The Blues boss took his time to interrogate his team after an abysmal second-half display saw them drop out of the top four, reports.

Chelsea are three points worse off than they were this time last season and slipped below Arsenal in the table on goal difference - Charlie Daniels' 95th-minute header putting the cherry on that particular cake.

NBA’s Protest Over Onnoghen Is A Mockery Of Legal Profession - NBA

Femi Falana, human rights lawyer, says the directive of the leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) for lawyers to boycott courts for two days in protest against the suspension of Walter Onnoghen as chief justice of Nigeria (CJN) is a mockery of the legal profession. NBA had on Monday announced this decision at its emergency national executive committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja. Lawyers were, however, divided over this directive, and while proceedings went on in some courts, others were empty. But speaking on Thursday at an interactive session organised by Citizen Forum in Lagos, Falana said the body of lawyers gave a wrong impression. “So much for the law, we also must proceed to challenge the legal profession. I am talking of the National Judicial Council (NJC) and the Nigerian Bar Association, for pretending that there was no problem,” he said. “Nigerians have to be very mindful of this dangerous precedent, dangerous phenomenon whereby people are charged with very grave off…
