Chelsea is showing a lot of ambition this season as the team looks to welcome a new age of glory in Europe and their domestic league. Winning the Champions League last season could have only fueled a fire that was already stoked when the team went after the best youngsters in Europe and gave German tactician Thomas Tuchel the club’s reins. Fans will no doubt be thrilled and looking to take advantage of the teams growing confidence and other sites.

The Blues have started their season well, winning two out of their three fixtures, and earning a big point against Liverpool despite finishing the game with ten men. The Londoners lie in third place, two points off leaders Tottenham and behind another London team, West Ham. So far, the Blues have faced Arsenal, Crystal Palace, and Liverpool, scoring six goals and conceding just one. Tuchel’s men seem to have taken to his philosophy and are playing confidently at the moment. However, the coming weeks will test the mettle of the ambitious team, as they face strong competition from serious foes in the league and European competition. The Champions League returns after the break, which means it will be an alternating of domestic and European nights as the Londoners look to defend their Champions League crown.

That title defense will start after facing Aston Villa in the league on September 11. The defending champions will welcome Zenit St. Petersburg to Stamford Bridge on September 14. A London clash will follow that midweek game as Tuchel’s men go to North London to face Tottenham, who are off to a blistering start to their campaign with a perfect three out of three so far. Two days later, it will be Aston Villa to test the Blues again in round 3 of the Carabao Cup. Thomas Tuchel will have a difficult decision to make in terms of priorities becauseit will be a quick turnaround for the Blues who face defending domestic champions, Manchester City, three days after the Cup game. This stretch of trial will get the cherry on the top on September 29, when the Blues travel to Turin to face Juventus.

September will be a strong test of Chelsea’s character and resolve for this season and should be indicative of how much the team is ready to become the new face of the Premier League and Europe. The Blues certainly have the manpower to overcome the challenge. Chelsea has one of the most balanced squads in Europe with a world-class striker in Lukaku, two Ballon d’Or-contending midfielders in N’Golo Kante and Jorginho, and a defense leader in Thiago Silva. In addition, the plethora of young talent around these key pieces is mouthwatering, with the likes of Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount, and Edouard Mendy.
