‘The Special One’ has returned and how ! Five years after their last league title under Carlo Ancelotti, The Blues confirmed their status as champions with 3 games to spare. 35 games and 69 goals later, Mourinho has finally triumphed over the tactical Pellegrini, the wily Wenger and the dictator like Louis Van Gaal.  After a summer blitz which saw them notch wins over their tops, Chelsea received wide-range criticism for their pragmatic and defensive approach. They dropped Costa in games, often playing their their PFA Player of the Year Eden Hazard in a false number nine role. Here why Chelsea have won the league in the 2014/15 season:-

Summer Signings
Chelsea signed Diego Costa before the end of last season, with the powerful striker scoring 24 goals, combined with 3 assists for the Blues.  At the end of August, the Spainard already had 4 league goals, with a hattrick against Everton in the remarkable 6-3 game at Goodison Park. Chelsea then signed Cesc Fabregas, the former Arsenal captain who has 22 assists this season from Barcelona who has always been their fulcrum of attack.
 
Jose Mourinho
There is a method to his madness, be it at his time at Madrid or Inter Milan. The Portuguese has been excellent in strategy and implementation this season, marshalling his forces well. Often hailed for being boring, but what matters are the titles  and medals. He has also lead Chelsea to the League Cup title this season, beating their cross-town rivals Spurs in the final.
 
Defence
The back four of Azpilicueta, Terry, Cahill and Ivanovic have been rock-solid this season, often playing out games. They have also scored the odd goal in games, with captain John Terry now the joint highest goal scoring defender in the league. Hiding in their attacking armour has been the defensive shield of Nemanja Matic, who has been phenomenal in breaking up play.
 
 
Stability
Chelsea have used only 23 players this season, compared to Manchester United’s 37. Having a fixed starting eleven is paramount to any winning team, combined with gritty performances makes a winning team.
 
 
Opposition
Arsenal, Liverpool,  City, all contenders for the title have suffered a drop in form at crucial times in the league. Liverpool, after the sale of Suarez lost their goal-scoring prowess, while City were blighted by injuries. Arsenal lacked consistency, with The Red Devils getting accustomed to the ways of Louis Van Gaal.
