Samuel Eto'o: Cameroon striker still to make his debut for Chelsea

The duo made the move to Stamford Bridge during the summer transfer window from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.

Striker Eto'o and Brazilian forward Willian are still to make their debuts for Jose Mourinho's men, with Terry revealing that the pace of preparation at Stamford Bridge is above what they are used to.

The Blues will look to continue their unbeaten start to the season when they tackle Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday evening, live on Sky Sports 1HD.

Terry told Chelsea TV: "You speak to them and they talk about how the intensity of their training is a lot different to how it is here so for sure it will take them a few weeks to get their full fitness.

"But once they do they'll both look very good. I said to him (Eto'o), 'Thank God you're here', because I've had so many battles against him.

"He's such a threat, he's obviously a few years older but he still looks very sharp and hungry.

"He's got an eye for goal and I think he'll be a good addition. He was welcomed straight into the squad."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
