Chelsea In English Premier League 2020

The 2020/21 Chelsea FC season is the 115th in its history and 32 consecutively in the top English football division. Under the legend Frank Lampard's leadership and the tycoon Roman Abramovich's checkbook, the Blues want to fight for the title. The previous one was Lampard's first season managing the team of his entire life. He had to face the season without making signings due to a sanction imposed on the club. Still, he managed to lead the team to Champions League spots. After the 2019/20 season, Chelsea spent more than any other European club in the summer transfer window. They invested 220 million Euros in signings and generated a big expectation. So, their followers ask themselves, how far can Chelsea go in EPL 2020/21? We will try to respond to this question in the following lines.

Chelsea's Squad For The 2020/21 Season

Chelsea had a sight opposite to that of many other clubs about the moment created by the pandemic. Instead of avoiding big signings, they preferred to benefit from the transfer fees falling. Thus, they acquired the services of several first-level players. Havertz, Werner, and Ziyech arrived to form a formidable attack with Mount Abraham and Pulisic. This forward has nothing to envy to those of Liverpool or Manchester City. With these so young and talented elements, Lampard can establish a fast and effective attack. And don't forget the valuable dose of experience Giroud will give to this group. After that impressive offensive line, players such as Kanté, Jorginho, and Kovačić are a solid contention wall and attack starting point.

Moreover, the defense also received new pieces. They are Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. If there is a sector where the Blues must improve, it is this. Last campaign, they accepted 54 goals. It was the worst amount among the top ten classifieds. The veterans César Azpilicueta (31) and Thiago Silva (35) will lead the central defense. The team's captain accumulates 391 parties with this shirt, while Silva played for PSG during eight seasons. They will have the support of French Kurt Zouma and one of the best left-back currently, Ben Chilwell. Meanwhile, the goal is a worrying theme for Lampard. The Spanish goalie Kepa Arrizabalaga is not reliable. Lampard sometimes prefers the 39-years-old Argentinian Willy Caballero. In this sense, the Blues signed Édouard Mendy from French club Rennes looking to solve this situation. But, the Senegalese goalie was injured in early October in training with his country's national team.


How far can Chelsea go in this EPL season? Given the scenario before, this team shouldn't have problems scoring goals. But, improving defensively will be a big challenge for them. They have to improve a lot as soon as possible not to give their main rivals points. Besides, after that kind of investment, there will be pressure on Lampard to get results soon. In this sense, we can say that the 2020/21 Chelsea FC will reach Champions League positions again. However, disputing the title will require more effort since Liverpool and Manchester City are higher. Maybe one year later can be Chelsea's big moment, although a title now wouldn't be a surprise.
