Top 5 Chelsea players sold by Mourinho who later became superstars




#5 Juan Mata

Juan Mata was part of Roberto De Matteo’s triumvirate with Hazard and Oscar; winning the best Chelsea player back-to-back as he was tagged with the number 10 role.

He was a great finisher but Jose Mourinho came in and made him great on the bench. He joined Manchester United and was used under then manager Van Gaal until the Portuguese came in again.

#4 Arjen Robben

The Netherland superstar who is already a legend in Germany said that it was a huge “relief” after he felt lack of support from Jose Mourinho before joining Real Madrid in a £24.5million deal.

He went to the top elite in Germany and won his first Champions league after scoring the only goal in the final against Dortmund.

#3 Romelu Lukaku

The Belgian international would have become the Drogba of today as he was keen on joining his model while he was still playing at Chelsea. He was loaned often times by Jose until he finally signed for Everton. Lukaku is currently the main striker in Jose’s plan as a Manchester United manager. He could be nicknamed “The prodigal son”.

#2 Kelvin De Bruyne

Europe’s finest player and one who can dictate the tempo of the game in the midfield. He is one of a kind; his feet are equally useful to cause harm and create chances. He was the joint contender with Salah for best footballer in England.

Wonder why Jose sold him. Fans were so sad he did. The “special one” ended up becoming the “special scout” for other clubs.

#1 Mohamed Salah

Mo Salah was still 19 when Basel dealt with Chelsea in the Champions league: he stole the show before joining Mourinho’s team.

He was however still developing but not given much time to prove himself. He was loaned to Fiorentina, then to Roma when he became Roma’s best player, yet he was sold and now the Egyptian is the best player in the EPL.

He his not just fast, he runs with pace and reason; opponents get scared when he’s with the ball. He has a heart full of goals.

Loads of talent: will he join Chelsea or Liverpool next summer?






Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Liverpool sent scouts to watch Queen Park Rangers wonder kid Eberechi Eze.

Eze is in a brilliant form which skyrocketed the scouts to sit in observation as they watched him play against Millwall on Monday night at Loftus Road.

Eberechi stole the show while he scored in the very match that saw his team earned the much-needed victory.

The young star has been bright and impressive while playing behind the striker in the championship. Whilst his club was tipped to be listed among the relegated team this season, he has given QPR a dazzling hope of his conservative performance.

The diminutive, conservative and skilful player has entertained his fans with three goals which makes him a potential player to leave his current club sooner or rather than later.

On different club’s perspective; Chelsea is keen on adding young talents to their squad; Maurizio Sarri will be considered lucky with plenty options to pick from while Mauricio Pochettino is in need of attackers due to lack of extra legs in his team.

Liverpool have a host of brilliant talent but it will be very competitive for the QPR player to join with Saido Mane, Mo Salah, Daniel Sturridge, Divork Origi and co in a very tough role already mastered by Klopp’s triumvirate.

While Man City still have quality young players from the bench who are yet to stamp their shirt in Pep Guardiola’s radar.

For Eze to get a grip on any of the aforementioned club, he has to be very good.

PAOK 0 : 1 Chelsea: How Willian helped Sarri’s continued 100% winning form.






Chelsea continued their 100% winning run as Willian got the only goal against PAOK.

Maurizio Sarri’s men travelled to PAOK who already saw a win against Crete on Saturday ahead of the clash against Chelsea.

The early goal came in the 7th minute from a superb attack when Willian latched onto an excellent pass by Ross Barkley as he fired it low into the net.

a few minutes later, Alvaro Morata would have extended the lead with a shot that almost brushed the goal post, but his effort was abortive.

Why Pedro and Morata came close to scoring in the 39 minutes Alexandros Paschalakis denied their efforts with a superb save.

From the stat, Chelsea took the lion share of the possession, more shots on target, most corner kicks as they were completely dominant throughout with a slim lead.

A match bossed by Willian and Pedro, influenced by key passes from Jorginho and possessed by N’golo Kante without the help of Eden Hazard shows that the 59-year-old boss is a genius in his tactics.

Fabregas made his first start of the season under Maurizio Sarri after coming in to replace Jorginho ahead Ruben Loftus-Cheek who sat on the bench with Victor Moses.

The Blues will now travel to West Ham in a Stadium where they lost 1:0 last season under then manager Antonio Conte as they look to continue their winning form, while West Ham already got the first win for club manager Manuel Pellegrini against Everton last week.
