The Chelsea Spot 2021/22 Season Predictions!

The season has begun and we’re two games in, with victories in both the Super Cup Final on penalties and against Crystal Palace on the opening gameweek of the Premier League season. Before the game against the Eagles, I asked our writers to give their season predictions, so let’s have a look at what they said…

Mash

Premier League Position – 2nd
POTS – Lukaku
Academy POTS – Jude Soonsup-Bell
Loan Army POTS – Armando Broja
Surprise Player – Trevoh Chalobah
Top Scorer – Lukaku
Will we win a trophy? – Yes (FA Cup)

Following an incredible past 3 months for Chelsea, I can see us really pushing on this season. 2 major European trophies will have had a crazy boost on our morale, and as many of the boys have said, we have a real family at the Bridge again. And just to clarify, Trev will be surprising because I feel he will have a much bigger role to play than people may think this season, and I think Tuchel believes in Trev just as much as we do. UTC.

Michael

Premier League Position – 2nd
POTS – Havertz
Academy POTS – Thierno Ballo
Loan Army POTS – Levi Colwill
Surprise Player – Timo Werner/Kai Havertz
Top Scorer – Lukaku
Will we win a trophy? – Yes (1 of the cups)

I think this next season is going to be interesting in terms of how we preform throughout the entirety of a season under Tuchel. I have faith in the squad to really be strong this year even before Lukaku, however he obviously improves us. A few things I’d like to see this season is a fair amount of minutes for Cal, and real development opportunities for our academy players. While it’s great to have these world class stars in our team and compete on all fronts, I do really hope we don’t overindulge and cast aside the potential we could sustain with guys on loan and in the dev squad right now.

Jon

Premier League Position – 1st
POTS – Havertz
Academy POTS – Soonsup-Bell
Loan Army POTS – Gilmour
Surprise Player – Hakim Ziyech/Trevoh Chalobah
Top Scorer – Timo Werner
Will we win a trophy? – Yes (Premier League)

Chelsea celebrate title triumph
It’s been ages since we won this trophy…

Luke

Premier League Position – 1st
POTS – Havertz
Academy POTS – Tino Anjorin
Loan Army POTS – Broja
Surprise Player – Werner
Top Scorer – Romelu Lukaku
Will we win a trophy? – Yes (FA Cup + Premier League)

I think with Lukaku coming in now, that’s the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle. We saw how defensively sound and snappy our build up play was towards the back end of last season, but now we have one of the best strikers in the world, there’s no excuse to not seriously challenge Man City.

Tino Anjorin signs five-year contract at Chelsea
Will Tino be stuck in the 23s again this season if he doesn’t go out on loan?!?

Rob

Premier League Position – 2nd
POTS – Kante
Academy POTS – Charlie Webster
Loan Army POTS – Gilmour
Surprise Player – Hakim Ziyech/Trevoh Chalobah
Top Scorer – Romelu Lukaku
Will we win a trophy? – Yes (FA Cup)

16 points is a substantial gap to close to a team that have just purchased Jack Grealish (and potentially Harry Kane) which may be a step too far for this young Chelsea team. The arrival of Lukaku has undoubtedly made us contenders but without a DM profile that will enable some more tactical flexibility for Tuchel, I think there will be a number of frustrating games that will cost Chelsea necessary points. The biggest test will be whether the likes of Rudiger and Christensen are able to retain their impressive form under Tuchel.

Sairam

Premier League Position – 2nd
POTS – Lukaku
Academy POTS – Charlie Webster
Loan Army POTS – Billy Gilmour
Surprise Player – Kepa *surname*
Top Scorer – Romelu Lukaku
Will we win a trophy? – Yes (FA Cup + Club World Cup)

Chelsea determined to keep academy star Charlie Webster
Both Sairam and Rob predicted the very talented midfielder to be Academy Player of the Season!

Frankie

Premier League Position – 2nd
POTS – Havertz
Academy POTS – Vale
Loan Army POTS – Conor Gallagher
Surprise Player – Mason Mount
Top Scorer – Lukaku
Will we win a trophy? – Yes (Club World Cup + Carabao Cup)

It will be a grueling season that will need a lot of rotation to survive the 50+ games we will play this year. Coming off a Champions League triumph, the expectations are high for Chelsea and many people see Chelsea as favourites to win the League. This will be a new challenge for Tuchel and the players as I feel our current squad thrives on being the underdog.

Danny

Premier League Position – 1st
POTS – Mount
Academy POTS – Soonsup-Bell
Loan Army POTS – Gilmour
Surprise Player – Ruben Loftus-Cheek
Top Scorer – Lukaku
Will we win a trophy? – Yes (FA Cup)

We have the clinical number 9 we were crying out for, now it’s time to challenge City. Chelsea are going to need a fourth midfield option (Kante can’t play every week!) and Rubes could grab his chance in cup competitions and matches against lower table opposition. The King Romelu has returned and I expect him to feast on the countless chances he’ll be provided. We needed a clinical striker last season and now we have one capable of surpassing 20 league goals per season. Failing that, Jorginho to top score with 5 hop-skip-jump penalties.
