Report: Luiz done at Chelsea, perhaps as soon as January

Leave a comment

A report out of England says Chelsea defender David Luiz could be out the door in January.

Luiz, 30, has a knee injury and has played in just one match for Chelsea since a Halloween loss to Roma in the Champions League, one that supposedly culminated in a blow-up between the defender and manager Antonio Conte.

He was sold once before by Chelsea, shipped to Paris Saint-Germain for $66 million in 2014 before returning to Stamford Bridge in 2016 for $45 million.

[ MAN CITY-SPURS: 3 things |  Studs and duds ]

Luiz has made just one appearance, a Nov. 22 match in Qarabag, since that Roma loss. He returned to the bench against Liverpool before being diagnosed with a knee injury.

The report says Juventus is a possible destination for Luiz, though the Champions League could be a problem for both sides. Luiz is Cup-tied to Chelsea, and Juventus remains in the UCL as well.

And Chelsea would need reinforcements at the back. It’s back three has operated with Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Gary Cahill. Other options are Antonio Rudiger and 20-year-old Jake Clarke-Salter, which would be fine were Chelsea not alive in four competitions (The League Cup quarterfinals have the Blues hosting Bournemouth on Wednesday).

The power seems a bit more in Luiz’s hands thanks to some of Conte’s sanctioned loans. Kurt Zouma has arguably been Stoke City’s most consistent performer in an under siege unit, one of 10 backs on season-long loans. The most sense is to find reconciliation, presuming the dust-up is real, and move on in the summer if necessary.

What’s in-store for Chelsea following their Champions League exit?

Devastating.

While the 2015-16 Barclays Premier League season has been anything but predictable, one of the most glaring disappointments has been defending champion Chelsea.

[ MORE: Aguero wants Independiente return after 2018 WC ]

The club’s performance following the sacking of manager Jose Mourinho seemed to be a positive sign, particularly their ability to remain unbeaten in the PL since interim coach Guus Hiddink took charge. All of that was forgotten though on Wednesday evening, following the Blues’ aggregate defeat in the UEFA Champions League to Paris Saint-Germain.

Through all of the disastrous moments that have struck Chelsea this season, the team has found its way into the top half of the league table, but one important question still remains.

Where do the Blues go from here?

Wednesday’s showing against PSG further depicted several of Chelsea’s biggest weaknesses, particularly after the exit of forward Diego Costa. The Spaniard managed to level the match before halftime, giving Hiddink’s men life in the match, however, once Costa pulled up limp with an apparent hamstring injury, Chelsea failed to mount consistent attacks when they needed them most.

The Blues simply lack quality options behind Costa up front, and that’s an area that the club certainly needs to examine moving forward. Other than his sometimes questionable reactions on the pitch, Costa is undoubtedly one of the world’s best strikers — when he can stay on the field. While Bertrand Traore has shown flashes of brilliance in his brief time with the club, Loic Remy has been extremely disappointing since joining Chelsea in 2014.

Willian has arguably been Chelsea’s go-to player this season, however, he has often lacked the requisite support in the midfield. Eden Hazard has been a shell of himself during the 2015-16 campaign, recording just two goals in all competitions. With the Belgian international being linked away from Stamford Bridge, the team might have to ask himself if it is worth bringing the 25-year old back to the team next year.

[ MORE: Watch full PL match replays ]

In addition to Hazard, the additions of Pedro and Radamel Falcao have been unfounded for the most part. Falcao’s health has been a big concern, leaving him very few matches to even be afforded an opportunity to make an impact for Chelsea. The team’s recent acquisition on loan for Alexandre Pato has also left fans wondering the club’s state of mind. Pato has yet to see a minute on the pitch, while he battles his own injury woes, but his overall form had been far too sporadic with Corinthians to make the signing seem just.

[ WATCH LIVE: Stream every PL game via Live Extra ]

While finding support for Willian and Costa is critical, the attack isn’t the only worrisome piece of the puzzle for the Blues heading into next season.

After enjoying one of the greatest defensive careers in Premier League history, it appears that John Terry won’t be returning to Chelsea following the conclusion of the season. That absence will leave an even bigger long-term hole in the team than when Terry missed the PSG fixture. Currently, the squad lacks experience at centerback, featuring Gary Cahill, an injured Kurt Zouma, American Matt Miazga and Jake Clarke-Salter. The latter two players have never been seen time on the pitch for the Blues, which is why Branislav Ivanovic was forced into the center over recent weeks.

Despite only playing in a handful of matches this season, versatile Brazilian Kenedy appears to be the real deal. The 20-year old has filled various roles for Chelsea this season, most notably at left back and as a winger. He and Cezar Azpilicueta could be the team’s starting outside backs next season, but again, that’s an area the team needs to acquire depth.

It’s difficult to believe that we’re only one season removed from Chelsea hoisting the Premier League trophy, but owner Roman Abramovich and the team’s next manager must begin to plan for changes because lord knows they need it.

John Terry out of Chelsea’s Champions League clash vs. PSG

1 Comment

Chelsea will be without their captain and defensive lynchpin John Terry for the massive UEFA Champions League last 16 first leg clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

[ MORE: 5 takeaways from huge weekend ]

Terry, 35, was clattered by Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic in the first half of Chelsea’s 5-1 Premier League win against the Magpies on Saturday.

The veteran defender has remained in London instead of traveling with the squad to Paris and the club are calling his injury a “minor problem with his hamstring and ligament.”

It is not known how long Terry will be out for but it appears the damage isn’t too bad as he joined in with a light training session on Monday before the team departed. All of this comes following his statement saying he will not be offered a new deal at Chelsea beyond this season after 21 years of service for the Stamford Bridge club.

Below is the statement from Chelsea’s website, as Oscar is included in the traveling party. Plus U.S. national team youngster Matt Miazga has also made the trip to Paris as Chelsea’s defensive issues worsen with Terry joining Kurt Zouma on the sidelines after the latter ruptured his ACL during the 1-1 draw against Manchester United last Sunday.

Guus Hiddink and the squad set off for France this afternoon ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League Round of 16 first-leg tie against Paris Saint-Germain.

John Terry has not travelled due to a minor problem with his hamstring and ligament. Oscar, who missed Saturday’s 5-1 win over Newcastle, was part of the travelling party having trained at Cobham this morning.

Matt Miazga has also travelled, along with 18-year-old Jake Clarke-Salter, who has been involved with the first team squad since Kurt Zouma was ruled out for the remainder of the season. Nemanja Matic is suspended for tomorrow’s game but has made the trip. Pato has remained in the UK.

It is likely that Guus Hiddink will line his side back four up exactly how they finished the clash against Newcastle with Cesar Azpilicueta at right back, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic at center back and Baba Rahman at left back.

USMNT youngster Miazga may get a spot on the bench at the Parc des Princes against a red-hot PSG side who are flying high at the top of Ligue 1 with a 24-point lead over their nearest rivals. If Miazga does make the matchday squad, it would be his first official involvement in an 18-man squad since the 20-year-old center back arrived in January from the New York Red Bulls.
