The Blues will then host Malmo for the second leg of their Europa League tie ahead of the EFL Cup final against Manchester City on February 24. While he took some time to get used to this new position, he has now been involved in six Chelsea goals this term (three goals and three assists), more than any of his other full seasons in the Premier League. "It is hard to explain what happened", said Chelsea captain Azpilicueta.

'It is certainly a club I respect and a manager that I respect so it wouldn't make me smile or anything different because my job is here.

The Italian is famously a prolific chain smoker, but Chelsea fans are the ones fuming.

Chelsea subsequently halted their plans for a $1 billion stadium development, with speculation that Abramovich could be willing to call time on his tenure as club owner, should the price be right.

'To be honest, I don't know what to expect. I'm anxious about the performance. You'd have to ask the club.

"I think this is a crucial moment in the history of this club", Mourinho stated.

"It's close to being finalised but not quite done, so I don't want to jump the gun", said Lampard.

Josh Adams and Owen Watkin scored a pair of tries after the break but there were too many errors to push for a bonus-point win. We didn't really get out of jail. "It wasn't a great performance today but sometimes you have to win ugly", said Gatland.

Whittaker out of fight vs. Gastelum at UFC 234
It continued a awful run of bad luck and health issues for 28-year-old Whittaker since he won the interim title in 2017. The UFC boss said Whittaker is expected to be out four to six weeks, though that is not necessarily an exact timetable.

Alan Shearer and Jermaine Jenas analysed the match on Match of the Day 2 and part of their breakdown focused on Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, and just how tough City made life for him.

City and Liverpool are both on 65 points with City having the better goal difference although they have played one more game than their rivals. Competitive and local rivalries are less tasty than they have ever been.

Frank Lampard has played down speculation linking him with a return to Chelsea, insisting he is only focused on Derby County despite being viewed as a candidate to replace Maurizio Sarri.

"But people don't understand how hard it is to do something - my first year was hard too".

"It is hard to describe our performance, it's hard also to understand". Instead, the manager arrived quickly for his post-match press conference and left fewer than four minutes later, admitting that he was "worried" about his Chelsea side and adding that his job is "always at risk".

Aguero said: "We had a good game".
