Lifestyles of the rich and the famous, as three Chelsea players made the tabloids for non-football reasons. Diego Costa, Ramires, and Kenedy were apparently out past 3am Wednesday night, partying it up with (or at least in the same location as) some boxer named James DeGale. The Mail assures that DeGale is a "boxing star". Whoever he is.

I think the last time we had a similar incident was when Ashley Cole went to the Arsenal Christmas bash back in 2013. We never heard from him again, though by that time he was also second-choice to César Azpilicueta and his days at Stamford Bridge were clearly numbered.
Then again, some might say Diego Costa's days at Stamford Bridge are numbered, too. Not the best timing then, from the striker. Combined with his Ibiza antics earlier this season, Mourinho's got plenty of non-football reasons to go along with Costa's poor form and bib-gate to really put the player's future at Chelsea in question.
The other two probably won't raise so many eyebrows. Ramires just got a new deal — he's blown all of it on that hideous blueish hoodie-jacket-thing — and he's been a loyal servant for many years now. Kenedy's just a baby.
But do we even care? Athletes going out to party; stop the presses! Sure, it's not necessarily a good look to be stumbling out of a club less than 72 hours before a match, but apparently Mourinho's "curfew" is 48 hours, so they should be good. Plus, I'm sure they were drinking just water all night. Gotta stay hydrated!
