A member of the Big Four more because of the money of Russian sugar daddy Roman Abramovich than anything else, Chelsea have one a mere 3 Top Division titles, with 2 of those coming in the Premier League days of big money. With Scolari, Chelsea have their third manager in as many years, failing to win a title with the best squad money can buy. Sort of this generation’s New York Yankees of the Premier League.  Last year, Chelsea just could not clear the Manchester United hurdle, losing out to them in the domestic Premier League race as well as the UEFA Champions League final.
