Chelsea's preseason form a worry ahead of Premier League kickoff

The ESPN FC panel talk Diego Costa's impact in Chelsea's performance last season and believe he remains a key player for the club next season.

In terms of results, Chelsea's preseason has not been especially productive. Four games and no wins inside 90 minutes has given rise to many questioning their relative inactivity in the transfer window and the decision to play so few games in the build-up to the new campaign. There is still one more match against Fiorentina to play on Wednesday night, although even a thumping win is unlikely to satisfy those for whom the glass is half empty.

Another way to look at it could be this: Contrary to the...

Diego Costa's ongoing injury issues might force Chelsea to buy

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson assesses whether Chelsea need another option up front for injury-prone Diego Costa.
The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets about the upcoming Premier League campaign and why managers continue to be baited by Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea's pre-season results may have been less than inspiring to date, but they pale to insignificance when compared to the nagging doubts about centre-forward Diego Costa's ability to maintain match fitness.

Saturday sees the Blues begin the defence of their Premier League title with a home game against Swansea, and they may have to manage without the services of their talismanic striker, who hobbled off early in the second half of last week's friendly against Barcelona in Washington and hasn't...

Jose Mourinho and Chelsea could regret lack of transfer activity

The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets about the upcoming Premier League campaign and why managers continue to be baited by Jose Mourinho.

One of the most notable things about the starting lineups for Arsenal and Chelsea in Sunday's Community Shield was their familiarity. Of the 22 players who lined up, only one was a new signing, and that was Petr Cech, signed by Arsene Wenger from Jose Mourinho.

As foolish as it might seem, for the start of a new season it was rather disappointing as a spectator not to see a collection of new faces to run the rule over, coming to hasty and irrational conclusions by either getting prematurely excited...

Wenger-Mourinho spat, Wembley lessons, Bayern doubts, quiet Benitez

The ESPN FC crew react to Roy Keane's comments that Arsenal are too concerned with posting selfies, than winning titles.

The Community Shield is not a real trophy. The game is a friendly, albeit the kind we call high-profile because it's at Wembley and live on the global airwaves. Yet there are still nuggets to be extracted from Arsenal's win vs. Chelsea on Sunday.

First and foremost is that the next time Arsene Wenger faces Jose Mourinho, nobody will be there to remind him that he has never beaten the "Special One." At the 14th attempt, Mourinho's team fell to Wenger's.

That streak, of course, should have been wholly...

Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho's mutual antipathy will continue

Former Arsenal man Paul Mariner contends that Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger need to end their little feud and shake hands.
Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho and long-time rival Arsene Wenger fail to shake hands after the Arsenal manager gets his first career win against Mourinho in a 1-0 defeat at the Community Shield match.
Arsenal defeated Chelsea via a first half goal from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to secure a consecutive Community Shield title over their bitter London rivals.
Chelsea first team manager Jose Mourinho says Arsenal abandoned their attacking philosophies to secure a 1-0 win in the Community Shield on Sunday, but congratulated them on the victory.

LONDON -- What the imminent Premier League season requires is a rivalry at the top, a battle between managers to take the stakes higher still. At Wembley on Sunday, the Community Shield suggested that a grudge match from the past continues to bubble over.

It was made quite clear that time has not thawed relations between the managers of Arsenal and Chelsea, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho. In the 12th year of their acquaintance, they again behaved like teenagers who cannot acknowledge each other's...
