Its been a premiership trophy drought for Chelsea in the last five years and at a point in time it seemed certain they needed a voodoo specialist to perform such Magic.
Chelsea have today been crowned premier league champions after beating crystal palace by a lone goal from an Eden Hazard penalty. He was caught between two defenders in the penalty box and that seems to be a good decision by the referee.
It’s true the blues have been an unstoppable force with just two losses throughout the season so far with 11 wins four draws in their last 14 games meaning domestically they have had the balance but when it comes to the European front the answer will be NO, which means Mourinho would have to bolster his squad this summer if he wants to compete for the champions league trophy. Their round 16 exit to Paris Saint-Germain this year was a manifestation to why the squad isn’t still ready to fight for the Holy Grail just because they lacked the cutting edge
Hazard has been an outstanding and amazing world class talent no wonder he has just been crowned the PFA player of the year but Oscar and Willian aren’t there yet, meaning a world class Attacking midfielder or winger in the person of Gareth bale is urgently needed in this squad to support hazard. The Chelsea attacking line has gone dead since the injury to Diego Costa. Remy is a standard player whereas Drogba is gone and must retire and join the coaching staff next season .this clearly states Costa needs a competitor.
Nemanja Matic has arguably been the best defensive midfielder this season as the team has always crawled in his absence on many occasions. This means another defensive midfielder is needed in Matic’s absence .john Terry has been the rock of Chelsea’s defence, One I would describe as the best defender the premiership has ever had, playing one of his best seasons. Despite signing a one year extension recently, let’s not forget he is 34years old meaning the clock is ticking and a guard must be taken earlier enough for a smooth transition .i believe by now the Russian oligarch must have started counting his check books to break the bank this summer .
Jose Mourinho has always been the thoughtful manager in the transfer business .the transfer of Fabregas who has the most assist in the premiership, the inclusion of Diego costa from Atletico Madrid with 19 goals so far this season is also a mark of a good purchase. Not forgetting the robust Matic .This is why roman will need to splash the cash in bolstering his Chelsea team this summer to fight for the Holy Grail next season.
