This could be the chance for the Blues to win another title.
Although Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge upon returning to Chelsea in 2013 was considered a disappointment by many, the next 12 months could be quite different.
Unlike during his previous three years at Stamford Bridge between 2004 and 2207 the 2013/14 campaign ended trophyless for Mourinho and the Blues finished third in the Premier League behind champions Manchester City and Liverpool.
Yet the summer has been a busy one for the West Londoners. As a result, here are five reasons why fanatix thinks the club could well win the English title in 2014/15.
1. World-class signings
Since Roman Abramovich bought the club back in 2003 spending big on players has not been an issue, but whether they are actually worth the money is debatable.
However, this summer Mourinho has acquired four new first team stars (with youngster Mario Pasalic also signed and immediately sent out on-loan to Elche).
Of those £30m Cesc Fabregas can be defined as a genuinely world-class player who is considered by many to be among the best midfielders in world football.
Added to that the supreme talent of Diego Costa, Filipe Luis and club legend Didier Drogba and things are looking good at the Bridge.
