Since Jose Mourinho took over the hot seat back at Chelsea a little over a year ago, they have managed to rebuild, and form what many would feel is a deadly squad that most teams in the Premier League would be fearful of.
With emerging players like Thibaut Courtois, Kurt Zouma, Oscar, and Cesar Azpilicueta, Mourinho has wasted no time at all in looking to build for the future. As well as the newer faces around Stamford Bridge there seems to be a good blend with Peter Cech, John Terry and Didier Drogba now prime examples.
Of course, Chelsea may not have been where they are now without one of the signings of the summer for the Premier League without a doubt; Diego Costa. He has 10 goals already to his name in only nine appearances for his club in the league so far, that’s not to mention the ferocity he gives the team.
He seems to fit the role of the antagonist quite well, and sometimes that is a good quality to have in a player. Costa, for me, has to be the most prolific striker in front of goal in the Premier League this season, particularly when it's considered that an injury that has kept him out for weeks.
Had he not got injured I’m sure we would have seen a lot more from him in terms of goals; he is without a doubt one of the most fundamental players in Mourinho's Chelsea side this season and if he manages to keep himself fit, healthy and in top form then there is no telling what this man could do. Could he be the next Luis Suarez?

Wining the league
If their form stays consistent, Chelsea could not only win the league but go the entire season unbeaten – whether that is possible is surely the question on plenty of minds. That’s not to mention the other competitions that they have up for grabs, i.e. the Champions League, the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup.
Chelsea currently stand four points clear of Southampton at the top of the Premier League, with a goal difference of 17 (one behind Southampton). As well as this they also stand top of their respective Champions League group table.
With both the FA and Capital One Cup still up for grabs, could it be possible we see them lift all four come the end of the season?
