Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea have started this season with a ‘˜bang’ in every competition albeit the League Cup. The attack, defence and the midfield have all been shored up with a quality attack that can match the Galaticos of Real Madrid or the warriors of Barcelona.
Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea have started this season with a ‘bang’ in every competition albeit the League Cup. The attack, defence and the midfield have all been shored up with a quality attack that can match the Galaticos of Real Madrid or the warriors of Barcelona.
Spanish striker Diego Costa has already signalled his arrival in the EPL with 7 goals in as many as 4 games that has left club legend, Didier Drogba on the substitute bench. Former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard have been tormenting the opposition defences with slick passing and intricate play.
Even though the Blues’ dropped points against Manchester City last weekend, they are still pundits’ favourites to clinch titles this season. The below 5 reasons will tell why this team from Stamford Bridge are destined for glories:
Depth in squad
First and foremost, Chelsea are the ones that have a depth in attack, midfield and defence as well. Last year, it was Manchester City who was the dominating force but this season, Chelsea has taken one step ahead. Moreover, the Blues could be one of the ‘dark horses’ as well in the UEFA Champions League with the quality that they possess in the squad.
A clinical striker in Diego Costa
Last season, in the La Liga, Atletico Madrid became champions because of one man only – Diego Costa. The Brazilian-born Spain striker moved to Chelsea in a mega money move in the summer transfer market and is already raking up the goals for fun in the EPL. Last season, Mourinho missed a clinical striker upfront and thus, cost them the title chance. But this year, a Premiership title might just be one of the many trophies lined up at the Bridge.
Cesc Fabregas is a Blue!
No Arsenal fan would have dreamt to see that coming but alas it happened as Cesc Fabregas rolled up a Chelsea jersey this season and it seems, the Spain midfielder likes the new role. With Jose Mourinho at the helm, Fabregas is now the new ‘number 10’ at the hub of their formation and his partnership with Diego Costa is just tarrying oppositions away!
Jose Mourinho’s unfinished business
After leaving Chelsea in 2008, Jose Mourinho won many titles in Spain and Italy. That included a Champions League medal and League and Spanish Leagues as well. But Mourinho has always dreamt of winning the UCL with the Chelsea club and as far as history goes, the 51-year old could achieve the unthinkable as well!
The Return of the ‘Drog’
Chelsea’s iconic son, Didier Drogba returned to the club after leaving them in 2012. That said, the Ivorian striker may be seen as an experienced head and guide the young guns rather than a regular starter on the field. Drogba’s availability could boost the team’s chances to win some silverware this season which could herald a new era at Stamford Bridge.
With so many qualities in the team, Chelsea could be amongst the top sides in Europe in the Champions League competition.
