Chelsea's season has got off to the best possible start. A 3-1 win over Burnley in their first game set the tone having come from 1-0 down to win at Turf Moor, and a 2-0 win over another newly promoted side, Leicester City, followed. The trip to Everton was supposed to be their toughest test so far, but they passed that with flying colours as Diego Costa bagged his third and fourth goals of the season in a stunning 6-3 win.
Now coined as title favourites, Chelsea enter the international break in top form. Most of the Blues squad now head away to play for their countries, with their next league game against Swansea on the 13th of September - and four could be starting together this weekend.
Left back Filipe Luis and midfielders Ramries, Willian and Oscar are all in Dunga's first Brazil squad since being reappointed as manager following Luiz Felipe Scolari's sacking. With a friendly against Colombia in Miami on the horizon this weekend, reports suggest that all four will start the game at Sun Life Stadium.

Filipe Luis was inexplicably left out of Brazil's squad for the World Cup despite having an exceptional season with Atletico Madrid last term - a season in which he proved that he was better than Marcelo, who was first choice for Scolari this summer. It's somewhat ironic that he gets his chance to start now given that he's yet to start a Premier League game for Chelsea, with Jose Mourinho preferring to use Cesar Azpilicueta at left back.
Meanwhile, Oscar's form remains patchy and Willian has been in and out of the Chelsea team as a result of Andre Schurrle's form, but Ramires certainly earned his place with a great display against Everton last weekend.
