2013/14 – Return of the Prodigal Son

Rafael Benitez was shown the door at the end of the 2012/13 season and saw the subsequent arrival of Jose Mourinho back as the boss. It was under Mourinho that Chelsea went back to the top of English Football after half a century when he guided them to their second ever domestic league title in 2004/05 in his first season with them and repeated the feat again in 2005/06.

More of the same was expected from the Chelsea and it’s safe to say that he did exactly what was expected the club underwent a major revamp as many of their Premier players including the likes of Juan Mata, Kevin De Bryune, Mikel Essien and Yossi Benayoun were shown the door and saw the arrival of players including Nemanja Matic, Kurt Zouma and Andre Schurrle to name a few.

Though it wasn’t a repeat of this first season at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho guided to another 3rd place finishing just 4 points behind eventual champions Manchester City. Chelsea suffered early exits from the League and FA Cups but had a good campaign in the Champions League reaching the semifinals before getting knocked out by eventual runners-up Atletico Madrid.

Another revamp meant that a whole host of players including club Legends Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole were shown the door.
