Chelsea morning news: Mourinho to escape punishment, Drogba's warning

A round up of news stories this morning about Chelsea.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is unlikely to face punishment over his comments about referee Anthony Taylor.

Taylor booked Cesc Fabregas for simulation during Chelsea’s game against Southampton after an incident Mourinho feels should have been a penalty.

“I think it is a scandal because it is not a small penalty - it is a penalty like Big Ben - He made a big mistake like I make, like the players make sometimes,” said the boss.

Didier Drogba has sent out a warning to Manchester City in the Premier League title race.

The striker says ‘the game is on’ as Chelsea look to defend their lead heading into the New Year.

“I think it's going to be tough - I think now we start again a new championship. I think the game is on,” said the forward.

Tomas Kalas is being tipped to move to Queens Park Rangers on loan, with reports suggesting he’ll return early from a spell with Cologne.

He’s being tipped to have his future sorted out over the next two days, before the start of the January transfer window.
