Chile Under-20 star Cuevas impressed in a trial last year and the 18-year-old has signed a contract at Stamford Bridge until 2018 after announcing he had agreed a deal in February.

He came through the youth ranks at O'Higgins before breaking into the first team and playing in the top flight in Chile.

Cuevas played in four of his nations' five games in the U20 World Cup this summer in Turkey and helped Chile to the quarter-finals before losing to Ghana.

Reports in South America had revealed Chelsea offered an initial $2.6million (£2.2m) for the teenager, but his club were rumoured to want $4m (£3.4m) before agreeing to a sale.

"I'm very happy," said Cuevas, who can play at left-back or on the left wing. "Chelsea were following me for more than a year. What I wanted happened, which was joining this club."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
