Chelsea hosts Southampton at Stamford Bridge this Saturday under real pressure to take three points and launch themselves out of the bottom half of the Premier League table.
The Blues have clipped yet another snag in what's been a stuttering campaign so far. The Blues' messy draw against Newcastle last time out in the league indicated the champions are far from back to winning ways.
Jose Mourinho has some key decisions to make and his team selection for the Saturday Night Football will be a huge indication of how I believe we move forward. Will Jose recall his Skipper?
Plenty has and is still being made of our season so far. From poor results, poor individual performances, defensive mistakes, the Eva saga and now reports that Jose has lost part of the dressing room, the press would have us believe that everything is falling apart.
We all watched Diego Costa's frustrations, his shake of the head and looking to the skies as if to ask for some sort of divine intervention to our season against Porto. However, despite all that, Diego Costa has issued a rallying call to his Chelsea team mates.
After a blistering start to his Chelsea career this time last year, Costa has struggled for goals and as with everyone else in the squad is low on confidence.
Chelsea suffered defeat at the hands of Porto on Matchday two of the Champions League and it's yet another demonstration of how un-organised Chelsea have become without John Terry. Enough is enough, we MUST put him straight back into the side on Saturday!
Let's not try and smooth things over here as I have really had enough of our defensive displays this season.
Chelsea visits FC Porto at the Estadio do Dragao on Tuesday evening looking to build on an emphatic first outing in the Champions League group stage.
Jose Mourinho has said none of his first-team players are untouchable, giving rise to speculation he could be open to experimenting with his starting lineup on Tuesday evening.
Chelsea blew a fantastic chance to close the gap on Manchester City to just FIVE points up at Newcastle on Saturday night and if anything the game demonstrated the state of our season so far.
Knowing we had that chance, knowing that Newcastle were low on confidence, under pressure and that we had come off the back of a good win against Arsenal, I will and could never understand how we went out in that first half and played the way we did.
A resurgent Chelsea will take on Newcastle United at St. James' Park on Sunday coming off the back of a string of confidence-boosting wins.
The 15-placed Blues are in the process of piecing together a horrid start to the 2015-16 campaign and with three wins in eight days under their belt, it's a good time for Jose Mourinho and his men to visit Tyneside.
Chelsea eased passed Walsall in the defence of their League Cup last night winning 4-1 and goals from Ramires, Remy, Kenedy and Pedro sealed it.
What did you think of the game and some of our individual performances? Post your comments below!
Like many of you, I was disappointed to hear that the FA have decided to BAN Diego Costa for three games as a retrospective punishment for what happened against the Arsenal! It's a joke if you ask me and has only come about because of the knob ends on TV who have created such a fuss about it!
I will say this, Costa grabbing Koscielny in the face isn't acceptable but the French Defender then virtually man-handles Costa to the floor which is why Costa gets up and goes chest-to-chest with him for the defender to fall on the floor like he has been shot with his arms flailing about.
After we had heard reports last week that Eva Carneiro was invited back to Cobham and it looking like Chelsea would be a happy family again, yesterday it has been confirmed that she has left Chelsea. What are your thoughts on all this?
What I can say as reported on the BBC here, is that the Football Association are looking into a complaint that the Manager used abusive and sexist language towards her.
Cesc Fabregas has backed Diego Costa and has been speaking of beating Arsenal and what it means for our season. With all this crap going on in the media about non-football related issues, it's good to get back on track and talk about the victory over Arsenal instead!
First to Diego Costa and Fabregas backs him in addition the Chelsea fans.
Today is Global Peace Day, a day of global Peace and non violence which is a fantastic idea with everything that is going on around the World.
In 2014 the Peace One Day Report supported by McKinsey & Company found that over 1 billion people were exposed to Peace Day messages. Of those exposed, 610 million are now aware of the day, with an estimated 10 million people behaving more peacefully on the day as a result.
