Chelsea head into the Premier League weekend knowing that win over Liverpool at Anfield will effectively rule out another team that was billed as a possible title contender at the start of the season.
The Blues have made a flying start to the season, having won eight and drawn two of their opening ten Premier League matches.
Summer signings Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas have made a huge difference, whilst Loic Remy, Didier Drogba and Felipe Luis have also made impressive starts.
It could be argued that Mourinho has got his transfer business spot on since his return to England, with Nemanja Matic recruited last January looking every inch a top class defensive midfielder.
But despite the obvious strength in depth at Mourinho’s disposal, reports suggest he will look to recruit further when the January transfer window opens.
As is often the way with Chelsea, every top player in Europe has been linked at one time or another. Here, we have gone through the rumours and identified five transfers we simply can’t see happening this winter.
