And now the Daniel Sturridge mystery from earlier becomes clearer. Originally, it was reported that the striker was not in the Chelsea squad to face Atletico Madrid (we're 1-0 down thanks to a Radamel Falcao goal at the time of writing, by the way), and then his name appeared on the bench. Magic! Here's what happened.

So, for those of you who absolutely hated the idea of Sturridge going out on loan -- and I really don't blame you -- this is very good news indeed. No Sturridge for you, Liverpool! What impact this has on the possible signing of Loic Remy, whom Chelsea have been connected with all day, is entirely unclear. But, yeah, the big news is Sturridge looks like he's staying.
