It's tough to believe this team wouldn't win the league in any year...
The pundit's verdict: In goal...
Petr Cech was a world-class goalkeeper, and he saved a lot of points. He never let Chelsea down and was a phenomenal goalkeeper who also saved a penalty in the Champions League final. Brilliant.
A very solid defence, with two proper centre-halves in John Terry and Gary Cahill. Ashley Cole is probably the best English left-back of all time, and Cesar Azpilicueta is still reliable.
Cesc Fabregas is as good a passer as you'll ever seen, beside another engine in N'Golo Kante, who can do everything as well. Eden Hazard, again, is one of the most talented players to play in the Premier League. And of course, Frank Lampard, who continued scoring for four-and-a-half years into the 2010s.
And wow, name me two defenders who would want to play against Didier Drogba and Diego Costa. Absolutely brilliant.
