The 2021-22 Premier League season has begun, as it always does. It will be quite difficult. Manchester City is the current Premier League champion, but retaining the championship will be difficult. Chelsea and Manchester United, for example, haven't won the league in a long time and would be desperate to do so in the 2021-22 season. Let us not forget that there is a Liverpool team that is also looking for success. Chelsea has spent the last three seasons battling for a place in the top four, and will be looking to break through this season. Here are five reasons why Chelsea has a chance to win the Premier League in 2021-22, ending their four-year drought.
1. Tactical Flexibility
Chelsea's unsaid characteristic is their adaptability to any sort of game. Blues have always thrived under a variety of managers, including Antonio Conte, Maurizio Sarri, Jose Mourinho, and now Tuchel. The club has played in a variety of systems and has always been able to identify players who can play in a variety of positions. These players have excelled in a variety of system. As a result, the squad is now well-versed in a variety of strategies and plays. Chelsea's versatility and experience would allow them to tweak and play under different systems during games, increasing their longevity.
2. Depth of the squad
Chelsea has perhaps the best team in the Premier League right now. From goalkeepers to forwards, the team has strong alternatives all across the field. The Blues paid 115 million euros for Romelu Lukaku, making him one of the most expensive players in the league, and also bought Saul Niguez on loan to bolster their attack. N'Golo Kante was substituted for Mason Mount in the game against Spurs, demonstrating their squad depth. The industrious Frenchman transformed the game's dynamism, injecting extra energy into Chelsea's midfield as they won 3-0 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. This can only be ascribed to Chelsea's depth at the back end. Their depth will help them compete for the Premier League crown against their opponents.
3. Lukaku's arrival gives the attack a new dimension.
The 28-year-old striker is the club's most expensive player after leaving permanently in 2014. Lukaku, who played for Everton and Manchester United, is ranked 20th all-time in Premier League goalscoring. Lukaku is a powerful and lethal striker, something Chelsea has lacked since Diego Costa's departure in 2017. He's also a Premier League veteran who's at the top of his game. The Belgian will be hoping to take advantage of Chelsea's colossal number of chances. Other players like Werner, Havertz, and Ziyech will benefit from his presence. Lukaku guided Inter to the Serie A title in 2020-21, and he will seek to do the same with Chelsea in the Premier League in 2021-22.
4. Tuchel has reignited Chelsea's desire for victory.
Thomas Tuchel has believed that the Chelsea squad is ready to fight for trophies since his first interview as manager. This represents a significant shift in mindset, as his predecessor, Frank Lampard, was known for downplaying the team's capacity to compete for titles. Tuchel's promise was fulfilled when he won the Champions League. The team appears to be adopting the German mentality as well. The players no longer regard themselves as underdogs, and they go into every game determined to win. The strategist has succeeded in raising the team's ambitions to new heights. The players' confidence in winning the Premier League has grown as a result of their Champions League victory. Chelsea has been one of the better teams in the league since Tuchel took over. He has a strong record against top teams, having defeated Pep Guardiola three times in the span of two months. Although Manchester City defeated them at stamford bridge this weekend. However, Tuchel will anticipate even better performances from his team now. Tuchel's first few months at Chelsea have shown that he has reignited Chelsea's desire for victory.
5. Attacking Option and Team Spirit
After their tremendous triumph in the UEFA Champions League, Chelsea players will be looking to win the English Premier League this season. This season, Chelsea has had ten different goal scorers. Romelu Lukaku, obviously, leads the way with three goals, but danger lurks in every scenario. A Chelsea corner appears to be more likely to result in a counter-attack, as we saw against Tottenham and Liverpool.
