Former England and Aston Villa manager Graham Taylor feels now is the time to move on Chelsea's veterans.

Taylor wrote in the Daily Express: "Chelsea should consider them when they look at the roles of John Terry, Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole, Michael Essien and Didier Drogba.

"All could rightly argue they could do a good job for at least another year. But the trick is to move players on before they are finished, not wait for them to reach the end.

"Time waits for no man."
