Managed by José Mourinho during his first season at the club, Chelsea won the Premier League title (their first league title in 50 years) and the League Cup. The season was also notable for the number of records set during the season: Fewest goals against in a Premier League season (15), most clean sheets kept in a season (25), most wins in a season (29), most consecutive away wins (9), and the most points in a season (95).
After missing out on the league title to the unbeaten Arsenal the previous season, Chelsea continued spending large sums of money in order to build a squad capable of challenging for honours. They were in their second season under the ownership of Roman Abramovich, enabling them to sign five players for more than £10 million each, including Ivorian striker Didier Drogba from France's Olympique de Marseille and Portuguese defender Ricardo Carvalho from Mourinho's former club Porto. Portuguese defender Paulo Ferreira also followed Mourinho to Chelsea.
In the Champions League, Chelsea aimed to improve upon their semi-final placing the previous year, but in the end only matched their achievement thanks to a goal from eventual winners Liverpool's Luis García. They also exited the FA Cup in the fifth round to eventual semi-finalists Newcastle United.
