Chelsea won the Premier League title with Jose Mourinho in 2014/15 season, as the Blues raced to the title from the early stages of the league till the end of the season.

However, due to poor pre-season preparations, lack of signings and internal unrest in the Chelsea squad, Chelsea struggled the following season as the team flirted in the relegation zone, which led to the sack of Mourinho.

By the time Guus Hiddink came, the damage had already been done and Chelsea ended up in 10th position.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has revealed that he’s making sure the team works hard to achieve another successful season and avoid the disaster of two seasons ago.

He said in his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday’s Community Shield showdown: “We all know what happened two seasons ago. It will be very important to avoid the bad season.

“For sure we have to work, to continue to work very hard and work harder, to improve and continue to improve.

“In the transfer window to improve our squad. It is normal to be a bit afraid for the bad season, it happened to Leicester. In Italy, there isn’t two without three and we must pay great attention.”
