The return of Jose Mourinho to Chelsea has been met with optimism by many Blues fans, despite the team’s current tenth-place position in the Premier League. The Portuguese manager is renowned for his ability to turn a club’s fortunes around, and with over £300 million invested in transfers, the potential is there for a successful season.

Under Mourinho’s guidance, Chelsea could line up in a 4-3-3 formation, with the focus on attacking football. The Portuguese manager could also look to replace current goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga with a more reliable option, potentially Jordan Pickford from Everton.
At the back, the Blues could deploy a back four of Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Thiago Silva, and Ben Chilwell. The experience of Thiago could provide a solid foundation for the team, while the younger Fofana and James would offer pace and athleticism going forward.
In midfield, the Blues could field an experienced trio of Enzo Fernandez, N’Golo Kante, and Mateo Kovacic, providing a strong foundation for the attack. Enzo Fernandez and Kante are both experienced and can provide a defensive shield in front of the defence, while Kovacic could provide creativity in midfield.
The attack could be spearheaded by the trio of Mykhaylo Mudryk, Joao Felix, and Mason Mount. Mount and Mudryk are both creative players and could provide a spark of creativity going forward, while Joao Felix's pace and finishing ability could be a major asset for the team.
Overall, there is potential for Chelsea to become a major force again under Mourinho’s guidance. With the right players in place, they could be a major contender for a top-four finish and a return to the Champions League.
