Chelsea are reborn under new manager Antonio Conte. They won the Premier League title in 2016-17, his first year in charge. The west Londoners should be a force for years to come. Conte introduced a new system to the Premier League, employing three center backs and two wing-backs who flood up the field while also tending to their defensive responsibilities. Other teams followed Conte's lead, employing a very similar system in an attempt to emulate the charismatic Italian's success. The future is bright in west London.

Chelsea, before the 2016-17 commenced, were +600 joint third favorites to lift the Premier League crown. They smashed that billing, eventually running away with the title. Conte is a player's manager and shows why the team - and supporters - are so fond of him. He brings unbridled energy to the touchline, guiding his players like a maestro on a weekly basis.
Chelsea were brilliant both home and away, recording the league's best away record. They weren't quite as good at home, but still all but automatic at Stamford Bridge. Feel free to back this team to win most games, but you'll want to add them to a parlay as your returns will be minimal on a straight moneyline win.
The Blues lay claim to one of the best defenses in the Premier League and were the most prolific attack in 2016-17. You'll have to dig deeper into the analytics to decide whether the over or under is on the cards. As a rule of thumb, though, back the over when Chelsea play at home and the under when the Blues play in hostile territory.
Can this team repeat as champions in 2017-18? Most definitely. Just keep one thing in mind, though. They will now have to contend with Champions League soccer, thereby playing about 10-20 more games in the coming season. Conte will have to show his football intelligence in balancing the schedule while rotating his players to ensure fatigue doesn't hamper their title hopes.
