Mourinho goes gaga over Chelsea quality

Jose Mourinho continues to be full of praise for his high flying Blues after Chelsea hammered five unanswered goals past an unsuspecting Schalke side in Germany last in the Champions League.

Chelsea have secured their place in the knockout rounds of the UCL as group winners, but Mourinho continues to be amazed at the quality of his present squad, who are yet to lose a game this season.


Terry: "It was a great performance"

Chelsea skipper John Terry was unsurprisingly on a high after Chelsea picked up a terrific 5-0 win against FC Schalke in Germany, thus securing their place in the knock-out rounds of the UEFA Champions League in style.

A delighted Terry said after the game, "It was a great performance. We needed to put ourselves through as top of the group and with a busy schedule that is important because it gives the manager the chance to rest a few against Sporting Lisbon if he wants to."

The event of English heavyweights striving to attract the best of talents to their dens, tussling with each other in the process, is quite a treat for the neutral-minded. And the latest reports in the press promise more of the same, possibly even tilting the tables in the favour of Manchester United. According to reports in The Daily Express, the Red Devils are looking to land Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri, courtesy of a cash-plus-player swap involving Ander Herrera, with the former also being a target for Arsenal and Liverpool.


‘Special One’ looking to sign Everton star

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has a new target on his wishlist – Everton full back Seamus Coleman. Reports in The Daily Mail have revealed that the Portuguese is looking to sign the 26 year old in the near future, and is supposedly ready to shell out about £20m for the same.

The Blues currently have veteran Branislav Ivanovic as their sole trademark right back (it’s been quite a while since Azpilicueta played in that position), and it seems the manager is certainly serious about adding reinforcements soon. Also, Coleman, who is currently in the prime of his career, is a versatile player with the ability to ply his trade in the right midfield and may help the manager in his plans of building an invincible Blues team.


Van Gaal over the moon with win at Arsenal

Manchester United Manager Louis van Gaal was a picture of delight after his team beat Arsenal at the Emirates 2-1 last night courtesy a goal from Wayne Rooney in addition to a Kieran Gibbs own goal. United were played off the park by Arsenal for large periods, but had David de Gea to thank for another stellar performance in goal as they squeezed out an important away win.

Van Gaal said after the game, "I think it is a fantastic victory at the right moment. We have a lot of injuries but despite of that we win a difficult away match. Arsenal are a good attacking team. At the end I can laugh but you can imagine if they score one of four or five chances in the first half it is a different game."


Man United perform perfect smash and grab at Arsenal

Arsenal fans were once again left to bemoan their lack of luck this season as a calamitous own goal from Kieran Gibbs resulted in the Gunners going down 2-1 at home to Manchester United. Back to back defeats for Arsenal means that they now drop down the table to 7th place, a massive 15 points shy of league leaders and local rivals Chelsea, while that rare away win for United saw them climb into the top 4, moving two crucial points clear of Arsenal.

Arsenal dominated the first half and should have opened the scoring through Jack Wilshere, who had the best chance of the early exchanges when he was played through on goal by England teammate Danny Welbeck, but hit a tame effort straight at David de Gea.
