Many saw his return to Stamford Bridge as being a major indicator the Blues would lift the Premier League trophy again. But their deficiencies eventually restricted them to a third-place finish. Champions League semi-final is also no surprise for them.

May be Chelsea is lacking a true world class striker. They have plenty of talent in defense and midfield. So their downfall is probably the cause of striker.

Chelsea mustn’t be planning for being undefeated against the top four in the league. It can be a better prospect for the teams like Aston Villa, Sunderland or Crystal Palace. As these are the present struggling teams. They soaked up pressure before striking. They could have liked a shock victory against their opponents.

This season ended for Chelsea a little bitter way. In some cases they progressed but they had to put an end without being able to punish their opponent squads.

Diego Costa and Mario Mandzukic:

Mourinho has already been quick to act for the remedy. He is waiting for Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid to arrive imminently. There is also another possibility. The Brazilian cum Spaniard could be joined in attack by another striker. This one is from Bayern Munich, Mario Mandzukic.

The World Cup event may be taking all the focus for the present month and half of the next. But these rumors prove that Chelsea have plenty of fans to be excited about even in this World Cup event.

Definitely, the potential of two big names (Diego Costa and Mario Mandzukic) arriving at Stamford Bridge will whet the appetite. Still, there are confusions about the other front men from the Blues.

The English media is expecting that Chelsea will be finding an entirely new front line for them, next season.

Everyone is expecting, Fernando Torres as the biggest casualty. Even Chelsea star Demba Ba’s future is questioned. Many suggesting him to join the Turkish club Besiktas.

Another thing, Samuel Eto’o’s one-year contract will expire shortly. He hasn’t been offered a renewal. Romelu Lukaku is also in doubt. Will he be trading places with Diego Costa at Aletico Madrid??

Regardless of the talent he acquired, Mourinho could well be placing himself in a weaker position if he offloads all four players as suggested.

Both the players Diego Costa and Mario Mandzukic have proven their undoubted qualities in recent seasons. But it’s very difficult to rely that much on just two front men to carry the Blues’ hopes. Even it’ll be risky for Mourinho himself.

Chelsea would become incredibly weak, if one of these players get suspensions, injury or even loss of form. Their rivals will not allow them such weakness endured.

Manchester city have already big stars like Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko, Stevan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo. They just need to choose from. While Liverpool also added Rickie Lambert to their ranks.

This is not a rare story. Similarly each of the clubs in this continent is trying to boost up their front line with enviable forwards. May be Mourinho needs to do the same. Diego Costa and Mario Mandzukic can easily be the preference.

There is not many more options of clearing out the players who failed to prove themselves last season. The manager must find something more to flourish them. And this can be a greater solution for him.

Various times in the last stages of 2013 and 2014, Ba came to rescue Chelsea. He scored some the vital goals, especially against Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool. Fernando Torres also proved in Europe. He scored five goals in ten Champions League matches.

When given an opportunity, Lukaku also scores for the team. Though he was much more successful in Everton. But he tries his best to find some space for the Chelsea team.

Now that, in a situation like this Mourinho must take a decision. A decision about the former strikers and the upcoming twos. The World Cup 2014 have already seen, Diego Costa failed to prove for the Spaniards. Mandzukic still going on with pace and beauty. He can become a great addition for the Blues.

Yes of course, again after 12 months, we will be here discussing the transitions at Stamford Bridge. But Mourinho must be needing some urge to accomplish as to reside with the Blues for some more. Then the statistics will also be with us about Diego Costa and Mario Mandzukic at Chelsea.

Why Jose Mourinho will lead Manchester United to the title this season

Without a shadow of a doubt, Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs on the planet and Jose Mourinho is a fantastic fit for the Old Trafford hot seat.

The Red Devils have failed to inspire confidence since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013 but this could be United’s time to climb back to the top of the Premier League table. With Mourinho at the helm, they are definitely in with a shout…

Mourinho was always destined to manage United one day – ever since his Porto side defied the odds to knock the Red Devils out of the Champions League back in 2004. On that day, United fans had to watch Mourinho celebrate extravagantly on the Old Trafford touchline but he could be rejoicing in a Reds title success at the end of the season.

The Portuguese outfit went on to win the competition and Mourinho was appointed as Chelsea manager; the rest is history. Despite his struggles at Stamford Bridge last season, the new United boss is still a fantastic manager and he could be the man to bring the Premier League title back to Old Trafford.

As of September 9th, United are priced at 3/1 to win the title and plenty of punters will fancy the 13-time winners to win another top flight crown. Leicester produced one of the most memorable title triumphs in Premier League history last season and bettors will be looking for David v Goliath odds at Betway in the hope of another shock success.

However, it is difficult to look past United this season – especially with Mourinho at the helm. The Reds boss managed to acquire all four of his main transfer targets in the summer window and the likes of Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Eric Bailly will all play key roles for United throughout the campaign.

It would be foolish to claim that United’s name is on the trophy; there are a number of title contenders this time around. But if truth be told, Mourinho’s men are looking very strong and they are perhaps the most equipped for a sustained title challenge. After all, the Red Devils squad is looking much better than it was at the beginning of the summer…

There will be plenty of twists and turns along the way but United will be quietly confident of notching their 14th Premier League crown before the end of May. Pogba, Ibrahimović and Mourinho have helped to bring the fear factor back to Old Trafford and there is a positive buzz on the terraces. Only time will tell but it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Wayne Rooney lifting the title at the end of the campaign – watch this space…

Jose Mourinho’s side finished the table with eight points ahead of Manchester City. Manchester City is another club who received the second-highest earning of £98.5 million.

On the other hand, Van Gaal’s Manchester United who finished fourth in the table, ultimately trumped 3rd place Arsenal in regard of financial prize. Manchester United have played more televised matches, which is 27, than the Gunners’ (25). That may be the reason for the Manchester United to stand above Arsenal in terms of prize money.

English Premier League’s lucrative prize money are focused after watching the money earned by the rest of the division. The last-placed Queens Park Rangers drop into the EPL championship for the second time in last three years and they were able to earn around £65 million.

The last season of EPL was so eventful for the teams. With Manchester United’s tiresome quest for Champions League and Chelsea’s simple title win- the red devils were more popular on live TV than any other English club. Another club, Newcastle United battled with the relegation and an unexpected development throughout the season, drew the media attention more than any other teams. They appeared on TV 20 times and only five teams were able to exceed that media coverage.
