Chelsea have already started their new season with a great three-win opening to the English Premier League campaign.
Fernando Torres and Eden Hazard have played like men possessed and already look to be the newest deadly duo in Chelsea Blue.

The English FA Cup and Capital One Cup ties have not yet been drawn, so excluding those possible monkey wrenches in planning here are the Blues' biggest matches between now and December 25th, 2012.
