Despite all the doom and gloom from those so-called Chelsea fans around the world, looking at our squad now heading into the first half of the season with the new signings that we HAVE made, I am pleased that we have added quality this summer.



Last season it's fair to say that once Antonio Conte settled on his 3-4-3 formation the team was pretty much a settled side with only a couple of positions being rotated (Pedro/Willian and Matic/Fabregas) so it's important to look at those that first eleven for the majority of last season compared to our possible first team this season:


Now, let's also focus on the players that are not named in that starting eleven put forward by Goal.
