Chelsea’s Season So Far – The Highs And Lows

Chelsea are currently enjoying a decent season under the guidance of Jose Mourinho. They sit third in the league, just four points behind leaders Arsenal, and sit top of Group E in the Champions League by three points. The Blues’ most recently outing ended with a 3-0 trouncing of local rivals West Ham, so I thought that I would analyse their good start to the season.


They have to far beaten Fulham and West Ham, but the highlight of the London results has to be their 2-0 victory away at Arsenal in the League Cup.

Their European form has also been pleasing.

Low points:

Their 2-0 loss at Newcastle hurt Mourinho and he didn’t hide that. After a sluggish display both individually and as a team up at St James’ Park they returned south with their tails between their legs.

Standout players:

Oscar is having another fine season, but for me it’s John Terry. The skipper has come back into the set up and played every minute of the club’s Premier League season, winning  48/70 of his headed duels and completed 91% of his passes.


David Luiz, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba have all failed to inspire this season and could see their places at risk in the January transfer window.

Cesar Azpilicueta and Kevin de Bruyne have also failed to make any real impact, but that is more because of lack of game time rather than performances.


I think it will be between Chelsea and Arsenal for the title, myself. Mourinho has got them firing and tightened them up at the back, while he also has a wealth of talent to choose from.

  1. Ba has barely featured and scored in his last UCL appearance so he should be in the De bruyne group, who im pretty sure has PLAYED MORE MINUTES than Ba. Labeling him as a flop is quite unfair and lacking in justifiable reasoning.

    Torres has been a playing tremendous when his is fit so excluding the beginning of the season and first game back from injury he has been world class with many game winning performances, and an inspired performance against spurs with that wrongful sending off. I was fairly certain that he would of won us the game before he was sent off.
    He was also absolutely crucial against Munich, City and Shalke.

    Cahill, Ramires, Hazard, Torres and Ivanovic have all been standout players along with Terry. Oscar only scored one more goal than Hazard and im not sure he even registered an assist yet.

    I would put todays loss as low point as WE HAD ZERO SHOTS ON GOAL, Everton loss wasnt pleasant either.
