Reports from Turkey early on Wednesday claimed two travelling fans had been stabbed on the eve of the Champions League tie.

Chelsea did not confirm the nature of the incidents, but a statement released on the club's Twitter account has warned supporters to steer clear of public transport in the run-up to kick-off.

It read: "The club is aware of two incidents involving fans in Istanbul last night and is working with relevant agencies to best ensure safety of all.

"CFC fans in Istanbul reminded it's not safe to use Metro to and from stadium today. Special bus recommended."

A statement from the British Embassy in Turkish capital Ankara read: "We are aware of the reports and at this stage we don't have anything more to say.

"We're in touch with the club and Turkish authorities."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
