Following a comfortable 4-2 victory over Swansea, Chelsea have now won all four of their games of this new season.
The win, like those preceding it, was largely due to the new signings made this summer. Diego Costa has been grabbing the headlines due to a remarkable start and looks every inch a striker who will succeed in the Premier League. He is a finisher as good as any other and is willing to be physical, a powerful
combination for a striker playing in England.
In a much more understated manner, Cesc Fabregas has been near equally influential. The much-vaunted midfielder - who was top of Manchester United's wish list at one point - has been reminding everyone of the world class player he is.
His accurate passing will be the key to unlocking defences to allow Costa in, with the most recent game being a prime example. Fabregas will get countless assists this year and will be a big reason why Chelsea will be the major title contender.
Throw into the mix the inclusion of Loic Remy and Didier Drogba into the squad and there are signs that Chelsea now actually possess depth in their striking options, rather than relying on their former £ 50 million flop Fernando Torres.
During the past few seasons, Chelsea have had a dependable goalkeeper at the back in Petr Cech, but now his exclusion has actually helped improve the team.
Thibaout Courtois is arguably the most talented 'keeper in the world at present - with the exception of the incomparable Manuel Neuer - and proved his worth last year for Atletico Madrid and then for Belgium at the World Cup.
At the tender age of 23 and in the knowledge that goalkeepers reach their peak much later on, Chelsea have a cracking player for their future as well as today.
The main opposition to Chelsea's bid for the title will, of course, be Manchester City. With an extraordinary wealth of players, City have depth and talent across the board. But having already dropped easy points, signs are they could be lacking in ruthlessness, a weakness Mourinho will not allow in his Chelsea side.
There are no doubt other good teams, but losing Luis Suarez inevitably takes Liverpool out of the equation this year unless Mario Balotelli shocks us as all and consistently scores goals.
Arsenal, as ever, will lose momentum at some stage and drop too many valuable points. That only leaves Manchester United out of the main dominant forces, but this year will be too soon for a team that rebuilt itself so drastically during the summer transfer window.
All of which leads me to believe that it will be Chelsea who will lift the trophy come the end of the season. They were re-energised by Mourinho last year and I feel they will improve this season and reach their goal of claiming the title once more.
