Goalkeeper Petr Cech commits another four years to the club with a lucrative deal worth just over 20 million whilst Carl Magnay leaves the club on a free transfer. Unfortunately we could not turn round our Champions League form and have finished third in Group G, sending us the Europa League First Knockout Round where we will face Israel outfit Hapoel Tel Aviv in a two-legged confront. The Winner of that will play Lazio or Benfica in the Second Knockout Round. The FA Cup Third Round has drawn us against Middlesborough away & we face Leicester City in the League Cup Semi Final. Youngster Mbaye Niang has signed a three year professional contract with the club now that he is 17 & has started training with the first team. He made his debut, coming on in the 72nd minute against Sunderland and managed to get his name on the scoresheet twice, proving his 8 million value. His fellow youth team-mate Nathaniel Chalobah has also signed a two year contract and will be considered for first team duties aswell.

Juan Mata fell and broke his arm and is out for 5-6 weeks.
