The season is still a fair way off with the plethora of pre-season games here and abroad having to be contended with first but, already; the anticipation levels are growing.
With the squad having been reshuffled at Stamford Bridge with some pretty familiar names having left and with some more, quite probably, to be moved on, Chelsea supporters are hoping that the influx of signings Chelsea have made will see us mount a genuine title challenge.
Of those that are coming in, the Chelsea support have high hopes that Diego Costa can prove to be something that several in the past have failed to do, become a goal-scoring centre forward for us.
I`ve lost count of the number of strikers that have failed to reproduce the scoring form they showed before they seemed to become like rabbits in headlights at Stamford Bridge, from Robert Fleck to Fernando Torres you might say.
Today it has been announced that Costa will wear the #19 shirt as he seeks to make an instant impact in the Premier League. Is it too much to hope for that the Brazilian born Spanish international celebrates his first season in the Premier League with 19 Premier League goals?
That would be some first season would it not!
