Cesc Fabregas was a guest of Sky Sports program Monday Night Football tonight, commenting the game between Spurs and Stoke City, that Pochettino’s side won 4-0 with braces by Harry Kane and Dele Alli, reducing the gap from Leicester from 7 to 5 points, having the Foxes drew 2-2 with West Ham yesterday.

The Chelsea midfielder revealed he doesn’t want Tottenham to win the league:

“Hopefully not, I don’t want Spurs to win it to be honest.

“For what they’ve done through the season I’d love Leicester to win the Premier League.”

Chelsea can be decisive in the title race since they will host Spurs at Stamford Bridge on Monday 2 May, with three games to go, and Leicester in the last fixture, on Sunday 15 May.

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink: “I think with the Premier League, Capital One Cup and FA Cup but not being in Europe will give the new management and directors a chance to build a good team competing for the four places.”

“Sometimes when you start somewhere new and have games every three or four days then it is difficult to get the team very well prepared tactically.”

Chelsea legend, and now club ambassador, Carlo Cudicini backed Blues goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, that didn’t have a very good season and was linked with an exit from the club next summer:

“I think he is a very talented goalkeeper despite being very young. He has already won La Liga with Atletico and the Premier League and has been to a Champions League final,” Cudicini said to Goal.com.

“He might not have had the best season but that is part of the process. When the entire team struggles then it is easy to be involved with that.”

Courtois recently revealed he preferred to play with Belgium‘s defense, and Cudicini said about this:

“I don’t think it is the right idea to point out the defenders and I think people point fingers at goalies even more so that might be why he said those things.

“Courtois was out for a while at the start of the season and has done OK, but in a team that overall struggled. I guess every goalkeeper isn’t happy when the team concede goals but it is a team effort from the whole team when you defend.”

Cudicini then gave his opinion also on Asmir Begovic, that played many games in the first part of this campaign, when Courtois was out for an injury:

“Begovic played very well when Courtois was injured. I was really impressed with Asmir when Courtois was out. He had to show everyone he deserved the step up after moving from a smaller club and without a pre-season.”

Chelsea U19 confirm themselves as the best young team in Europe winning the Youth League for the second year in a row.

Chelsea goalkeeper Collins saved a penalty to PSG’s Augustin in the first half, right after Tomori’s goal, and provided other two-three fundamental saves but all the team made a huge effort in this final, showing their quality and fighting spirit.

CHELSEA - Collins; Sterling, Tomori, Clarke-Salter, Aina; Colkett (c), Ali; Maddox, Scott, Palmer; Abraham.

PSG – Descamps; Georgen, Toure, Eboa Eboa, Coucoure; Demoncy, Nkunku, Bernede; Meite, Augustin, Bernede

Chelsea have recently been linked with transfers from Italian club Juventus.

The Juventus boss Marotta has revealed to Radio Rai that he wants to business with Conte and Chelsea in the future and that they have respect for each other.

“We respect each other. We’re proud that Conte is now their manager, as five years ago we took a risk on him against many odds.

“I hope we can make some transfer dealings with Chelsea in the future.”

Since, Chelsea have been linked with Paul Pogba and Leonardo Bonucci.

Chelsea midfielder Oscar has thrown his future into further doubt at Stamford Bridge after the Brazilian international told boss Guus Hiddink that he was too sick to play in the game against Manchester City and withdrew himself from the squad.

Injured Eden Hazard watched the game from the side lines but Oscar didn’t even make it to the stadium to show his support.

Oscar was slightly unfavoured under Jose Mourinho and hasn’t impressed Guus Hiddink much either with Willian usually making the team before his Brazilian team-mate, Chelsea could listen to offers from clubs this summer in an attempt to sell the 24-year-old.
