How I think first five games of the season will end up

Chelsea fans all over the world are still celebrating Jose Mourinho's return to the club. Exactly what the team needed,a world class manager. Fortunately,it happens to be "The Happy One" that returns to fill the void he left few years ago. 

Rival clubs are probably still wishing its still all a dream. Mourinho's return to Chelsea is in no way good news for any top European club other than Chelsea.

I have this feeling Chelsea will win the league next season,playing Hull City on opening day,having Jose Mourinho back,they all bring good memories,don't they? Chelsea will however have to start the season strongly then build on that. 

GAME 1: CHELSEA 6 Vs 0 HULL CITY

There's no better way to start a season than a good victory,Chelsea have the quality to totally demolish Hull City especially at Stamford Bridge. Hull City should be punished for their pre-season comments.

Romelu Lukaku bags a brace,Eden Hazard scores a beauty before coming off for new boy Andre Schurrle who nets a 25 yard stunner,David Luiz scores his trademark free-kick and Ramires completes the rout through a counter-attack as Hull City go all out to grab a goal.

Real baptism of fire for Hull City as Chelsea get their season off to a flying start.

GAME 2: MANCHESTER UNITED 2 Vs 4 CHELSEA

Chelsea travel to Old Trafford for their first game of the season,to play Manchester United with the whole world watching on.

Chelsea open the scoring in the first half through Juan Mata,a perfect cross from the right by De Bruyne met by Mata's head (rare goal) before extending the lead courtesy of Kevin De Bruyne. Manchester United grab a goal through Robin Van Persie just before the break.

United continue to knock on Chelsea's door but the defence up to the task. A David Luiz long pass finds Ramires who sprints on before squaring the ball towards substitute Oscar in the box who calmly slots the ball past the helpless David De Gea into goal. Torres comes on for Romelu Lukaku who have been denied two goals by the post and De Gea and scores with his first touch,latching to Eden Hazard's through ball before rounding the keeper the way he loves to.    With an humiliating defeat approaching for United,David Moyes sends Javier Hernandez on. Chelsea's defence fail to clear a ball in the box and Hernandez pounces on the ball and scores against Chelsea again.

A win like this is precious,your team's confidence rises and directly affects a rival team.    

GAME 3: CHELSEA 1 Vs 0 ASTON VILLA

Back to the bridge,Chelsea's fortress. Mourinho's Chelsea welcome Aston villa.

Chelsea suffer dip in form,the attacking players miss many clear-cut chances. Petr Cech makes quality saves from Aston Villa players,the defenders especially Gary Cahill in top form. An Aston Villa defender brings Eden Hazard down in the box,Frank Lampard steps up and fires the ball straight down the middle.

A win is a win!Three points is what matters. Champions win even on their off-day.

GAME 4: EVERTON 1 Vs 3 CHELSEA

Goodison Park is not usually fun to travel to. Its still one of the stadiums you must play.

Chelsea get straight to business,Andre Schurrle cuts inside on the left flank and escapes the challenge of Jagielka before sending an unstoppable rifle past Howard. Everton's reaction to going behind results in a penalty Leighton Baines happily converts.

Jose Mourinho makes two changes midway through the second half. Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku coming on for Oscar and Fernando Torres. The changes pay dividends almost instantly as Lukaku heads a Frank Lampard long pass onto Juan Mata who skips past Jagielka and chips the ball over Howard to restore Chelsea's lead. Romelu Lukaku gets his own goal late in the game,heading Azpilicueta's dangerous cross from the right wing into the top-left corner to secure Chelsea's win.

Chelsea go two points clear of Manchester City and look good for the title already.

GAME 5: CHELSEA 2 Vs 0 FULHAM

Derbies are always tricky,that's why london clubs need to work hard to win the title. Fulham come visiting...

After a goalless first-half,Jose Mourinho's team talk seems to have a positive effect on the players. Mata and Hazard have a nice exchange before the latter hit the ball in the air with his left foot straight into the net. Chelsea continue to dominate,Juan Mata then beats David Luiz to a free-kick on the edge of the box,he sends a curling shot around the wall into the net as Fulham's goal-keeper watched on. 

An outstanding performance by Petr Cech and the rest of Chelsea's defence contributes to their third BPL clean sheet of the season and they still haven't conceded at home. Brimming with confidence,the team go marching on!


CONCLUSION
Hmmm...how many Chelsea fans will hate to see Chelsea start the 13/14 season this well? Without imagining Edinson Cavani at Chelsea,the team is still strong enough to mount a challenge for the title. Its almost like a dream but a dream that can turn into reality. Let's see your own prediction,who knows? You just might be the one to get them all right and be our new Octopus.
