Cole, Eto’o and Torres among the first team stars to be axed.
After a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend Chelsea are off the pace in the Premier League title race and Jose Mourinho is frustrated.
With Liverpool winning convincingly 4-0 against Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday it means the Reds have jumped to the top of the league at this crucial stage.
Mourinho was clearly not happy after the final whistle in south London and ruled his side out of winning a fourth Premier League title this term – yet the Portuguese star has said they are outsiders all season.
Many of the current first team are not considered to be good enough for a Blues side looking to challenge on all fronts and the next transfer window could be a busy one in west London.
The 51-year-old wants to vastly improve the squad in the summer and as such plans to axe no fewer than 14 current Blues players.
Here are those names, courtesy of reports from the London Evening Standard.
