Chelsea 1 Vs 1 FC Schalke 04

Cesc Fabregas scored his first Chelsea goal but was unable to help Jose Mourinho's side to victory in their Champions League group-stage opener as they were held by Schalke.

The Spain midfielder, 27, who joined from Barcelona in the summer, swept in the opener from Eden Hazard's pass.

Azpilicueta signs new five-year contract with Chelsea

The 25-year-old has made nearly 100 appearances for the club since his arrival from Marseille in August 2012 and has cemented his place at left-back despite Filipe Luis' signing

Cesar Azpilicueta has signed a new five-year contract with Chelsea.

The 25-year-old joined from Marseille in August 2012 and has made 95 appearances for Chelsea.

Azpilicueta, who is naturally a right-sided defender, was able to secure a regular role at left-back ahead of Ashley Cole last season and has kept his place despite Filipe Luis’ arrival from Atletico Madrid earlier this summer.

Torres : Mourinho taught me so much at Chelsea

The Spaniard scored just 12 goals in 44 games under the Special One last season but is adamant the two men enjoyed a productive professional relationship

Fernando Torres insists he learned a lot from Jose Mourinho in his final season at Chelsea.

Torres ended a disappointing three-year stay at Stamford Bridge last month by agreeing to join AC Milan on loan for the final two years of his contract, where he will replace the departed Mario Balotelli.

Mourinho frequently criticised Torres and fellow strikers Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba last season and the lack of a reliable goalscorer was widely perceived to be the main reason why Chelsea fell short in the Premier League title race.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that Petr Cech will be allowed to leave the club should he wish to find regular first team football.

The Czech Republic international found himself on the bench for the Blues' first Premier League match of the season as Thibaut Courtois was preferred to face Burnley.

Fabregas on fire, no shots for Van Persie & Lamela lights up Tottenham - Opta's Weekend in Numbers

A draw against Sunderland saw Manchester United make their worst start to a Premier League season since 1992-93, while unchanged Chelsea look like the team to beat

By Duncan Alexander


Tottenham endured a strange 2013-14. While statistically it was one of their better Premier League campaigns, the mid-season managerial change and associated fall-out left many fans disillusioned.

Spurs’ start to the new season has changed all that, though, with the Lilywhites top of the nascent league table, while record signing Erik Lamela is finally leading the charge, a year after he was signed.

After providing an assist for only one goal in his first 10 appearances for Spurs, the Argentine assisted two goals in seven minutes as QPR were run ragged at White Hart Lane.

Cechmate: Courtois the man of the moment to prove Mourinho right again

The 22-year-old made several significant saves and one crucial second-half stop from David Nugent, justifying the demotion of his veteran team-mate

By Liam Twomey at Stamford Bridge

If there was one moment which convinced Jose Mourinho that Thibaut Courtois was Chelsea's present as well as its future, it probably came in the 94th minute of Belgium's World Cup quarter-final clash with Argentina in Brasilia.
