Chelsea had an astounding season and were rightly crowned champions of the England. With a majority of the Chelsea players featuring in the PFA team of the year, some of the players had a mediocre season and will look to raise the bar for the coming season.
Although a part of the PFA TOTY, the English centre-back had a season with plenty of highs and lows. He formed a great partnership at the back with John Terry, who had an amazing season. However, sometimes he lacked sheen at the back and made many unforced errors. In some matches, he did have some really good cautious tackles but some of his tackles were cynical, forcing Mourinho to bench him for Kurt Zouma in a couple of matches. Cahill is already 29 years old, and these are his final few years as a mainstream defender in which he needs to improve his already good looking career.
Juan Cuadrado was one of the hottest properties post World Cup and was linked with a series of top flight clubs like Manchester City, Barcelona and Bayern Munich. However, his summer move was blocked by Fiorentina. Come January and Cuadrado made a move to Chelsea with Mohammed Salah going the other way out on loan. Personally being a fan of Cuadrado I expected a lot and was eager to see him perform well in the Chelsea jersey. However, he has tanked and is rated in the pecking order below Willian. But Mourinho has always claimed that Cuadrado was a haptic signing and a player for the following season. Well, let’s hope that the Colombian bounces back to form and gives Willian a run for his money.
The Brazilian winger has always created a divided opinion amongst the minds of Chelsea fans. Some feel that Willian has been a boring winger who plays more of like a wing back, and some feel he acts an anchor to the full back position. Willian has been a bit boring the last season as he has scored just four goals and assisted five. With Hazard performing on the left, hopes on Willian have increased four folds, and we expect he scores to his maximum ability the next time around.
The English prodigy has been the talking point of last season for the Blues and Mourinho has been an admirer of RLC. He knows that RLC will grow into a major first team footballer and will mark the beginning of already good looking youth academy. However, he lacks maturity and well that’s fine for a nineteen-year-old. His performance against Sydney FC forced Mourinho to publically criticise him. If he wants to compete for first team football he needs to up his game.
Surprise, surprise! A certain eyebrow raiser on why I chose Diego Costa. Costa had a phenomenal start to the season, but the latter half of the season was plagued with injuries. We just hope that he stays void of any more injuries next season and carry the form in which he left last season. Another major problem that Costa faced was European football. The Brazilian-born Spanish forward struggled to find the back of the net and also could assist with just one goal. Another improvement Mourinho would like to see in Costa is his discipline. Costa has racked ten yellow cards in all competitions this season and also he faced a ban for stamping Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel. It’s obvious that Costa is good but why settle for good when we can get excellent out of him?
