With the 2014-2015 Premier League season set to commence imminently, Chelsea look well prepared to win their first title since 2010.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich decided to part way with tradition by making Jose Mourinho the only manager to have been left in charge after not winning any silverware the previous season.
The summer was quite active for the Blues, as they captured Fabregas, Filipe Luis, Costa and even brought back Drogba which makes them a fearsome team for the next season. They have also recalled world class goalkeeper Courtois from his three-year loan spell at Atletico Madrid, to help them challenge for the title.
Chelsea are favorites for the title
Last year Chelsea finished 3rd behind Manchester City and Liverpool, however the impressive squad that they now have at their disposal and their talented manager makes them serious title contenders this time around. This has also been reflected in the odds mobile betting firms are giving them.
Bet365 has assigned Chelsea the best chances out of all the 20 teams with odds of 2.87 (15/8) to win the Barclays Premier League. Considering that manager Jose Mourinho was right on previous occasions when he said he needs two years to win major silverware with a new team, it appears this will be Chelsea’s comeback season.
