New contract for Jose Mourinho would spell long-term success for Chelsea

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Ross Dyer weigh in on if Chelsea is the club to keep Jose Mourinho around for a long time.

News that Chelsea are preparing to offer manager Jose Mourinho an improved and extended contract has been welcomed by Blues supporters.

Having signed a four-year deal when he returned to Stamford Bridge in June 2013, Mourinho set about the task of restoring the London club to the pinnacle of the English game. Two years down the line, the Portuguese has done just that. The Premier League has been secured in emphatic fashion, with the added glory of a Capital One Cup final triumph over Tottenham at...

Chelsea's Premier League title win has been solid but not spectacular

Eden Hazard's header following a saved penalty was enough to secure Chelsea's fourth Premier League title.

In recent Premier League campaigns, we've been treated to some outstanding end-of-season drama.

Sergio Aguero's 94th-minute winner against QPR to seal the 2011-12 title for Manchester City was the most incredible clincher in the Premier League era, while other run-ins have also been memorable: Chelsea sealed the title in 2009-10 with an 8-0 victory on the final day, and Manchester United's 2013 triumph was clinched with a Robin van Persie strike that was voted goal of the season.

Even when the clinching...

The tactical keys to Chelsea's Premier League-winning campaign

Jose Mourinho lauded his Chelsea players for the determination, quality and consistency that secured the Blues' fourth Premier League title, following a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

In the age of tactical flexibility and squad rotation, Chelsea's title has been built on old-fashioned principles. Jose Mourinho has stuck to the same 4-2-3-1 framework throughout the campaign and has used the same players: three are ever-presents in the Premier League, 10 have started at least 26 games and an 11th, Diego Costa, would surely have done likewise but for injuries and suspension.

Chelsea's triumph has been based on key performers playing key roles and, tactically, six men have been particularly...

Serial winner Mourinho puts Rodgers to shame with tactics and trophies

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Ross Dyer weigh in on if Chelsea is the club to keep Jose Mourinho around for a long time.
Jose Mourinho outfoxed Brendan Rodgers at Anfield last season, when Liverpool threw away the league title, and the Chelsea boss' record in big games puts Rodgers' to shame.

The temptation is to look for evidence of influence, similarities and ideas passed down through managerial generations, yet while there was a time when Jose Mourinho and Brendan Rodgers seemed master and apprentice, they now appear opposites.

That's not just because of the 21st Century enmity between Chelsea and Liverpool; nouveau-riche force and historic power.

This is the serial winner against the nearly-man. Mourinho has secured 18 major pieces of silverware, but Rodgers, 10 years his junior,...

The moments that defined Chelsea's Premier League-winning campaign

The ESPN FC team once again debate whether or not Chelsea played boring football, following Ruud Gullit's statements on Jose Mourinho's managerial style.

With 25 wins and only two defeats in the 35 games that it took for Chelsea to be crowned Premier League champions, it is clear that consistency has provided the fundamental base for the team's success. Yet despite their machine-like quality to churn out result after result, there are a few particular matches that stand out as either pivotal to the eventual outcome or symbolic of the Blues' return to the top of the English game this season.
