Prior to the big Premier League kick-off and their Saturday evening fixture against Swansea City last week, Chelsea boasted the best opening weekend record in the Premier League so Blues fans would’ve looked upon the 2-2 draw with some disappointment.
Pegged back twice by the Swans while Thibaut Courtois saw red and Eva Carneiro received a public dressing down by Jose Mourinho, it’s fair to say that it could’ve gone a whole lot better for the Blues.
Previously beaten 1-0 by Arsenal in the Community Shield, Chelsea fans obviously want their side to bounce back with a win sooner rather than later to avoid widespread panic ensuing.
The next piece of business the club conclude in the transfer market seems to be a move for FC Augsburg’s Baba Rahman with the Ghanaian international set to arrive at Stamford Bridge as a direct replacement for the outgoing Filipe Luis after just one season in West London.
Despite Rahman’s impending arrival, some Chelsea fans would rather the club didn’t stop there and brought extra firepower into Stamford Bridge with Diego Costa injury prone and Radamel Falcao and Loic Remy not representing dream options behind the Spanish international.
Only time will tell whether Jose Mourinho swoops to add more playing staff to his ranks this summer but in the meantime, we’ve devised an entire eleven made up of transfer targets linked with a Blues switch this transfer window.
