Since the return of the Special One, there has been a feel good factor around Stamford Bridge. As their all-time favourite and best manager Jose Mourinho has returned to the Chelsea dug out for a second spell. But how has their season gone so far?
When Mourinho was announced as the new Chelsea manager, many people believed that the Blues would continue their dominance from Mourinho's first spell. Currently, they sit in third place behind Arsenal and Manchester City.
Chelsea haven't won the Premier League title since 2009/10 when Mourinho's Real Madrid successor Carlo Ancelotti was in charge. After they won the league in Mourinho's first season in his first spell, Chelsea will no doubt want history to repeat itself this year.
The strikers at Chelsea; Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o haven't been at the front of Chelsea's goal scoring charts. Scoring seven goals between them. Chelsea's top scorer is currently Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard with eight league goals.
During the summer transfer window, Chelsea invested heavily and signed a number of players; Willian, Samuel Eto'o, Mark Schwarzer, Marco van Ginkel, Andre Schurrle and Christian Atsu.
A big talking point during Chelsea's first half of the season has to be Juan Mata. Usually a regular starter for Chelsea, the Spaniard found himself out of first-team favour at the start of Mourinho's second tenure at Chelsea. However, in recent weeks, Mata has played more often.
With the Special One at the helm, anything is possible for Chelsea this season. What do you think? Can Chelsea win the league? Or will another club pip them to the title that has eluded them for a few seasons now?
