Chelsea had £90m bid for Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak rejected

Merson thinks Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez can keep out Spurs

Three days after Chelsea paid the €80 million (£71.5m) buyout clause in his Athletic Bilbao contract to replace the Real Madrid-bound Thibaut Courtois, Kepa enjoyed a relatively quiet afternoon at the John Smith's Stadium.

The 26-year-old returned to Stamford Bridge in 2014 following a three-year loan at Atletico Madrid, where his family set up life in the Spanish capital.

"We are lucky now because we can work with one match a week".

"If the family was in London, it would have been totally different".

Henrotay said that he wanted to move to Spain to be closer to his children, who have moved there from London. Of course, he would have stayed. However, the Brazilian worldwide has stayed at the club and the manager and the fans will be hoping that Hazard stays as well. He has won trophies.

"Unfortunately, his children live with their mother in Madrid, so he has personal reasons and we have to respect them".

A persistent and troublesome back injury stymied a strong start to Alvaro Morata's Chelsea career, but he showed no sign of turning around the form that has seen him net just once in the Premier League this year.

In total, Ronaldo scored 15 goals at World Cups and won the competition's Golden Boot award for the top scorer on one occasion. The paper quoted sources from the hospital who said he was still in intensive care but making good progress.

Chelsea's second came after Schindler had tripped Marcos Alonso, referee Chris Kavanagh being berated for the decision but he got the ball right.

"They did a really quick and easy deal together, understanding the humanity of the situation".

"It's true that some players push and it's true that at certain moments Thibaut was getting a bit stressed by the situation because Madrid made an offer and he had an opportunity to go", said Courtois' agent.

Sarri added: "The club was willing and we took a great goalkeeper, very young but he can become a great goalkeeper".

"I think that Eden in this moment can not play for 90 minutes".

Henrotay said he understand Chelsea fans' anger, especially because they lost a goalkeeper of Courtois' quality, but insisted they should not feel that way.

When Sarri's Napoli team played RB Leipzig in a European tie, the German club set up a specially designed smoking room for him, though this won't be possible during his tenure at Chelsea.
