Much was made of Jose Mourinho's comments that Chelsea were a "little horse" last season and that this coming season we WOULD be stronger, title challengers. You only have to look at Chelsea now to see he was 100% right. Chelsea in my opinion, are worthy title favourites for the coming season!

Diego Costa made an impressive debut for Chelsea yesterday and scored a great goal to level things up. His movement off the ball was good and there seems to be an immediate understanding with Cesc Fabregas which excites me ahead of the new season.
Take a look at the video below of all of Costa's involvement in the game.
