Cech sent a message, which started with ‘Blue is the colour! It hasn’t changed.”

The number of players on loan away from Stamford Bridge has reached 26.

Chelsea sent five players out on loan, including Nathaniel Chalobah and Islam Feruz, during yesterday’s transfer deadline day.

Loic Remy has revealed Jose Mourinho has already set him targets to achieve at Stamford Bridge.

Remy joined Chelsea last weekend as attacking cover for Fernando Torres who has joined AC Milan.
