Many pundits are tipping our Chelsea to win Premier League this season.
Last season they made the same prediction, but we ended up in third place. Manchester City won it because of squad depth during the last ten matches they had immediate replacements for every position within the squad like Dzeko, Milner, Clichy/Kolarov, J.garcia etc. plus they were not obstructed by a Champions League semi-final.
We all know that we had no proper scorer last season to win the League or UCL during that crucial time of this season, even-though Manchester City has improved even more with quality signings like Sagna, Fernando and Caballero still they could suffer due to big FFP problems to be faced.
For our Chelsea, this time our management team did not waste any time in getting the players we needed. We got Drogba, Fabregas, D.Costa, Luis and Courtois back from loan, we have perfect squad. We need to sell flops like Mikel and Torres both were given enough time and did not perform ever.
We have a bunch of young talents fighting for first team place while Mikel and Torres get paid for nothing. We should sell them and we don`t have to replace Torres by one more signing because we have Lukaku.
But we need to replace Mikel with another defensive midfielder, that replacement should pass the ball forward not to the defenders or goalkeeper. No matter whether it is Manchester United or Manchester City or Liverpool or whoever is challenging us. If we have that strong squad, we can fight for every title and we can confidently say 'WE WILL BE THE CHAMPIONS THIS SEASON'
