Chelsea finished the season without a trophy under the returning manager Jose Mourinho and will look to come back stronger next year.
Blues blew the premier league crown by dropping points against teams in the bottom half of the table and just did not have the firepower to beat a high flying Atletico Madrid in the Champions League semi finals.
The London side have lacked a top quality striker in their lineup, someone they will surely sign in the upcoming transfer window but their has been one main improvement under Jose Mourinho.
Chelsea have been rock solid at the back for majority of the season and for the first time since 2008-2009 season, Blues have conceded under 30 goals in their league campaign.
Here are the Stats provided below.
- 2009-2010 (32 Goals)
- 2010-2011 (33 Goals)
- 2011-2012 (46 Goals)
- 2012-2013 (39 Goals)
- 2013-2014 (27 Goals)
Their back line is all set for next season with John Terry extending his stay. Moreover, talented Kurt Zouma is likely to return to further reinforce the defensive department for next season.
Jose Mourinho now has to focus on the attacking department. With so many quality attacking midfielders at disposal, Chelsea lack that prolfic goalscorer upfront who could take advantage of the chances their playmakers create.
Blues will surely be strong contenders for every title next season once they complete that set.

Let’s give Jose a total support, ofcourse critics are also waiting on the corridors but he’s much en deserves much respect. Meanwhile, i’d prefer that we also look for a creative number 10 en powerful, clinical no. 9.
