Having just inflicted two 1-0 victories upon a Thailand all-star team and Sydney FC in a duo of end-of-season friendlies, on the face of it, could these results have been any more Chelsea-like?
The footballing fraternity has grown so used to the Blues being able to comfortably dispatch opponents in a seemingly inevitable fashion after going 1-0 up in a game and it is these standards that have been set by the perfectionist himself, Jose Mourinho.
But to improve on perfection will be the aim for the Portuguese tactician this summer who will want the Blues to progress further in the Champions League next term after being eliminated by Paris Saint-Germain and the familiar shaggy-haired guy by the name of David Luiz.
As for the Premier League, there is absolutely no reason why Chelsea can’t go the distance again next term with the Blues having remarkably only lost three fixtures in the entire 2014/15 campaign.
With Stamford Bridge ever the fortress and Chelsea the experts in achieving results on the road, the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United will have to go some next season to topple the Blues machine.
But what of the playing squad at Mourinho’s disposal?
Chelsea rarely let a transfer window pass without some major business being completed but first, we have identified five players who the Blues simply have to sell this summer for an entire plethora of reasons.
