Premier League Top 7 predictions - Chelsea

Had it not been for two or three silly results last season, the defeats to Sunderland and Crystal Palace in particular, Chelsea would and should have won the League.

Jose Mourinho spent the entire season playing down Chelsea’s chances, and making it clear that this was not yet his team, and that there was much work to be done. Nonetheless, they came mightily close, and will be even better this time around with Mourinho now having assembled a squad that he can call his own.

Mourinho has made some astute and interesting signings this summer. Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, David Luiz and Demba Ba have moved on, but the arrivals of Felipe Luis, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas will improve the side no end.

Return of The Drog

Didier Drogba has also returned, and although he won’t be able to produce the same magic of old, he is still good enough to make an impact on occasion when called upon.

Eden Hazard will again be expected to provide the flair and magic in midfield, and will have plenty of assistance from the likes of Oscar, Willian and World Cup winner Andre Schurrle, who looks set to be an even more potent super-sub than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was at Manchester United in his day.

Ideal duo

A midfield pairing of Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic is a mouth watering prospect, and a perfect blend of brain and brawn.

John Terry and Gary Cahill will continue to be a formidable pairing in defence, and the signing of Felipe Luis will allow Cesar Azpilicueta, who was outstanding as a left-back last season, to revert to his favoured right-back position.

All in all, Mourinho’s man management and tactical nous, coupled with the key signings he has made, will see Chelsea finish top of the pile once all is said and done next May.

Prediction: 1st
