Chelsea fans will be feeling optimistic ahead of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign despite the absence of arrivals this summer.

The Blues finished last season in third spot and emerged victorious in the Europa League. With Champions League football to play and Frank Lampard in charge, the identity of the club is slowly coming back.

Lampard endured a successful season with Derby County in the 2018/19 campaign but missed out on promotion at the final hurdle; a play-off final defeat to Aston Villa, however, still impressed Chelsea enough to bring him back to Stamford Bridge – this time as manager.

The west London club were handed a transfer ban for this summer window, but they made an astute purchase back in January. Christian Pulisic signed for the Blues for £58million and he is now part of the squad following his loan-spell back at Borussia Dortmund to finish the season.

Chelsea will be hoping to get off to a similar start as last year – a 3-0 victory away at Huddersfield was the perfect stepping stone for the rest of the campaign. However, they face a much tougher test this time around with a trip to Old Trafford. If you think the Blues will beat Manchester United on Sunday, bet365 are currently offering odds of 13/5 for them to do so.

The aforementioned Pulisic will be determined to start his career in north London with a goal. Many fans are optimistic about the 20-year-old and if you think he will start his Premier League campaign with a goal, he is 16/5 with SkyBet to score anytime.

Chelsea will be seeking Champions League glory under Lampard’s leadership and you can expect them to have a strong season in the Premier League alongside their European journey.
