Jose Mourinho could be looking at a league and cup double next season if all goes well for the Portuguese during his first season back in charge of Chelsea. The 50-year-old made winning trophies a habit during his first stint at Stamford Bridge, claiming the league twice and the FA Cup in 2007. Now back at the helm, he is the bookies’ favourite to lift the Premier League crown next term and continue Chelsea’s outstanding FA Cup record over the past 15 years.
Mourinho is blessed with a squad that is ready to challenge for major honours. Despite two rocky seasons the club have come through with a team that look focussed, drilled and, importantly, care for the club and their teammates. You only had to watch how they went about beating Benfica in the Europa League final last May to see how much this team work for each other. Despite going into the tie as underdogs off the back of a 65-game season, Chelsea withheld a Benfica bombardment before hitting their opponents at the vital time. Fernando Torres’ goal was as clinical as Branislav Ivanovic’s winner and the Blues’ determination to stick it out to the end proved their ally on the day.
Mourinho is a manager who prides work ethic and team togetherness over individual talent – which is maybe one of the reasons he fell out with Cristiano Ronaldo in his final months at the Bernabeu – and what he has at his disposal now is a quality squad. The midfield is impeccable, with Frank Lampard directing play ahead of John Obi Mikel and David Luiz. Lampard orchestrates his forward line as Juan Mata, Oscar and Ramires flow in and out of each other, not to mention the dangerous Eden Hazard.
There is no attacking unit quite like Chelsea’s in the Premier League, a statement that can be said about the quality of the Game On slots machine in an online casino. Just like Chelsea, Game On is the popular choice for sports and gaming punters when betting online. The game relies on a mix of skill and luck, just like Chelsea’s title challenge will be, but the rewards are huge if you work hard and concentrate. You won’t win a title at the online casino but you could land a huge jackpot that could come in handy ahead of the new season.
