CHELSEA ARE UNDERSTOOD to have taken drastic measures as they bid to address their poor early season form.

The Telegraph reports that all banter has been banned by Jose Mourinho and his players following their significant loss of form of late.

Last season’s champions were convincingly beaten 3-1 by Everton on Saturday, and are currently just one place above the relegation zone on four points as a result.

And the club now want Stamford Bridge to be a joke-free zone as they prepare for vital upcoming clashes against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League on Wednesday as well as Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday.

Chelsea have also denied claims made by talkSPORT‘s Stan Collymore that there has been a bust-up between John Terry and Diego Costa, describing this speculation as “utter nonsense”.
