We have never seen Chelsea fans so low here in the Football Transfer Tavern but after the shock of seeing former club hero Frank Lampard score the equalising goal for Manchester City yesterday, we cannot really blame them.
The Blue fans are torn between their love for Super Frank and the fact that he now plays for the enemy and despite our landlord’s promise of free drinks, free burgers and even a poker night, we cannot seem to rouse them from their depression.

We do not expect Jose Mourinho to enjoy a free spending transfer window but the links with Paul Pogba do not seem to be going away and there is certainly room for him and a couple of other additions in the Blues squad – should they axe a couple of their current players that is.
With that in mind, here is a look at five players Jose Mourinho could axe this January.
