    GOOD MORNING BLUES FANS

    Chelsea were one of many clubs to try and tempt Marc-Andre ter Stegen during the transfer window.

    According to Mundo Deportivo, the Blues urged the goalkeeper to reject a new Barcelona contract.

    Juventus and Inter Milan were also poking at Ter Stegen, 28, in a bid to lure him away from the Blaugrana.

    But, with his contract to 2022 currently up for renewal, the German apparently wants to remain in Spain.

    Meanwhile, Ben Chilwell has hailed Thiago Silva’s immediate impact at Chelsea.

    Chilwell said: “Ever since he came in the building, when he is in the room he has a presence about him.

    “He makes everyone want to do well and standards will never slip, which they shouldn’t anyway.

    “He demands quality and assures the whole team around him so it is great to have him in there with us, and he talks throughout the whole game.”

    Finally, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner both scored as Germany drew 3-3 at home with Switzerland.

    The visitors raced into a 2-0 lead before Werner scored a wonder goal.

    Havertz levelled the scores in the 55th minute but the Swiss went ahead again seconds later.

    However, Serge Gnabry made it 3-3 in the 60th minute before Fabian Schar was sent off for Switzerland in the dying stages.

    FROM SUNSPORT’S MARTIN LIPTON

    Man United and Liverpool may ramp up Euro Super League plans in a bitter twist if Project Big Picture is snubbed.

    SunSport has been told smaller top-flight teams have been threatened with a breakaway European league if they do not agree to the deal.

    It has emerged the Big Six stand to rake in 'hundreds of millions' if they get the rights to sell up to eight games a season on overseas pay-per-view streams.

    According to club sources, the ultimatum came as top flight outfits voiced their private anger at the Project Big Picture proposals, including giving the Big Six a policy veto and a fundamental change in the club revenue split.

    FAN REVOLT

    Premier League clubs are set to spark the 'angriest meeting ever' as they oppose the 'Project Big Six Picture'.

    According to the Mirror, fan groups from Liverpool and Man United will put forward a statement declaring war on the plans.

    That statement will also be backed by Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City.

    It reads: “By floating this latest plan, those behind it are acknowledging football needs to be reformed. It’s something we have been saying for many years. There are some suggestions in this plan that have merit.

    “But we are totally opposed to concentrating power in the hands of six billionaire owners and departing from the one club, one vote and collective ethos of the Premier League.

    “This part of the proposal must be dropped immediately if other elements are to be given serious consideration.”

    KAI IN THE SKY

    Kai Havertz and Timo Werner both scored as Germany drew 3-3 at home with Switzerland.

    The visitors raced into a 2-0 lead before Werner scored a wonder goal.

    Havertz levelled the scores in the 55th minute but the Swiss went ahead again seconds later.

    However, Serge Gnabry made it 3-3 in the 60th minute before Fabian Schar was sent off for Switzerland in the dying stages.

    LEYT CALL

    Leyton Orient chief Nigel Travis backs Man Utd and Liverpool’s Project Big Picture, claiming coronavirus will wipe out Football League clubs in six weeks.

    He told BBC Radio Five Live: “If clubs don't get something soon you will see clubs disappear, I would predict, within five to six weeks.

    “One thing I need to quash is, this isn't about the pandemic, this is about a crisis in football that goes back many years.

    “Before the pandemic, 75 per cent of clubs were losing money – that can't continue.

    “The pandemic has, if you like, exacerbated the problem and we need to get it fixed.

    “I know you are talking about 'Project Big Picture' – this is a great proposal as far as we are concerned.

    “It is certainly very promising and clubs need it. Something like this has to go through.”

  • Anthony Chapman

    TIMO TIME

    Timo Werner has scored a brilliant goal for Germany in their game against Switzerland.

    The visitors were 2-0 up until Werner pulled one back in the 27th minute.

    What a strike!

    MONEY MAKERS

    Premier League clubs will be able to show traditional 3pm Saturday kick-offs under the new 'Project Big Picture' but only on their own channels.

    According to the Times, one of the proposals state that if the broadcast blackout is lifted, clubs would then own the rights to show their matches.

    It means the prospect of top clubs generating even more money from fans.

    Saturday 3pm kick-offs have always been under a British broadcast blackout which was lifted during the pandemic with fans unable to attend matches.

    Premier League clubs will hold a crisis meeting on Thursday where the majority are likely to oppose the new structure.

    HAIR WE GO

    Mason Mount reckons both he and Jorginho had the worst hair when Chelsea players returned from lockdown.

    He said: “There were quite a few! I reckon I was up there. My hair was everywhere and I had a goatee come through.

    “Jorginho’s hair was very long and curly, and I didn’t think it would be able to go like that. He had a big beard as well. It suited him but I have never seen him like that.

    “Everyone has got trimmed now and it is back to normal and I have almost forgotten what everyone looked like before.”

    PART AND PARCEL

    Arsenal star Thomas Partey's dad took a swipe at Chelsea and Juventus by claiming his son was waiting for a 'bigger team' to come in amid their transfer interest.

    Jacob Partey told My Joy Online: “We actually weren't disturbed by anything because we hoped a bigger team will come for Partey.

    “We were aware of the [other teams interested]: Juventus, Chelsea and so forth.

    “All through this we knew God was with us. From that minute we started to dance to 'Party after Party'.”

    PROJECT BIG PITCH

    Man United and Liverpool's radical plans to restructure the Premier League will be outlined at an emergency meeting of all 20 clubs on Thursday.

    The Mail claims Reds owner John Henry and United counterpart Joel Glazer held crisis talks on Monday in the face of rising criticism.

    There is thought to be a recognition that the controversial plan to effectively give the Big Six veto power and a greater share of broadcast revenue may have to be watered down.

    SILVA LINING

    Ben Chilwell has hailed Thiago Silva’s immediate impact at Chelsea.

    Chilwell said: “Ever since he came in the building, when he is in the room he has a presence about him.

    “He makes everyone want to do well and standards will never slip, which they shouldn’t anyway.

    “He demands quality and assures the whole team around him so it is great to have him in there with us, and he talks throughout the whole game.”

    REECE LIGHTNING

    Chelsea fans will be hoping to see Reece James make his first start for England when they face Denmark tomorrow.

    The right-back, 20, made his Three Lions debut off the bench against Wales before coming on in the win over Belgium.

    Not bad for a player who only made his Chelsea bow just over a year ago.

    ALA-BYE

    Juventus are leading the race to sign David Alaba on a free transfer next summer.

    SportMediaSet claims the versatile defender will leave Bayern Munich when his contract expires.

    Man Utd and Chelsea were both linked with moves for Alaba in the last window.

    But the Austrian looks set to join Juve despite also being monitored by Man City and PSG.

    Keeping an eye on tonight’s internationals?

    A number of Chelsea players are in action, with Antonio Rudiger, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner vying to start for Germany against Switzerland in the Nations League.

    A win is vital for Joachim Low’s side as they bid to top Group 4.

    Spain currently lead the way and Kepa Arrizabalaga will hope to start in their trip to Ukraine, both games kicking off at 7.45pm.

    Callum Hudson-Odoi is in contention to feature in England Under-21s’ game against Turkey.

    Hakim Ziyech will not be involved as Morocco face DR Congo in a friendly.

    PET BACK IN THERE

    Chelsea fans were excited to see Petr Cech pull his goalkeeper gloves on for a training ground drill over the international break.

    In the latest episode of the club’s ‘Unseen’ series, the legend popped in between the sticks – leaving fans asking if he can fill in for injured first-choice Edouard Mendy!

    AGAIN, BEN?

    More details emerging of Ben Chilwell’s withdrawal from the England squad.

    Having been ill in the week, the defender’s exit is now being put down to a pre-existing foot injury, by multiple outlets.

    That would be worrying for Chelsea, with a foot problem keeping Chilwell out of action for the first few weeks in West London.

    SEN OFF

    Ian Maatsen is reportedly on the verge of a loan move to Charlton.

    The young left-back has begun training with the League One club and Football Insider reckon the deal is nearly done.

    Frank Lampard handed the 18-year-old his Chelsea debut last season in the Carabao Cup win over Grimsby.

    BLUE BOY

    The where it started vs how it's going social media trend has hit football. And Chelsea's effort for Mason Mount is rather decent.

    KANT BELIEVE IT

    Chelsea have denied claims that N'Golo Kante wants to quit the club in January after falling out with Frank Lampard.

    French outlet Le Parisien claimed the midfielder was furious when Lamps refused to let him skip training to attend a friend's wedding before the international break.

    The same report also alleged that Kante is dreaming of a move to Real Madrid and his team wants to secure a Chelsea exit within the next year.

    Yet a Chelsea spokesperson told the Mail that the story was 'total nonsense'.

    PALM FREE

    Emerson Palmieri remains a target for Juventus and Inter Milan going into the January transfer window.

    Having stayed put during the autumn market, the left-back is once again linked to a Serie A return by Tuttosport.

    Currently on Italy duty, Emerson admitted to struggling with life in West London.

    He stated: “The beginning of the season at Chelsea it is not going as I would like, but I just have to think about working and doing my best when I am on the pitch.”

    HAK EM UP

    Many clubs want players to be given time off during the international break.

    Not Chelsea.

    Morocco’s fixtures are being seen as a prime opportunity to boost Hakim Ziyech’s fitness.

    And the North African nation’s FA have confirmed, according to the Star, that Chelsea asked for Ziyech to be given proper game time in their recent match.

    The midfielder entered after 59 minutes of Morocco’s 3-1 win over Senegal on Friday, making an assist, and is now back in London while his country faces DR Congo tonight.

    TIM TO SHINE

    Timo Werner is back to full fitness after a coronavirus scare.

    Germany boss Joachim Low could hand the striker a start against Switzerland tonight after having to bench him on the weekend.

    After suffering flu-like symptoms, Werner tested negative for Covid-19 and is now back to full strength.

    Low told reporters: “Timo Werner is back to full strength and there are no weaknesses.

    “He is available.”

    Victor Moses WILL complete his loan move to Spartak Moscow, it has been claimed.

    There have been concerns over the winger’s switch, reportedly of a medical nature.

    But Football.London states that the deal will go ahead before the Russian market shuts on Saturday.

    The Chelsea man had been suffering with illness and Gareth Southgate recently confirmed that his fitness needed to be evaluated.

    He said: “There’s a little bit of assessment needed over the next couple of days but he is with the group now.”
