The Stamford Bridge side have seen an influx of players arrive in West London but does the talent match the price tags?
Chelsea are undergoing a period of great transition. A formidable backbone of John Terry, Michael Essien, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba was one of the long-surviving heartbeats of the mid to late 2000s, however, in recent campaigns, that spine has undergone replacement surgery.
Marco van Ginkel has the expectancy to replace the stability and reliability of Lampard, Eto'o has been brought in and will likely become automatic first-choice, while Willian will rival other attackers like Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and fellow import Andre Schurrle for a starting role.
In total, Chelsea have spent over £60m on their latest additions.
