The 2015-16 Premier League season kicks off on August 8 – when champions Chelsea will begin their quest at keeping their hands on the trophy.
Jose Mourinho’s Blues eased to title triumph last season with three games to spare, and finished with an eight point gap over runners-up Manchester City. It was the first time the trophy had returned to Stamford Bridge in five years, and the club’s Portuguese manager will no doubt be strengthening his side over the summer to further improve the chances of its stay in west London.
