THE BIGGER PICTURE: Luis Enrique is considered one of two top candidates to become the permanent replacement for recently sacked Graham Potter at Stamford Bridge, along with Julian Nagelsmann. His experience with Barcelona and the Spanish national team, plus his desire to coach in England, have made him a natural option for the Blues.
WHAT NEXT FOR CHELSEA? The club are close to sensationally appointing former player and manager Frank Lampard on an interim basis until the end of the season. The ex-midfielder could even be in the dugout for the game against Wolves on Saturday.
