Like everyone else, Guardian journalist Amy Lawrence believes Chelsea are aiming to finish top this coming season.
There will be no discussions of being a “little horse” from Jose Mourinho, Chelsea have spent big and bought sensibly.
The Blues, despite finishing third last season, really do look like the team to beat.
Who will play in goal for Chelsea, Petr Cech or Thibaut Courtois, is fascinating.
And, Lawrence points out how important Nemanja Matic is to Chelsea – “like a new signing.”
