In reality, Chelsea’s point against London rivals Tottenham on Sunday didn’t really get the Blues anywhere fast with the team still down in 14th place.
That said, Jose Mourinho claimed it was the Blues’ best performance of the season so far and in the last few weeks, we’ve seen Chelsea at least manage to shake the losing habit with victories, albeit expected, against both Norwich City at home and Maccabi Tel Aviv away.
Mourinho has already alluded to the fact that he won’t ask Roman Abramovich for any new signings in the January transfer window with the Portuguese intent on turning around the club’s fortunes with the current crop he already has at his disposal.
While that may well prove the case for the team from West London, this won’t stop the transfer rumours from rearing their head and according to The Guardian, Chelsea are intent on beating Manchester United to the summer signing of Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller.
While Muller could of course spend his entire career with the Bavarian giants while becoming even more of a club legend than he already is, we’ve seen the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger recently test himself elsewhere and everybody in the tavern is sure Muller could do a fine job for whichever new club he could potentially join.
But today we’re romanticising over the thought of Muller spearheading the Blues’ attack while Diego Costa continues to spit his dummy out over his terrible season so far.
That’s why we’ve metaphorically included Muller in our best Blues XI gallery here!
