A round up of the key news stories about Chelsea this morning.
Jose Mourinho has admitted that he is unfair to some of his players.
Mourinho has sometimes left top, consistent players out of his side for important matches this season, leaving several scratching their heads over his thinking.
“I have a bad feeling. It’s not easy for me to leave some players at home, not easy to leave on bench, I think everyone deserves to play. To say someone doesn’t play, you are not selected – in this moment is very hard I feel I’m unfair with all of them,” Mourinho was quoted in the London Evening Standard.
Valencia are reportedly ready to offer £7 million to sign Demba Ba this winter.
The forward is out of favour at Stamford Bridge and behind Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o in the pecking order.
Valencia apparently see Ba as a solid replacement for Roberto Soldado who moved to Tottenham Hotspur over the summer.
West Ham United are also being linked with a move for Chelsea striker Ba.
The Hammers are thought to be keen on adding another striker to their squad, failing to sign Ba during the summer transfer window.
“We tried to get three top loan strikers who play in this country but we failed to get all three. They went elsewhere and played for another club and one (most likely Ba) stayed where he was,” said Sam Allardyce.
