FIFA 15 has landed! BOOM! After months of waiting, we can now finally ditch last year’s effort (or Pro Evo 2014 if you stuck by it…) and hastily get going with the new season, albeit a month or so after it actually started…
Chelsea were a decent side to take on in the last instalment, but this year Jose Mournho has made the Blues even better, which, in turn, makes them better on our consoles. Cheers, Jose! Here are FOUR reasons the Londoners could well be the ultimate go-to team on FIFA 15…

As we just mentioned, Hazard is the star on the cover of the English version alongside Lionel Messi. So, naturally, the Belgian is a pretty decent player in game form, with his 88 rating making the impish attacker the 10th best option available.
Hazard was great last year, so chance are this time that he’ll be nearly unstoppable in the right hands.
As in real life, Chelsea will have plenty of options available from the bench and in their reserves. The Blues have, arguably, the most comprehensive squad in the Premier League, with some of Mourinho’s summer additions – all brought in at a profit – having plugged gaps in their ranks.
Beyond the likes of Costa and Hazard, Chelsea have Remy and Schurrle, who would both be starters for almost any other side in Europe.
Away from the big names, Chelsea have a decent batch of youngsters. Tomas Kalas – who starred in the win at Liverpool last term – is one of many loanees away from the Bridge when the game starts, but in career mode as the years tick past these names will be brought back to filter into the first-team.
Kurt Zouma, Nathan Ake, Marco van Ginkel, Thorgan Hazard and Lucas Piazon are also starlets to look out for.
As in real life last season, the one major sticking point with Chelsea was the lack of firepower. Fernando Torres wasn’t quite the flop he so famously was on the game, but outside of career mode it was difficult to get the best from the Blues. But now with Diego Costa up top, the chances you create will surely be finished with a bit more ease. There’s also Remy and Drogba to call upon…
