Chelsea will win the treble this season.

2015-03-02 19:28

  The Capital One Cup, Barclays Premier League and the Champions League will be the three trophies Chelsea FC will manage to lift this season. Not forgetting the 40 Million Pound shirt deal with Yokohama Tire Company. With one in the bag already, a five point lead in the premier league with a game in hand and with an away goal from Paris in the last 16 of the Champions League it is easy to see that this treble is very realistic. Jose Mourinho does it once again. He created an almost perfect team. I say almost perfect because I still feel that they are missing one more striker, with Drogba retiring soon and Remy as a rotational squad player there is place for one more prominent young striker to learn from Drogba and Diego Costa. Chelsea FC are looking at 21 year old who is currently breaking nets in the Serie A for Inter Milan having scored 14 goals this season already and sitting joint top scorer next to Juventus’s Tevez. Nevertheless looking at the starting 11 at Chelsea FC at this very moment it is hard to find weakness especially when you have two phenomenal goalkeepers in Courtois and Cech, defenders who don’t just do justice to their positional titles but who also score between 5-10 goals a season and midfielders like Hazard, Oscar and Willian. Matic who does the Makelele role better than Makelele himself and Cesc Fabregas who is the number one assist player in the EPL with double the assist of his competition. Finally we have Diego Costa who could be the next Drogba for the club. Chelsea has that game in hand over Manchester City and with just fewer than 12 games to go we can safely say that it is Chelsea’s title to lose. Chelsea plays West Ham on Wednesday night with the Hammers going through a tough run at the moment. However Chelsea’s biggest test for the treble will be in the Champions League with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich still in the running. Mourinho really wants to win the Champions League with Chelsea having failed in previous years where his best run with the club was in the semi-finals of the competition. Arsenal great Thierry Henry believes that Chelsea will win the treble this year, he said: “They have all of the quality required to win the treble.... Time will tell. But that PSG game will be a massive task for them." What makes Chelsea such an impressive team has to be their defensive abilities and courage to defend. Willian, Costa and even Hazard will run half the pitch to attack and half the pitch back to defend if one of them loses the ball. This is the secret to Chelsea’s success. Add one amazing team, 3 cups of Mourinho magic, one Diego Costa and a pacey Eden Hazard and what do you get….a bunch of winners like our honourable Fikile Mbalula would say.
