His teammates failed him – Poyet names ‘excellent’ Chelsea star after 1-1 draw with Brighton

Chelsea legend, Gus Poyet has singled out ‘excellent’ Romelu Lukaku for praise after Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Brighton at Stamford Bridge, saying that his teammates failed him.

Euro 2020: Southgate Names two Squad Members that will not Play last-16 clash

England manager, Gareth Southgate, has admitted that it will be “very complicated” for Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell to start their last-16 match. The Chelsea duo were forced into quarantine, after coming into close contact with Scotland’s midfielder, Billy Gilmour, who tested positive for COVID-19. Mount and Chilwell both missed the 1-0 win over the Czech Republic on Tuesday. “We think the quarantine ends at midnight of match day. “What we don’t know is how much training they can do and what might be possible. They can obviously train individually and we think there might be a period where they can train in groups distanced, but I’m not sure they can join in the whole group. “So the reality is it’s really complicated for them to start in the game next week,” England mana...

Chelsea whizkid Gilmour aiming to emulate Mount with loan spell next season

Chelsea starlet Billy Gilmour will seek a loan move away from Stamford Bridge this summer. The Scotland midfielder was injured with a serious knee injury until November last year. But after returning to fitness, he played just two-and-a-half Premier League games under new manager Thomas Tuchel. Gilmour has now decided to follow in the footsteps of teammate Mason Mount by gaining senior experience on loan, per The Sun. Mount spent two seasons on loan - at Vitesse and Derby County - and is now one of Tuchel's most important players. 19-year-old Gilmour will compete for Scotland at the Euros this summer. Some have called for Steve Clarke to start the diminutive midfielder after his impressive cameo against Luxembourg last weekend.

AC Milan Eye Three Chelsea Players

AC Milan are preparing a triple transfer raid on Chelsea ahead of next season, by signing Olivier Giroud, Hakim Ziyech and Fikayo Tomori, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. Although the Serie A club finished trophyless last season, they qualified for the Champions League for the first time since 2013/2014. They are now planning to bolster their playing squad ahead of their participation in Europe’s top club competition. Out of those three bids, Tomori would be the easiest to wrap up, as the defender enjoyed a successful loan spell with the Rossoneri, having joined in the January transfer window. Milan have the option to buy him for £25million and that looks likely to now be a formality. Ziyech was one of Chelsea’s major signings last summer but the Moroccan has endured a...
