Willian joined The Blues three years ago in summer 2013 from Russian club FC Anzhi Makhachkala. Since then, Willian has made 140 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions.

After agreeing to the terms, Willian said, “I’m very happy to sign a new contract with Chelsea. It’s a dream to continue with this club and over the next four years I will try to help the team win more trophies.”

The player has scored nineteen goals for Chelsea, of which thirteen were scored last season.

Under José Mourinho’s management, Willian has won the Premier League title and League Cup in 2014–2015. Last season, Willian was voted the best player in the club by its supporters.

After completing the unsuccessful campaign with Brazil in the Copa América Centenario last month, Willian arrived at the Chelsea F.C. training facility on Monday.

Last week, Chelsea signed 22-year-old Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi.

Today, association football club Manchester United F.C. announced they appointed Portuguese José Mourinho as their new manager for the next three seasons with an option to stay at the club until 2020. Mourinho’s predecessor Louis van Gaal was fired on Monday after two-years of service at Old Trafford.

—Ed Woodward, Manchester United Vice-Chairman

Manchester United finished in fifth position in the Premier League this season under Dutchman Louis van Gaal and missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification, but won the FA Cup 2–1 against Crystal Palace.

Mourinho previously served London-based club Chelsea in two spells and won the Premier League with them three times, lastly in the 2014–15 season. He also worked with Spain’s capital club Real Madrid winning one La Liga title with Los Blancos, Champions League and domestic league titles with Portuguese club FC Porto and Italian club Internazionale.

Mourinho has a 66% win record and 2.19 points-per-match ratio in the Premier League, the best in the league. In his first season (2004-05) at Chelsea, The Blues won the title with a record high 95 points.

Ed Woodward, Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman, praised Mourinho saying “Jose is quite simply the best manager in the game today. He has won trophies and inspired players in countries across Europe and, of course, he knows the Premier League very well, having won three titles here”. Mourinho said, “It is a club known and admired throughout the world. There is a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match”.

Mourinho has won trophies in four different countries. His team is to face German side Borussia Dortmund and local rivals Manchester City in club friendlies during July.

On Monday, Leicester-based football club Leicester City secured their first Premier League title as London-based clubs Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur drew 2–2 at Stamford Bridge.

Leicester City played 36 matches and collected 77 points. On Sunday, they drew 1–1 with Manchester United at Old Trafford. But Monday’s draw eliminated the mathematical possibility of Spurs equalling the point tally of The Foxes with only two matches to play and a lead of seven points.

Leicester lost only three times in those 36 matches, once against Liverpool and twice against Arsenal. Since November 21, after a 3–0 victory against Newcastle United, The Foxes have stayed at first position in the League table.

Cquote1.svg The players have been fantastic. Their focus, their determination, their spirit has made this possible. Cquote2.svg

—Claudio Ranieri, Leicester City Manager

The Foxes were seen as underdogs at the beginning of the season as they managed to escape relegation in the 2014–2015 season where they needed 21 points from their last nine matches. Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy were key players on Claudio Ranieri‘s team. Vardy netted 22 goals in 34 appearances in League matches — including goals in 11 matches consecutively, a League record. While Riyad Mahrez won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award last week, Jamie Vardy was voted the footballer of the year by the Football Writers’ Association.

Manager Claudio Ranieri was full of praise for his team’s togetherness and diligence over the course of the season. “The players have been fantastic. Their focus, their determination, their spirit has made this possible. Every game they fight for each other and I love to see this in my players. They deserve to be champions.”

The League trophy is to be presented to The Foxes after their upcoming game against Everton. They also qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time in the club’s 132-year history.

Yesterday, Leicester based football club Leicester City won their first Premier League title as London based clubs Chelsea drew 2–2 to Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge.

Leicester City played 36 matches and collected 77 points. On Sunday, they drew 1–1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford. But yesterday’s draw eliminated mathematical chances of Spurs equalling that point tally of The Foxes as they have seven-point lead with two matches to play.

They lost only three times in these 36 matches, once against Liverpool and twice against Arsenal. Since November 21, after a 3–0 victory against Newcastle United, Foxes did not give away the first position in the League Table.

The Foxes were seen as the underdogs in the beginning of the season as they managed to escape relegation in 2014-2015 season where they gained 21 points from their last nine matches. Algerian Riyad Mahrez and Englishman Jamie Vardy were the key players of Claudio Ranieri‘s army. Vardy netted 22 goals in 34 appearances in the League matches and also became the first player to score in first eleven matches of the League. While Riyad Mahrez won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award last week, Jaimie Vardy was voted the footballer of the year by the Football Writers’ Association.

Manager Claudio Ranieri was full of praise for his teams’ togetherness and diligence over the course of the season, “The players have been fantastic. Their focus, their determination, their spirit has made this possible. Every game they fight for each other and I love to see this in my players. They deserve to be champions.”

Leicester is now the sixth different club to have won the Premier League after the likes of Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City.

The Foxes will be presented with the Premier League trophy after their next home game against Everton. They will play their final game of the season away to former champions, Chelsea. They also qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time in the club’s 132-year history.

The Gunners were reduced to ten men in the 18th minute. Per Mertesacker brought down Diego Costa after a pass from Willian gave Costa a good opportunity to run towards Arsenal’s goal, and the referee showed Mertesacker the red card. Five minutes later, Costa scored at close range from Branislav Ivanović‘s cross, putting the visitors 1–0 ahead.

The local derby saw four yellow cards and at least 25 fouls. Oscar was the first player to be booked in the 11th minute. Mathieu Flamini was shown a yellow card for a late tackle on Willian moments before the end of the first half.

The Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger substituted Alexis Sánchez for Joel Campbell in the 57th minute. Three minutes later, Nemanja Matić received a yellow card. Costa was injured during the match, and Loïc Rémy replaced him in the 68th minute. John Obi Mikel was booked in the 72nd minute. The match ended 0–1, and Guus Hiddink‘s team, who had had the greater share of possession of the ball during the match, collected three points.

After the match, Wenger blamed Costa for Mertesacker’s sending-off. Wenger said, “He got him sent off — you cannot say it’s not true.”

In Sunday’s other Premier League match, Everton lost 1–2 at home to Swansea.

Today, London-based football club Chelsea F.C. sacked José Mourinho from the position of the club’s manager.

File photo of Mourinho

Chelsea, the last years’ Premier League champions, have sixteenth position in the league table and very poor performance this season, winning just four games out of sixteen in 2015-2016‘s season. The Portuguese Mourinho has managed the club for seven seasons, in two spells, won the Premier League thrice, FA Community Shield and FA Cup once.

Chelsea, battling relegation, won only fifteen points and are 20 points behind Leicester City. Mourinho signed a four-year contract in August. Mourinho’s last game as Chelsea’s manager was played against Leicester City, in which his side lost 2–1.

Chelsea, on the club’s website released a statement, saying that José and the board agreed this performance was not good and both sides agreed to the move. The statement also said José would still be a much loved figure at Stamford Bridge, and described him as “the most successful manager in our 110-year history.”

Previously, when José was sacked after winning two titles, he won the Champions League with Inter and La Liga with Real Madrid. Before his first signing for Chelsea, he won the Champions League with FC Porto.

Yesterday, Liverpool F.C. defeated Chelsea F.C. 3–1 in the English Premier League in a match at Stamford Bridge stadium. This was the sixth defeat of the season for Chelsea manager José Mourinho and the first victory for recently-appointed Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp in a Premier League match. Throughout the match Liverpool, nicknamed The Reds had much more possession of the ball than Chelsea. 30 fouls were committed, including 21 by Liverpool, and five yellow cards were handed out with four going to Liverpool.

Brazilian Ramires scored in the opening minutes of the game with a header from César Azpilicueta‘s corner kick. Coutinho committed a foul on Willian and was shown a yellow card. Later, in the injury time of the first half of the game, Coutinho scored a goal, providing the equaliser for Klopp’s side. The first half ended with both teams level at 1–1.

In the 65th minute, Chelsea striker Diego Costa avoided a red card for a brutal foul on Martin Skrtel. Coutinho scored a second goal in the 74thminute, assisted by Christian Benteke, providing Liverpool with a 2–1 lead. Benteke further widened the gap in the 83rd minute, with help from Jordon Ibe.

Coutinho was awarded the Man of the Match award. This was the 400th Premier League cap of Liverpool winger James Milner. Chelsea are scheduled to face Ukrainian club Dynamo Kiev in a UEFA Champions League fixture on Wednesday, November 4. Meanwhile Liverpool will be travelling to Russia on Thursday, November 5, to play against Rubin Kazan in the Europa League.

After the match, Klopp expressed admiration for Mourinho saying “he’s one of the best in the world.” Mourinho repeatedly refused to say anything in a post-match interview. He is under pressure because Chelsea, the defending champions, are fighting relegation and earlier this week, they lost to Stoke City 5–4 in a penalty shoot-out in the 2015-16 Football League Cup.

Jose Mourinho under pressure; from file, September 2015.
Image: joshjdss.

London-based football club Chelsea manager José Mourinho said yesterday he will appeal the decision by the English Football Association (FA) to give him a £50,000 fine and suspended one-game stadium ban. The punishments, which Mourinho describes as “astonishing” and a “disgrace”, were given to him for saying referees in Chelsea’s 3–1 defeat to Southampton were “afraid” to award penalties to his side.

At his lunchtime news conference on Friday ahead of Chelsea’s game against Aston Villa on Saturday, Mourinho said: “I have to be honest with myself, that’s the most important thing. […] I think, in the moment, we have got the written reasons and I decided to appeal. So it’s the moment to stop with my opinions and not say anything more than I did already. I was very objective in my sadness facing the situation.”

On Thursday night, during the launch of his new book Mourinho, the Chelsea manager commented: “Every word I say is a big risk for me. I am happy that I don’t have an electronic tag. […] I also think that £50,000 in the world where we live today is an absolute disgrace. […] the possibility of getting a stadium ban is also something absolutely astonishing.”

Mourinho, who has previously been linked to the England manager’s job, said he does not believe his appeal will impact adversely on his chances for that role. “Maybe I am naïve, and I know that ‘naïve’ I can use. But, for me, English football and English football fans, the English passion for the game, what makes me like so much this country and the football in this country, is not the FA. It’s the people. It’s the people. If, one day, I have to work for that people, I will.”

The action by the FA against Mourinho adds to the current pressure facing the Chelsea boss. The club have made their worst start to a season since the late 1970s, averaging only one point per game over eight games.
