Hello everyone and welcome to football.london’s live Chelsea blog on Monday.
It’s a new week and we’re a day closer to the Blues finally getting back into some Premier League action after the international break. In the mean time though, a number of players are away representing their nations and we’ll bring you the latest on how they are performing.
When they return, Thomas Tuchel will be gearing his side up for a battle with west London rivals Brentford before welcoming Real Madrid to the capital for a Champions League quarter-final tie. There’s also the semi-finals of the FA Cup that is set for the middle of April, where there will be another London derby between the Blues and Crystal Palace.

Off the pitch, there’s also plenty to be keeping an eye on when it comes to Chelsea. A deadline has reportedly been set on any preferred bidders to get their offers in for any takeover at Stamford Bridge.
With Raine having narrowed down to just four names, it will be interesting to see which follow through and seal what could be a record-breaking deal for the Blues. Rest assured, we will be bringing you the latest developments.
Any potential takeover could also allow Tuchel to strengthen his squad in the summer, with a number of players linked with a switch to Chelsea. We’ll also bring you the latest transfer news and rumours as they break.
With all of that being said, make sure you keep the blog locked all day so that you don’t miss a single thing.
