As Chelsea close in on a certain Premier League title win as they take on Crystal Palace at home this afternoon, here’s a look at how this Blues squad compares to their class of 2010, when Carlo Ancelotti led the club to a league and FA Cup double…
GK: Thibaut Courtois vs Petr Cech
Two superb goalkeepers, Thibaut Courtois has edged the Czech Republic legend for the number one spot this season, though Petr Cech at his peak arguably remains the club’s finest shot-stopper ever.
DR: Branislav Ivanovic
A key part of both title-winning teams, Branislav Ivanovic is heading for his second title win with Chelsea.
DL: Cesar Azpilicueta vs Ashley Cole
Although Cesar Azpilicueta has done superbly to replace Ashley Cole at Stamford Bridge this season, his predecessor is a club legend and one of the best left-backs to play in England.
