With almost 2 months until the end of the season, do Chelsea have enough time to transform this season into a successful one? Rafael Benitez has already labeled this season as a great one; however most Chelsea fans could disagree.
Chelsea are now 4th place in the Premier League 2 points behind Tottenham with a game in hand with 8 games remaining. Chelsea hope to end in the top 4 but will that be enough? Chelsea started the campaign with the expectation of finishing 2nd or 3rd and it isn’t impossible, Chelsea can still twist things around and finish the campaign 3rd in front of Tottenham and Arsenal which could be enough to call this Premier League campaign a successful one.
In the FA Cup, Chelsea have beat Manchester United in the quarter-finals after a dramatic comeback. Now they will face Manchester City in the semifinals on the 14th of April. The FA Cup is certainly one of the cups we could win this season
Another Cup Chelsea are still participating in is the Europa League, they are now in the quarterfinal round against Rubin Kazan. Chelsea expected Champions League football this year as they were Champions of Europe last year, however, if Chelsea win the Europa League it wouldn’t be too bad.
In conclusion, in my opinion, if we win the FA Cup and the Europa League and end 3rd in the Premier League this could be remembered as a successful one. However, I don’t really expect Chelsea to win both cups due to the fixture pile-up. Of course this season could have been better, but it isn’t the worst that could’ve happened.
