CHELSEA appear to be ahead in the race to add Wrexham starlet Daniel Davies to their youth ranks. The highly sought after left-back who has attracted interest from Liverpool is on a week-long trial with the Blues, according to Goal.

But it is thought this year’s Champions League winners are a more appealing destination for the full-back. Due to his bulky build, Davies is being talked of as a young Gareth Bale. The Real Madrid superstar started life as a…

‘Chelsea has gone up a level with Mendy,’ say pundits, praising the Blues midfielder for transforming the club into title contenders. Before Chelsea’s 7-0 win over Norwich, Joe Cole and Chris Sutton praised Edouard Mendy, suggesting the Blues have ‘gone up a level’ since his arrival.

In sharp contrast to last Saturday’s tough 1-0 win at Brentford, the goalie was rarely used against the Canaries. To keep the Bees at bay, Mendy made multiple world-class saves. Mendy is looking like one of…
