2016/17 was a very successful season for Chelsea FC. They reached the FA Cup final, and most importantly, won the Premier League in their first season managed by Antonio Conte. There were doubts at the beginning of the season that Conte was the right man, after losses to rivals Arsenal and Liverpool. However, after a change of formation, Conte had a very successful season and in the end Chelsea ran out comfortable winners of the league.
Of course, last season they had no European football after a poor 2015/16 season. This meant they had fewer games than most of their rivals and players had more recovery time between each game. In the long run, this probably helped them but this season will be different. Having qualified for the Champions League group stages, most weeks they will be playing two games per week.
So here is the Chelsea FC Squad 2018/19. Below is all the players who will play for Chelsea FC Squad in the 2018/19 season.
The Chelsea line up 2018/19 season consist of these players.
Chelsea have the most expensive goalkeeper in the world now after signing Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga for a world record £71.6 million transfer fee. Chelsea had to buy swiftly just a day before the transfer window shut in summer 2018 after former goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois went AWOL prior to the season starting. Courtois, who was sold to Real Madrid for just £35 million, had just one season remaining on his contract and was eager to leave the Blues. Chelsea also let former number three goalkeeper Eduardo leave so Chelsea signed former England goalkeeper and veteran Robert Green on a free transfer. In 2017, The Blues signed Manchester City keeper Willy Caballero, who was released by City manager Pep Guardiola. Cabellero may not get much game time at Stamford Bridge, but at his age he will be happy with perhaps just a few opportunities through the course of the season.
After Antonio Conte switched to a Three at the Back formation, Chelsea’s defence conceded many less goals and the defenders even scored some goals themselves too. Unfortunately, they lost captain and club legend John Terry at the end of the season. As a replacement, they bought AS Roma defender Antonio Rudiger. He had a great season in Serie A and will provide good competition for Gary Cahill and David Luiz. Deadline day signing Davide Zappacosta will act as back-up for both full-back positions, with Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso the likely starters. Emerson was bought in the January transfer window 2018 to provide cover and competition for left wing-back Marcos Alonso. In summer 2018, Chelsea sacked manager Antonio Conte and brought in Maurizio Sarri from Napoli.
The addition of no.7 N’Golo Kante last season really made a difference for Chelsea. His drive and hard working nature in deep midfield really changed the course of games and had an impact on how well Chelsea’s season played out. Chelsea have recently signed new recruit Tiemoue Bakayoko for big money from Monaco. The Frenchman was bought for £34 million and will compete with fellow new signing Danny Drinkwater for a place in midfield. In the January transfer window Chelsea bought Ross Barkley from Everton to provide competition and cover for Cesc Fabregas.
This summer in 2018, Chelsea signed former Napoli play maker Jorginho. The Italian-Brazilian will link up with former Napoli coach and new Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri. Chelsea capped off some fine transfer business in summer 2018 after signing highly-rated Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic on loan from Real Madrid. Furthermore, Chelsea loaned out Tiemoue Bakayoko to AC Milan for a season with an option to buy after his struggles to adapt to the Premier League in 2017/18.
Chelsea have a lethal set of attackers and have just added £70 million Alvaro Morata to their ranks. The likes of Eden Hazard, Pedro and Willian all caught the eye last year and really impressed fans and critics. Diego Costa returned to Atletico Madrid in a £50 million deal after a summer of speculation. The Spaniard went on strike and failed to report back for pre-season training the force through a move. Can Morata fill the void left by his international teammate? Chelsea also signed Olivier Giroud from Arsenal on transfer deadline day in January 2018, while Michy Batshuayi was loaned out to Borussia Dortmund.
