead to a group, for example, of Barcelona, Napoli, Liverpool, and Inter Milan!).
