CHELSEA have not been shy in splashing the cash since Todd Boehly replaced Roman Abramovich as owner.
But now, Graham Potter has his work cut out inspiring a charge up the Premier League table – starting on Friday night against noisy neighbours Fulham.
The Blues are currently languishing in TENTH in the standings, 21 points adrift of league leaders Arsenal and ten points off the top four.
chelsea spent a staggering £259.1million in the summer before shelling out a further £329.9m in January – including the British record £106m move for Enzo from Benfica.
Potter was unable to offload Hakim Ziyech, with plenty more deadwood likely to be shifted come the summer.
Now Potter will have to work some magic to work out his best XI and how to keep all of his big-name stars happy despite a logjam in the burgeoning squad.
Unfortunately for them, they come up against West London rivals Fulham – who beat them 2-1 just three weeks ago.
For so long, the Cottagers have been hidden in their shadow, but now they sit ABOVE Chelsea in the standings after their promotion last summer.. and deservedly so.
Fulham sit in seventh, but are only two points above their neighbours.. and the Blues have a game in hand
