Jose Mourinho’s much anticipated return to Stamford Bridge saw him virtually pick up from where he left off from his last spell in charge.
The 2-0 home win over Hull City acted as the definition of a comfortable victory.
With all the work done in the first 45 minutes, Mourinho’s men barely got out of first gear in the second half, and cruised towards a clean sheet and an opening weekend three points.
Mourinho is well aware there are far bigger tests lie ahead, starting this week, with Aston Villa at home before an away trip to Manchester United next Monday.
This will give the Blues the first chance to test their title credentials, whilst also giving Mourinho the chance to assess whether he needs to make any more signings in the final few days of the transfer window.
Chelsea have been relatively quiet this window by their usual standards, bringing in Andre Schurrle, Marco van Ginkel and Mark Schwarzer so far. The likes of Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne have both been recalled from loan spells, which could well prove crucial.
But if rumours are to be believed, Mourinho would have liked to have delved further into the transfer window ahead of the new season.
