Chelsea FC - Premier League Champions Aim to Defend Crown in 2015-16
Such was the dominance of Jose Mourinho's side in the Premier League in 2014-15 that few pundits were tipping against them retaining their crown for the second successive season. In goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, centre back John Terry, playmaker Cesc Fabregas and striker Diego Costa, the Stamford Bridge outfit boast a formidable spine to their starting XI, and these players have proved instrumental in recent success. Boosted by the acquisitions of Baba Rahman, Pedro Rodriguez and exciting teenager Kenedy in summer 2015, they are well equipped to fight for trophies on all fronts once again. After a domestic double last term, Blues fans are eager for glory once again.
More About Chelsea FC - West London Club Make It Big
Formed in Fulham, West London in 1905 after local businessman Gus Mears bought Stamford Bridge Athletics Ground with the express purpose of making it England's greatest football hub, it took a very long time for the Blues to live up to their founder's dreams. The club did quickly earn a reputation for attractive football and signing some of the most exciting players around, which continues to this day. When Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich bought the Stamford Bridge side in 2003, it proved a landmark moment, almost instantly elevating it to the top echelon of world football. Fuelled by Abramovich's lavish spending on the likes of Didier Drogba, Eden Hazard and Oscar, they have won the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup multiple times each, and in 2012 became the first London club ever to claim the UEFA Champions League. There is no more exhilarating time to be a Blues fan than the present.
