Chelsea loanee Lucas Piazon, who is loaned to Fulham for the second consecutive season, unfortunately broke his leg in a game against Leeds United last night.

The Brazilian midfielder injured himself during the first half of the match, valid for the Championship, who ended 0-0.


Piazon will be probably off for a long period, this is how his current manager, Slavisa Jokanovic, commented the unlucky occurrence:

“We have probably lost Lucas Piazon because we believe it is a bad injury.

“It’s not a question about complaining – it can be bad luck or a tackle outside of the normal – but I’m really disappointed with what I heard from one of the referees who explained: ‘This is English football and this is completely legal.

“I am a 48-year-old man and I’ve never heard an ugly answer like I heard in this stadium.”

“I don’t see so well. I’m a little bit disappointed that I hear around me something so ugly.”

Young Chelsea striker Islam Feruz is wanted by a host of Championship clubs, according to FootballLeagueWorld.

The Scottish U21 international is wanted by Bristol City, Leeds United and Wolves, who are all promising the youngster regular playing time.

Feruz has had previous loan spells with then-Championship side Blackpool and Greek side OFI Crete brought little success.

The 19-year old left Celtic in 2011, but the pacey and instinctive striker lost favour with the Blues. However, now back in the limelight, Feruz has been assured that any contract will guarantee playing minutes for the young striker.

John Stones

Chelsea will make John Stones the most expensive defender in British football when they return with a new offer for the Everton defender.

The Merseysiders have already turned down a bid in excess of £25 million from Chelsea last week, and the champions are willing to increase their bid for the 21-year-old to over £30 million meaning that they would be breaking the record set by Manchester United when they bought Rio Ferdinand from Leeds United in 2002.

Stones is thought of as potential long term replacement for John Terry by some, and a defensive partner for Chelsea’s captain by others, but Everton have so far insisted that he is not for sale.

Have you ever wondered who are the worst-behaved fans in the Premier League right now?

We’re not talking about the stadium atmosphere, but about supporters involved in incidents, especially while travelling.

Now you’ve got the answer: the worst fans are those of Manchester United, since they have been involved in more incidents on England’s trains than any of their rivals.

British Transport Police revealed supporters of the Red Devils were caught up in 36 incidents on the rail network during the past two seasons, that is an impressive number.

The second place is taken by their city rival, Manchester City, with 30 incidents. Third place on a not so special standing for Sunderland supporters, who were involved in 28 episodes.

Chelsea fans share the fifth place with Villa fans, with 24 incidents, while Newcastle are fourth with 27 and city rivals of Arsenal and Spurs share eighth place with 18.

Stoke fans occupy the sixth place with 21 and Everton the seventh with 19.

In the Championship Leeds United fans are on the top of the chart with the incredible number of 77 incidents – more than twice the number of incidents involving Manchester United supporters.

Birmingham City are second with 40 and Nottingham Forest are third with 35.

Millwall fans, that were considered very dangerous, are just in the seventh place, sharing it with Derby County, with only 17 episodes occurred.


After leaving the field for an injury during the second half of his World Cup's debut vs Perù on Saturday, today Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen was included in the Denmark starting XI who faced Australia. The Blues'...
