Is this an indication that tactically Arsene Wenger is not any better than Roberto Di Matteo?
Nicklas Bendtner is set for his first Arsenal appearance since August 2011 against West Brom. Arsene Wenger will rest some of his key players, including Jack Wilshere, while Theo Walcott needs stomach surgery. West Brom's second-round hat-trick hero Saido Berahino is pushing for a start, having come off the bench in Saturday's win over Sunderland. His cause will be strengthened by the expected absence of injured strikers Shane Long and Matej Vydra. West Brom continued their recent record of bringing about a Premier League manager's demise when their 3-0 win over Sunderland resulted in Paolo Di Canio being sacked last weekend. Roberto Di Matteo, *** McCarthy, Andre Villas-Boas and now Di Canio have all departed after league defeats against the Baggies in the last 18 months. With approaching 20 years in the job and his side top of the Premier League, there'll be no such insecurity for Arsene Wenger at The Hawthorns. The Gunners' recent record against the Baggies - winning the last four meetings - will give ...
Warren Little It has been 10 tumultuous years, the greatest decade in Chelsea history. Three titles. Five Champions League semi-finals, capped by that night of glory in Munich last May. Four FA Cup triumphs. Two League Cup wins. Oh, and just the nine managers. But as Rafa Benitez sifted through the wreckage of his trip to the Etihad, the reality facing the Blues was stark. Locked into a fight to the finish for a top four slot, Chelsea now confront the most crucial three months since Roman Abramovich transformed the club into a global powerhouse. And if they do not win what Arsene Wenger controversially claimed as the "third trophy" then the entire future of the club will be changed. Benitez, confident in his own abilities, believed he was the man to transform Chelsea when he was parachuted into the seat still warm from Roberto Di Matteo's backside in November. Yet the results have not come. Where Di Matteo garnered 24 points from 12 Premier League games before being relieved of his command, Benitez has pi ...

Roberto Di Matteo has accepted the blame for Chelsea's 3-0 loss to Juventus on Tuesday which could see the Blues become the first Champions League holders not to progress past the group stage. GettyImages Roberto Di Matteo is facing pressure from fans after Chelsea's third consecutive match without a win • Blog: Di Matteo deserves faith Chelsea need to beat FC Nordsjaelland on the final matchday and hope that Shakhtar Donetsk defeat Juve if they are to have any hope of qualifying from Group E. Di Matteo has come under pressure in recent weeks and his woes were compounded when Chelsea suffered a 2-1 loss to West Brom at the weekend. The Italian sent a warning to his underperforming players by dropping Fernando Torres from the starting line-up in Turin, but the change in tactics proved ineffective and Di Matteo has taken responsibility for the loss. "I'm responsible for the result. I'm responsible for the performance. It's a negative evening for us," he said. "If anyone has to take the blame, it's me. I s ...
I need to remind the Chelsea fans, who have jumped all over the Internet in united fury at the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo, that Roman Abrahamovic owns the south-west London club now. He has invested his millions into the club, saving it from the ruins of Ken Bates’ mindless and ultimately unsuccessful pursuit of a league title in the summer of 2003. Had Roman not ridden into town, Chelsea might not still be in business, never mind having a manager to sack. Another thing, these same fans cannot have celebrated every trophy and title won in the nearly 10 years of Roman’s ownership and turn around to call him names and query his style of management. It is utterly hypocritical. It is odious even. What is "continuity" in football as we currently know it? Let's ask the Chelsea fans, who are claiming anger, if they would rather the continuity that has seen Arsene Wenger continue in his job for the past seven years without a trophy to show for it or Roman's methods that have made Chelsea the most successful ...

A Philosopical Rant Following on from last week's discussion of whether or not Brendan Rodgers' self-proclaimed 'philosophy' should grant more time and patience with the Liverpool support I wanted to bring to light a trend that is worrying me within modern football. Last week somebody touched upon the fact that rather than go in with his own innovative ideas, Rodgers is seemingly content with attempting to turn Liverpool into the next in a long line of teams that could be condescendingly referred to as 'Barcelona-lite'. This isn't an attack on the new Reds boss alone as the very same crime has been committed by numerous managers over the past decade or so in which the Catalans have enjoyed so much success - his is just the most recent. A wide variety of managers from the genius of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger to the new kids on the block such as Andre Villas-Boas and Roberto Di Matteo all seem to prescribe to the 'if you can't beat them, join them' mantra that has seen their respective sides attemp ...

Roberto Di Matteo has joined Arsene Wenger in rejecting calls for The Rooney Rule: writes
Sir Alex Ferguson has warned Rio Ferdinand that he must comply with instructions to wear a Kick It Out T-shirt before today's game with Stoke City at Old Trafford, despite the Manchester United defender considering a boycott over what he perceives to be the failure in the handling of the John Terry affair. Roberto Di Matteo has admitted for the first time that John Terry's abuse of Anton Ferdinand had damaged Chelsea's image. Roberto Di Matteo insists he has no regrets about Chelsea's handling of the John Terry racism affair and claimed that the disgraced defender remains a suitable figurehead for the club. Arsene Wenger has told the nation not to go "bonkers" over Jack Wilshere's imminent return after the Arsenal manager changed his mind and put the midfielder in contention to play his first game in 14 months today.

Ghanaian striker Waris Majeed is being linked with a move away from BK Hacken – but his coach wants him to join Arsenal rather than Chelsea. Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo sent scouts to watch the player at the weekend, according to the Daily Mail, with the 21-year-old hitting a hat-trick against Syrianska. Representatives from Everton and FC Porto were also in attendance. However, coach Peter Gerhardsson has revealed that he ‘might say yes’ if an offer is made from Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. “As a coach you always want to keep your players but sometimes you have to realise when the player is good enough (to leave). I just hope that in this case, he ends up in the best environment,” Gerhardsson told Aftonbladet.se. “If he’s going to Arsenal, I might say yes. They do not have any forwards.” The website goes on to claim that Gerhardsson is a big fan of the Gunners, which would explain why he’d willing to let the 22-goal striker leave for the Emirates Stadium. Chelsea might have other ideas ...

Gervinho's powerful finish put Arsenal level before the interval but Roberto Di Matteo's side claimed the points early in the second half when Mata's long-range free-kick took the slightest touch off Koscielny and beat Vito Mannone before he could react. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger regarded this match of a measure of his side's title potential - and they had the opportunity to rescue a point only to find Chelsea keeper Petr Cech in defiant mood. He saved brilliantly from Lukas Podolski's second-half header and produced a superb reflex save from Olivier Giroud's deflected shot, the France striker also missing a great stoppage-time opportunity when he hit the side-netting after evading Cech's challenge. Torres too good Fernando Torres' early strike was his 75th goal in the Premier League. Only Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie have scored more since Torres got his first in 2007. The Blues will see this as a landmark win as Di Matteo continues to shift the emphasis in personnel and tactical approach after ...
Di Matteo's right call on Terry 2 hours ago Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo felt his decision to play John Terry was vindicated after the Blues captain came through the expected hostile reception at Arsenal to lead the team to a 2-1 victory. Former England skipper Terry was earlier this week found guilty of using racist language towards Anton Ferdinand by a Football Association hearing. He was on the field as Fernando Torres fired Chelsea ahead and Juan Mata's free-kick squirmed in to secure three points for the European champions after Gervinho had equalised. Di Matteo said: "It was the right side from my choice to pick him today. John showed his leadership qualities and what a good defender he is for the team." Despite the heckles of the home support, Terry was as usual cheered on throughout by the Chelsea fans. At the final whistle, Terry made a point of heading over to the travelling support, and handed his boots to some young fans. Di Matteo said: "There is always a lot of talk about the negative s ...
Di Matteo: Gunners model different 8 hours ago Chelsea may be playing more like Arsenal but there is one way in which they will always differ while Roman Abramovich remains their owner. Asked on Friday whether he would still be manager if he went seven years without winning a trophy like Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, Roberto Di Matteo said: "What do you think?" Di Matteo acknowledged Chelsea and Arsenal had two completely different philosophies when it came to achieving success, and ahead of the Barclays Premier League clash between the sides, the Blues boss added: "I think it's great that Arsene Wenger has been able to work so many years at a big club like Arsenal. But they are two different kinds of models. I didn't say inferior. Just different." Never mind seven years - Di Matteo would be lucky to survive seven months if it looked like he might fail to build on last season's extraordinary Champions League and FA Cup double. And that applies not just to results but performances after the way the Blues fin ...
[Di Matteo - Drogba's the past] - Roberto Di Matteo is looking for Chelsea to show they can be successful without Didier Drogba as they prepare to take on Arsenal for the first time since the striker's departure. Drogba terrorised the Gunners during his eight-year stint at Stamford Bridge and Arsene Wenger admitted earlier this week that his side were relieved not to be playing against the Ivory Coast international. His departure has heralded a transformation in the way Chelsea play and Di Matteo no longer wants to dwell on what Drogba brought to the team. "Didier Drogba has been a fantastic player for this club for many years, but we have to move on from that," said Di Matteo. "That's the past. We're looking to the future now."

And he is ready to finance a £15million bid by selling Kop flop Andy Carroll. Walcott has one year left to run on his contract and has yet to agree a new deal at the Emirates. He earns £65,000 a week and is looking to be brought into line with other England internationals in the Premier League on £100,000 a week. Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is ready to make an official bid for Walcott, 23, while former Blues chief Carlo Ancelotti is keen to take the player to Paris St Germain. But Rodgers, looking to bring in new faces on Merseyside, believes Walcott could become a major star at Anfield. Last night, Liverpool knocked back Newcastle’s offer to take former Toon ace Carroll back on loan. It is thought Kop bosses want a permanent deal to raise money for new signings. Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is likely to come back with a new offer to take Carroll on a cut-price permanent deal — just 18 months after selling the 6ft 3in striker for £35m. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is desperate to keep Walcott — ...

WENGER: BARCELONA OF NOW IS NOT THE BARCELONA OF LAST YEAR. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stated that Barcelona are not at the same level as they were last year, and that Chelsea have a realistic chance of advancing to the Champions League final. The Frenchman has stated that the Blaugrana are tiring and that a 1-0 home win gives the Blues a stronger result going to Camp Nou than the Gunners had last year Pep Guardiola's side have lost consecutive matches for the first time in three years, against Roberto Di Matteo's men and arch-rivals Real Madrid in La Liga, and Wenger believes that Chelsea could now knock them out of the competition. That would, mentally, be a massive blow to Barcelona because I have seen last year when we scored… it was a lucky goal but I could see suddenly that they became very nervous. At the moment Messi looks a bit tired, although he is still dangerous. Chelsea managed to block a few shots from him on Wednesday night but usually he has such a short back‑lift it is difficul ...
