The Tottenham winger Eric Lamela has urged his team to to take advantage of Chelsea’s poor start to the season. But at the same time he warns that Chelsea are an unpredictable team that at any time can get back into top form.

After Spurs’s 1-1 draw at Arsenal on Sunday, Lamela is really optimistic about the future. He is convinced, that Tottenham are able to finish in the Premier League top four, taking advantage of Chelsea’s disastrous start to the season.

Lamela told Standard Sport:

”This is our best chance. The team has improved and also Chelsea are not so well placed in the league, and they were one of the teams expected to be fighting for the top positions.”

”I’ve had a great desire to play in the Champions League, ever since I got here. This year we are closer than in other years. At certain times you can see we are a team who can get into the top four but we need to carry on working.”

”We are getting better and that is important. This team is young and we have a lot of desire to improve. If you have ambition, you can achieve great things. But we have to keep winning, because Chelsea are a team who can get better in any moment.”

“Last year against the big teams we did well, just as we have done this year. Any team can beat any other in the Premier League and it depends on what happens in the moment.”

The former Arsenal midfielder Ian Wright has serious doubts whether Jose Mourinho is the right person that will be able to lead Chelsea out of trouble this season.

The Blues are currently 16th in the Premier League table with only 11 points from 12 games and the catastrophic balance of seven defeats. According to Wright, Mourinho is not used to so many defeats and can not cope with the output of the Chelsea’s crisis.

Wright said:

”I think he’ll be very touched by the Chelsea fans’ support,” 

”One thing that people keep saying is ‘if there’s one person who can get us out of this it is Jose.”

“This is the first time that he’s had this many defeats. He’s not used to it. ”

“I’m not sure Jose is the man to get them out [of trouble]. I know how much Chelsea fans love him and I don’t want to get this wrong, but he’s not used to this kind of situation.”

Chelsea are reportedly lining up bids for Javier Hernandez and Paco Alcacer, in a bid to solve their goalscoring problems, say ESPN. 

The Blues have struggled to find the net in what has been a dire title defence thus far, having found the net just 16 times in their opening 12 league games.

Chelsea’s three recognised strikers, Diego Costa, Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao, have scored just three league goals between them this season – Costa scored 20 in the last campaign.

With this poor form in mind, ESPN claim that sources state Chelsea are lining up Hernandez, who has scored 12 goals in 19 games for club and country this season.

The former Manchester United striker has beeen very impressive since moving to German side Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, with manager Michael Schade stating that the Mexican has “exceeded all expectations.”

Valencia striker Alcacer is also reportedly being scouted by Chelsea, the 22-year old being regarded as one of the best young strikers in Europe.

Jose Mourinho was supposedly keen on a move for Alcacer last summer, before the Spaniard signed a five year deal with the La Liga side. He has scored five goals in the league so far this season, as well as another five goals to help Spain qualify for Euro 2016.

Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma has been ruled out of France’s U21 side after picking up an ‘unspecified injury.’

The 21-year old played the full 90 minutes in the Blues’ 1-0 loss to Stoke at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

But the injury means he will miss Les Blues Under-21 2017 Euro Championships qualifiers with Northern Ireland on Thursday and Macedonia on Sunday.

With the nature of the injury unknown, it is unclear how long the former St. Etienne defender will be ruled out for. Zouma himself had recently found himself in the full-back position for Chelsea, with Branislav Ivanovic out with a hamstring injury.

Abdou Diallo of Zulte-Waregem has been called up to replace Zouma.

Ian Wright has said that Chelsea should sell striker Diego Costa, after a series of incidents involving the Spaniard this season. 

The former Arsenal midfielder said that Costa is the ‘last centre forward’ the Blues need, with Jose Mourinho’s side having suffered their worst start in over 30 years.

“I would sell him at the first opportunity I get because, as brilliant as he was in the first season, he is playing differently,” said Wright.

Costa himself is also in a poor run of form, having scored just two goals in 12 games this season. The 27-year old scored 20 goals, including seven in the opening four games of the season, last term.

He has also been in hot water with the FA in recent weeks, having been given a three-game ban for violent conduct after the 2-1 win against Arsenal, after an incident with Gunners defender Laurent Koscielny.

The former Atletico Madrid striker went unpunished for an apparent stamp on Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel, before gesturing to Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross that his armpits stank in the 1-0 loss at the Britannia Stadium last weekend.

“He seems a little bit more antagonising,” Wright, who is a TV pundit, said to the London Evening Standard.  

“The first season he got here he was focusing on scoring goals, being in the box. Now he’s outside the box, he’s getting involved with people. 

“I believe at this moment now, he’s the last centre forward you need. You need a centre forward who’s going to get on with it, stretch teams and cause teams problems in the right way.”

According to the Sun, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has asked Roman Abramovich for a permission to remove the players he considers to be bad apples in the squad and get the club moving in the right direction again.

The paper claims that Mourinho has asked Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to let him axe under-performing stars during the winter transfer window. However, it remains unknown which players has in mind the Portuguese coach.

A source close to Mourinho told SunSport:

“He wants to get to the January transfer window to remove the players he considers to be bad apples in the squad and get the club moving in the right direction again.”

”Jose does not want deadlines put on him for improvement but Roman has told Mourinho he needs to see signs of an upturn.”
