Will Chelsea FC retain the title in 2018?
After winning the Premier League last season by a margin of 7 points, many pundits are already claiming The Blues are favourites to retain the title in 2018. However, here are some reasons why it may be easier said than done:
- Champions League Football
Chelsea fans are no doubt delighted that the club will be back in the Champions League this season and competing once more against Europe's top clubs. However, this extra football comes at a cost with a taxing schedule and a strain on even the strongest squads. There is no doubt that Chelsea benefitted last season from not having to travel to all corners of Europe, therefore concentrating solely on the Premier League. Fewer games mean that clubs have longer recovery time between matches and can also spend more time on the training ground honing their tactics.
The honeymoon period for manager Antonio Conte is now over. He undoubtedly helped transform Chelsea from an underperforming side into champions. However, we all know the second season is never as easy. Teams may have figured out a way to beat his 3-4-3 system. Add to that, no team has successfully defended the Premier League since Alex Ferguson's Man Utd in 2009, and it looks like Conte's team has their work cut out for them.
These are just two examples of why Chelsea fans shouldn't be complacent. Having said that, fans are still hopeful and one thing is for certain, the Premier League in 2017/18 will be filled with surprises.
