SHRINK TO HELP 'CONFUSED' BLUES

MAURIZIO SARRI wants to bring in a sports psychologist to help his struggling Chelsea stars.

The Blues slipped to a 1-0 defeat at home to Leicester this weekend in a surprise result.

ARSENAL FAVOURITES TO LAND CAHILL

ARSENAL are shock favourites to land Chelsea outcast Gary Cahill in January.

Cahill, 33, has played just seven times this season, including just once in the league, with the Gunners in need of reinforcements.

OUT WITH THE OLD

DAVID LUIZ is set to leave Chelsea next summer after Maurizio Sarri failed to convince the board to keep him.

The Brazilian is out of contract in six months' time and wants a new long-term deal – but the Blues chiefs will only offer a one-year extension due to him being over 30.

A REAL NAB

CHELSEA could miss out on the chance to sign Lyon's mercurial midfielder Nabil Fekir after he was offered to Real Madrid.

The French international came close to joining Liverpool in the summer, only for medical problem seeing  it fall through.

ED START

EDEN HAZARD has declared that Chelsea will be firing all cylinders soon enough.

The Blues suffered their third defeat in six Premier League fixtures against Leicester – but the Belgian is looking to score in their next match.

GIMME A CAL

BORUSSIA DORTMUND want Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi, but are not willing to swap for Christian Pulisic.

The 18-year-old forward has been linked with a move away after struggling to secure regular first-team minutes, despite impressing during the time he has been given.

RUDI HELL

ANTONIO RUDIGER has ruled Chelsea out of the title race following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Leicester, calling his teammates' mentality “stupid.”

Stamford Bridge was stunned into silence as a single goal from Jamie Vardy derailed Maurizio Sarri’s men and saw them fall further behind Premier League leaders Liverpool.

EXPECTED MAUR

MAURIZIO SARRI slammed the reaction of his “shocked” stars after Chelsea lost their first home game under the Italian.

Jamie Vardy’s second-half strike saw under-pressure Claude Puel’s Leicester leave Stamford Bridge with all three points.

CHELSEA 0 LEICESTER 1

NO SIGN of the dreaded ‘Y’ word from the terraces but Maurizio Sarri is determined to find out ‘why’ his Chelsea players crumbled.

The first home defeat of the manager’s reign against the most unlikely opposition and Sarri is on the warpath to get to the root of the ‘mental confusion’ which put him in such a bad mood.

BAT OUT OF HELL

CHELSEA want to cut Michy Batshuayi's loan spell at Valencia short – and then offer him to a Premier League rival.

The Belgian has struggled to replicate his Borussia Dortmund from the second part of last season, with the Blues reportedly already in talks with Crystal Palace.

MAUR FROM RLC

MAURIZIO SARRI will not let Ruben Loftus-Cheek leave after his recent struggles to break into the first-team at Chelsea.
