Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham, now at Swansea, is happy after his second cap with England major team against Germany last night.

Speaking after the clash he claimed he’s sure his future will be at Stamford Bridge:

“Yes, it’s been amazing, obviously to make two senior caps is a big achievement for me,” the current Swans striker said after the Wembley game.

“It proves that I am doing the right things. I just have to keep focused and working as hard as I can.”

Chelsea’s academy staff know all about his ability but also mention his love for the game and his unbounded enthusiasm for it :

“Yeah, for me I live football,” Abraham agreed.

“Football has always been in my heart. And every time I step out on that pitch I always want to prove myself and do the best that I can.”

Asked if he can make it to Russia 2018 World Cup:

“Definitely,” was his instant response.

“I’m a person who believes massively in myself, and like the (England) coaches just said to us – we have to go back to our clubs and give 100 per cent and hopefully see what happens.”

Abraham, while focused on his loan club sees his England future at Stamford Bridge:

“Yeah, definitely,” he replied.

“Hopefully that will be the dream really. Like I said, I have to do everything right this season and we will see what happens next season.

“Right now, I’m literally just focused on Swansea. Last season I was focused just on Bristol and this season focused on Swansea. So I just have to keep proving myself and hopefully I’ll get my opportunity.”

Alvaro Morata and Real Madrid: a never ending story? After saying, just one week ago, that he was a mistake to join again the Blancos, after his experience with Juventus, now the Spanish striker seems to have changed his mind, not about the past, but probably about the future.

Of course I would go back to Madrid after I win everything with Chelsea. It’s hard to say no to Real Madrid for every player you ask around the world,” – Morata told Cadena Ser.

Michy Batshuatyi was Chelsea man of the match in yesterday’s win against Watford: the Belgian entered the pitch for Alvato Morata when the team were losing 2-1 and immediately made an impact on the game, finding the equaliser some minutes later with a perfect header.

After Cesar Azpilicueta scored the winner with two minutes to go, the Belgian striker found the goal that sealed the game during injury time.

In the post match press conference Blues boss Antonio Conte wanted to praise him for his precious contribution in this important win:

“Don’t forget Michy is a young player. For him this is the first big experience with a great team.

“Today the impact was incredible and important, it must continue in this way: work, work, work.

“To have the passion to improve and understand he has to wait for his moment and then when he has the chance to show he has improved.”

Roma star Edin Dzeko knows really well Premier League sides and English football, having played four seasons in Manchester City.

Speaking to The Guardian ahead of tonight’s clash in Champions League against Chelsea, the Bosnian striker claimed:

“They are a very good team.

“I watch the Premier League every weekend and I was impressed with them last season.

“Conte gave them a different dimension, I would call that an Italian dimension.

“They are packed with fantastic individuals and a joy to watch, and no team can say it will be easy to go to Stamford Bridge and beat them.

“They are one of the teams that can win the Champions League this season.”

Chelsea have joined Paris Saint Germain, Inter and Manchester United in the race for Serie A golden boy Pietro Pellegri.

The Genoa forward, only 16, is one of the new Serie A sensations, having scored already 3 goals in only 7 games with the first team ( and not always as a starter).

Genoa outlet Il Secolo XIX, claims the competition has got even stiffer as PSG have entered the race for Pellegri in the last days.

The French champions are reportedly scouting the Italian and they are preparing to swoop, even if Inter was ready to place a bid for him and another Genoa’s young talent, Eddy Salcedo ( who turned 16 last week).

Genoa, however, are hoping that Pellegri will opt to stay for at least two more years at the Rossoblu.

After his positive message on the social media last Monday Chelsea star Alvaro Morata rises again hopes of a quick recovery from his hamstring injury.

The Spanish striker got injured in last weekend clash against Manchester City, suffering a grade II hamstring sprain.

But in this new video posted on social media the Blues forward, training on a stationary bike, seems set for a quick recovery: he could be fit enough to play against Crystal Palace next weekend, when Premier League will restart after the international break.

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi revealed that last summer he was convinced to stay at Stamford Bridge side by his compatriot Eden Hazard:

“It was friendly advice. When he said that, he thought a third striker was going to come, but in the end, there’s only two of us for one place,” the 24-year-old is quoted by Dhnet.be.

“I want to succeed at this club and my relationship with Alvaro [Morata] is very healthy.

“I don’t want to leave during the next transfer window, because we’re going to play a lot of games and I will certainly get an opportunity.”

The Belgian striker scored 5 goals in this season so far: 2 in Champions League ( one against Qarabag and the winner against Atletico Madrid last week)  and 3 in League Cup ( a hat-trick against Nottingham Forest).

As we reported before Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata set the time for his hamstring injury recovery with a post on social networks, claiming he was aiming to come back to action against Crystal Palace.


But not even an hour after the post, the Spanish forward deleted it from Twitter and changed the caption on the Instagram one, still appearing online at the moment, saying: “I have no time to lose! Working hard towards recovery!?”

This could mean that the return against the Eagles is difficult now, with Morata targeting the Champions League clash against Roma on 18 October or the one against Watford on the 21, even if he is most likely to return on 25 October against Everton in League Cup.

Alvaro Morata joined Chelsea last summer and had a quick adaptation in England, scoring 6 goals in 6 Premier League games, but former Blues striker Fernando Torres revealed he was ready to help him

Torres didn’t make a great impact at Chelsea– not fulfilling all the expectations after his £ 60m record signing in 2011 – but he remained in the hear of many Blues fans and the Atletico forward has got a special feeling for Chelsea as well.

This is why he revealed that he was ready to help Morata in his first months at Stamford Bridge:

“I spoke with him (Morata) before he joined Chelsea and told him I would be always on the phone if he needed any advice or if I could help him,” Torres claimed today before the Champions League clash between the two teams.

“Looking at the start he has made it doesn’t look like he needs any advice at all, already he is playing well and scoring goals.

“Chelsea have one of the best strikers in Europe and I am sure he is going to win trophies with them.”

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill speaks about Alvaro Morata saying he is not feeling the pressure and he demonstrates it by scoring a lot of goals in the Premier League.

“It’s great that, after Diego, we have another striker coming in and scoring straight away”. – Cahill said – I’m sure Alvaro wasn’t surprised by the pressure. He knew that it would be there when he joined and he came from a huge club anyway. Being a striker for Chelsea comes with a lot of pressure, but he has played with big players and big teams. He knows how to handle that and I don’t think it has been an issue at all. The easiest thing I found when I joined was that I knew a few people beforehand. It was early doors but I was in there with Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and John Terry. A few familiar faces helps and there are obviously a few Spaniards that Morata knows here. He is a fantastic guy, down to earth. His personality makes it very easy to get on with him. You can see from his performances that he is enjoying life at Chelsea.”


Ahead of tomorrow's Premier League game between Chelsea and Liverpool many are focusing their attention on Salah who has already netted 14 goals this season and is also a former Blues...
