This was the year that Jose Mourinho delivered on his promise to bring the Premier League trophy to Stamford Bridge and did so in emphatic style. 

Some had their doubts whether Chelsea were wise to reappoint the Special One back in 2013, but their voices have been well and truly silenced now. 

Mourinho guaranteed he would win the title in his second season back in charge of his beloved Chelsea and that's exactly what he did in arguably the most dominating campaign in recent history as they led for a record 268 days. 

This ebook documents the story of a quite remarkable triumph where the Blues led, the second weekend aside, from start to finish and their rivals simply had no answer. 

Helped by the dazzling skills of Footballer of the Year Eden Hazard, the fight of top scorer Diego Costa, the artistry of midfielder Cesc Fabregas and leadership of captain John Terry, Chelsea literally proved too tough to beat. 

In the first half of the season, there was no better team to watch as Mourinho abandoned his more conservative approach to entertain football fans up and down the country. 

While things became more attritional after the new year, Mourinho still demonstrated why he is the best manager in the country by finding ways for his team to win games when the team was below their best. 

As frustration grew among their beleaguered opponents, accusations over being 'boring' were thrown Chelsea's way. 

But it was Mourinho and Chelsea who had the last laugh as the club won their fourth, his third, English championship in 11 years and no-one could argue they didn't deserve it.
