Can Any Premier League Team Replicate What Chelsea FC Squad Did In The 2005/06 Season?

Chelsea are unbeaten at the moment, thanks to a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Thomas Tuchel has built a team that no other club wants to play against, much like Jose Mourinho did during his first stint at Chelsea. With Chelsea's 2005/06 squad, the Portuguese manager not only won the Premier League but also set numerous records. Despite the fact that Manchester United dominated the Premier League in the early 2000s, they were unable to replicate what Chelsea's side did in the 2005/06 season.

The Blues are the only side in Premier League history to have won nine consecutive games, scoring 23 goals in the first nine games of a season. They only allowed three goals in their first nine games that season, courtesy to retired Chelsea defenders such as Del Horno, Terry, Carvalho, Bridge, Gallas, Huth, Geremi, and Ferreira. This record demonstrated that Chelsea has one of the finest defensive strongholds in Europe's top five leagues. These defenders, along with Petr Cech, helped the team earn six clean sheets in the first nine games of the 2005/06 season.

Liverpool and Manchester City are the current two Premier League teams capable of replicating what Chelsea did in the 2005/06 season. These two teams have dominated the Premier League over the past five years. Pep Guardiola's team, whose 15-game unbeaten streak was recently broken by Tottenham Hotspur, has what it takes to break this record. Manchester City currently features one of the best defenses and offenses in the Premier League. Though they don't usually begin the season with a perfect record in their first nine games, they have the ability to replicate what Chelsea did in 2005/06.

However, Liverpool's current lineup consists of the best attacking players in the Premier League, and they might easily beat the record of 23 goals in nine consecutive wins at the start of the season. The trio of Mane, Jota, and Salah is the greatest in the 2021/22 Premier League season and has the ability to replicate what Chelsea did in 2005/06. Liverpool also has one of the finest defenses in the Premier League, and either the Merseyside reds or the sky blues might soon match Chelsea's record.
