ASHLEY COLE: CHELSEA'S FINAL LOSS HEARTBREAKING

Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans broke the hearts of watching Chelsea fans across the world as the midfielder's long-range strike in the second half of their FA Cup final clash was enough for the Foxes to win the title on Saturday. The Blues and the Foxes locked horns at Wembley on Saturday evening after finding their way to the final of the competition, but it was the King Power Stadium outfit that had the last laugh after the final whistle was blown.

The two teams had a tight game in the first half and no one could find the breakthrough even though there were a couple of chances from both ends. Both goalkeepers from the two clubs were forced to make crucial saves during the match but it was Peter Schmeichel who was more instrumental between the two goalies.


ASHLEY COLE: CHELSEA SHOULD SIGN HAALAND

Former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole has advised the Blues to break the bank and do everything they can to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland this summer, even though he concedes that he knows how hard it will be to try and convince Dortmund to sell. The German Bundesliga giants have reiterated their long-standing desire to keep hold of the 20-year-old striker, insisting that they do not want to sell him this summer, but that could be hard for them as well.

Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, has reportedly asked the club to allow his client leave in this summer transfer window if any team activates his release clause (of around £70m - £100m) or they could risk losing him on a free transfer to direct rivals Bayern Munich next summer if they do not sell him in this coming transfer window.


Ashley Cole Says What He Thinks About Pulisic's Lack Of Game Time

Former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole has revealed that Christian Pulisic's inability to get more playing time at Stamford Bridge is due to the winger's recurrent injury problems in the past couple of months. There have been a lot of talks about the United States Men's National Team star growing disgruntled with life at Chelsea and him seeking a move away from the club due to him not getting enough opportunities under manager Thomas Tuchel to impress, and Cole has said what he thinks about the situation.

Cole Urges Chelsea To Splash The Cash

Former Chelsea defensive star Ashley Cole has pleaded with his former club to sign a top striker in the summer transfer window if they want to stand any chance of fighting for the Premier League title next season, as well as other key trophies.


Chelsea have missed the presence of a strong and combative striker to lead the Blues' attacking line and it is so evident in their inability to score enough goals that they need.

Thomas Tuchel has the likes of Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud, and Tammy Abraham to choose from as his main strikers, but none of those three frontmen has been very consistent for the club this season, raising doubts over their abilities, as well as raising suggestions that club owner Roman Abramovic would need to inject more cash into the club so they can once again head into the transfer window with a clear agenda of signing a top-rated striker.


Cole Joins Terry In Hailing Mason Mount

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is currently one of the most talked-about players within and around the club as he continues to impress his new manager Thomas Tuchel both in training and on the pitch.


The brilliant young midfielder was recalled from his loan spell from Derby Country by former manager Frank Lampard and was given more than enough time to showcase his talents as he hardly missed any minute of Premier League action under Lampard.

A lot of fans criticized Lampard for his decision to keep playing Mount ahead of Kovacic who was presumably a better option in the Blues' midfield, but Lampard turned dead ears to those thoughts and criticism as he stuck to his decision and kept playing the England international midfielder in his team.


COLE, A PROPER ROLE MODEL - CAHILL

Veteran Crystal Palace centre back Gary Cahill has talked up former England and Chelsea teammate Ashley Cole as a proper role model for young players. Gary Cahill spoke about Ashley Cole in a recent interview with the official website of Crystal Palace as he's still stunned that Ashley Cole finished his international career with over a century of caps. According to him, Ashley Cole played at a high level for at least a decade for him to amass 107 caps for the Three Lions of England.


Gary Cahill had 61 caps for his country and he had to play at a high level for several years to play those games for the Three Lions.


CHELSEA LEGENDS ENDORSE MOUNT AS SKIPPER

Chelsea legends Ashley Cole and John Terry have endorsed the idea of Mason Mount as the club's skipper after the Three Lions of England midfielder took the armband for the FA Cup fourth round last weekend. In one of the last acts of fellow Blues legend Frank Lampard as manager, he handed Mason Mount the captain's armband for the FA Cup fourth round clash between Chelsea and Luton Town at Stamford Bridge.


Ashley Cole, John Terry and Frank Lampard played together for many years at Chelsea and now both Ashley Cole and John Terry showed their support for the decision made by their ex-Chelsea teammate Lampard as regards Mason Mount.


COLE - LAMPARD SHOWING HE CAN BE A TOP MANAGER

After initially bringing in many new faces to Stamford Bridge and using them to have a great start to the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, Frank Lampard has recently seen his team struggle in terms of finding consistency to win games.


Kai Havertz's and Timo Werner's form have come under question in recent times as both players have failed to perform in the league, and only found the back of the net in their FA Cup game on Sunday after both going more than ten games without scoring.

However, despite the struggles, former Arsenal defender Ashley Cole has insisted that Frank Lampard is still doing a great job at Chelsea and will do even better later in the future. Lampard secured a fourth-place finish for Chelsea last season, his first in charge of the Blues and are still considered as title contenders this season.


PERFECT PLAYER: COLE SNUBS MESSI

Former Premier League defender Ashley Cole has snubbed Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi while building his perfect player. Lionel Messi has six Ballon d'Or titles, which is more than any other player in the history of the round leather game in addition to being regarded as the best player to ever grace the professional football field.


Ashley Cole was recently asked by media portal GOAL to build his perfect player and he left out Lionel Messi.
