Diego Costa must solve his club situation to make Spain comeback - Julen Lopetegui

Spain head coach Julen Lopetegui has reiterated that Chelsea striker Diego Costa should find a solution to his club future in order to return to the national team fold.


The Spain international has not played a competitive game since representing La Roja in a 2-1 victory over Macedonia in a World Cup qualifier in June.

Following the game, Costa had received a text message from Antonio Conte citing that he was longer part of his first-team plans and the 28-year-old has since refused to return to Blues training in order to push through an exit. Atletico Madrid looked favourites to sign him during the summer transfer window, but they were not prepared to pay a hefty chunk knowing that they could only play him until January when their transfer ban concludes.

CARVALHO SENT TO JAIL IN SPAIN

Spanish authorities have sentenced former Chelsea star Ricardo Carvalho to jail for fraud, according to reports, with the former Real Madrid man, and one of the most popular players to watch on socagol, was sentenced to seven months in prison aside fines about 143,000 Euros.

As has been the case with other famous footballers - including the likes of stars like Leo Messi and co - sentences under two years for non-violent crimes which are given to defendants without previous convictions come without actual jail time, meaning fans can continue to watch their favourite players in action on fussballlivestream.tv regardless.

Ray Wilkins insists Chelsea are significantly weaker than last season

Chelsea favourite Ray Wilkins insists that the Blues have significantly weakened their squad following their transfer business in the summer.


The Premier League holders lost 1-0 to Manchester City in their recent outing, and this leaves them six points behind Pep Guardiola's side, heading into the international break.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Wilkins believes the Blues failed to adequately strengthen their options having let the likes of John Terry, Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa leave the club. Terry ended his 21-year association with the Blues to join Aston Villa while Matic and Costa followed suit with permanent moves to Manchester United and Atletico Madrid respectively.

Alvaro Morata admits that he is still adapting to Premier League football

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has admitted that he is still adapting to the Premier League despite making a strong start to his Blues' career.


The Spain international could not convert a crucial penalty in the Community Shield loss to Arsenal, but he has since turned it around with two goals in three league outings.

The 24-year-old has had the odd blunder with an open header missed at Tottenham Hotspur, but overall, the former Real Madrid star appears to have found his feet in the English top flight. Speaking to the club's official website, Morata was pleased to have provided a goal and assist in the 2-0 triumph over Everton, and he is 'very happy' to ply his trade for the Blues.
