Chelsea have started re-laying their Stamford Bridge pitch after completing three home matches in six days.

The Premiership champions do not host a game again until 11 March with work expected to be completed before they face London rivals Tottenham.


Criticism has been levelled at the poor surface, which also needed to be relaid last season.


Barcelona, in particular, voiced their concerns about its condition prior to last week's Champions League tie.


A Chelsea spokesman told BBC sport earlier this month: "We have always had problems with the pitch.


"In the past we generally re-lay once during the season and then reseed in the summer.


"But that creates a vicious circle as it makes it harder for the pitch to bed down in the summer."





About ******* Time!
