Another year and yet again we see another revolution at Stamford Bridge as legendary player Frank Lampard has been given a unique chance to become the club's new manager.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich usually opts for experience when seeking a new manager on almost a yearly basis.
But Lampard is a special case, as the Blues look for a regime able to cope with FIFA's imposed transfer ban on the club. Lampard has been fast-tracked from Derby County to Chelsea as he looks to reduce his new side's average age, thus turning the ban from a negative into a positive.
Christian Pulisic was signed for £58 million from Borussia Dortmund and then loaned to the German side for the last six months of last season. The American will be a key figure at Chelsea this season with Eden Hazard being the only headline departure, leaving in an £88m deal for Real Madrid.
The Blues need to learn to be patient with Lampard as they look to contend with a 20-point gap and the high bar set by Manchester City and Liverpool last season.
However, many will be hoping for an immediate impact as west London is a place that has become accustomed to success.
