Before the 2014/15 Premier League season got underway, Chelsea were – even if it were through gritted teeth – everyones favourites to take the title away from Manchester City due to their superb summer transfer business.
Jose Mourinho has got his side playing some wonderfully attractive, and also efficient, football, with up until the defeat against Newcastle United, there being genuine talk that the Blues could repeat Arsene Wenger’s invincible Arsenal side of 2003/04.
In Diego Costa they’ve got one of the best strikers in world football, supported by the wonderful Cesc Fabregas and Eden Hazard with the likes of Thibaut Courtois, John Terry and Nemanja providing the defensive steel and protection.
The biggest weapon in Chelsea’s armoury, though, is the man who selects the team! Take a look below at this phenomenal stat from Jose Mourinho’s managerial career so far – a stat that doesn’t look like ending this season.
Incredible from Jose Mourinho! pic.twitter.com/a78m8DStLv
