Jose Mourinho's homecoming, which promised an instantaneous return to the glory days of his first tenure, has well and truly been spoiled.
Though Chelsea haven't looked a weak side so far this term, and most certainly aren't being asked as many questions as David Moyes' Manchester United, it's a fair assessment to say that the results have flopped massively in the expectation department.

With a bulging squad that's proving to be more hinderance than help, and a number of decisions needed to be made concerning certain individuals and their immediate futures, we take a look at five changes Jose Mourinho needs to make both before and during the January transfer window.
