Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has plans for a major squad clearout. The Daily Mail says Mourinho was left seething by the manner of their Capital One Cup exit to Sunderland.

Unless certain attitudes change and performances improve over the next few games, he is willing to begin re-shaping his squad and will look at January sales.

Obvious candidates such as Kevin de Bruyne have already expressed a desire to leave while Demba Ba has pleaded for more game time and may get his wish... elsewhere.

Yet there are understood to be few exempt from Mourinho's thinking as he grows frustrated with the response to his second tenure in charge at Stamford Bridge.
