Repeating as champions of the English Premier League is no easy task, but it’s one Chelsea will attempt to accomplish in 2015/16. Under Jose Mourinho, the Blues won back-to-back titles in 2005 and 2006. Manchester United won three straight from 2007-2009, and only four different clubs have won the Premier League since 1995. Those same four teams — Chelsea, Man United, Manchester City and Arsenal — are the favorites to win the league again this term.
First up for Chelsea is Swansea City, who finished eighth last season for its highest placing in club history. This came despite losing top scorer Wilfried Bony to Manchester City during the season. 2015/16 will be Swansea’s fourth campaign in the top flight.
