About 18 months ago some were discussing and contemplating how Jose Mourinho's return to the Stamford Bridge could end up in tatters and remorse for Chelsea, the man, and the fans.

Sales of favourites Juan Mata and David Luiz caused a stir. Letting go of legends Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard to ensure the proper squad balance led to disbelief.
