2. Rotate and reinforce the squad

The season is long and full of terrors. His inability to rotate the squad came back to haunt Jose Mourinho in the middle of last season as the tired legs of his weary team lost important matches to Bradford City and PSG. Premier League results also dropped. Yet, somehow, Chelsea trudged on to win the title. However, Mourinho is far from learning from his mistakes. Most of the squad he played the whole of last season with has been playing week in and week out this season as well, and the lack of imagination in the side is beginning to show. Goals have dried up, and the approach is too predictable.

New signings are needed to freshen things up and improve the team. Pedro, a parachute signing from Barcelona, was a revelation in his first game and can do wonders for the team. Academy players such as Patrick Bamford and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have also been knocking on the first team doors for a long time. Mourinho needs to shuffle his squad, and if he plans to make new signings, he better make them quick as the transfer window’s ending is almost upon us.
