With Jose Mourinho back in the Chelsea hotseat, the intensity of things surrounding Stamford Bridge will have moved up a notch.
Everyone will be desperate to impress the self-entitled Special One upon his return, and be a part of what many expect to be a glorious few years for the Stamford Bridge club, if his last spell in charge is anything to go by.
Mourinho has arrived tasked with building a new era at the club. The likes of Didier Drogba have already moved on, whilst John Terry, Frank Lampard and Petr Cech are all heading towards the twilight of their Chelsea careers.
Therefore Mourinho will be tasked with bringing through young talent, and building another exciting team of homegrown stars.
It will be no easy task to follow what he has done before, but pre-season will be a good place to start.
Here we have identified five youngsters that we feel will be given a chance to shine by the special one next season.
