Life could not be any better for a Chelsea fan at present.
Flying high in both the Premier League and Champions League, Roberto di Matteo's side are looking increasingly immense, slowly but surely erasing any doubts some might have had regarding their pedigree before the season had begun.
This past month the Blues have picked up seven points from a possible nine in the league, whilst also excelling in both the Capital One Cup and in Europe.
Here are the team's five best players from September.
PSG boss (and former Chelsea manager) Carlo Ancelotti reckons Ashley Cole is the best left-back on the planet (via Goal.com).
Going on his performances for the Blues last month, you'd be hard-pressed to disagree with the Italian's sentiment.
A steady, always reliable constant in the team, Cole scored the vital winner in a recent Premier League clash with Stoke City.
Roman Abramovich will certainly be hoping that the English defender plays out the rest of his career in West London.
Nobody in the Chelsea lineup has shown more improvement this season than John Obi Mikel.
The holding midfielder has been excellent so far in the underappreciated role—di Matteo having placed more trust in the Nigerian than previous managers at the club have done.
If Chelsea's current run of form is to continue, so must that of Mikel; otherwise the team's attacking players will struggle without his domineering influence behind them.
The strength of character he showed in quickly bouncing back from his costly error against Juventus also deserves special mention.
There is no player in world football better at overcoming adversity than John Terry.
The English centre-back has had a torrid time off the pitch—having to deal with racism allegations carried over from last season, and a slew of tabloid slander.
But on the pitch he's been a rock—a captain who truly inspires his team by example.
With his retirement from international football, England's loss is Chelsea's gain.
If he's had shaky moments in the past, fear no more Chelsea fans, the Petr Cech of old is well and truly back.
He has made some stunning saves this past month, displaying fine reflexes that haven't seemed to diminish with age.
The Blues kept three clean sheets in September. Without the Czech keeper between the sticks, their goal difference would be nowhere near as impressive.
If his excellent performance against Nordsjaelland Tuesday night is anything to go by, October should prove an equally fruitful month for Cech.
If August was the month of Eden Hazard's emergence, then September surely belonged to Juan Mata.
Chelsea's attacking midfielder is back to his influential best—dictating the flow of the Blues' attack with an easy assurance to contrast the direct explosiveness of Hazard.
The Spaniard set up Torres's opener and scored the second himself in the win over Arsenal last weekend, contending with the striker for the game's man of the match award.
With such a wealth of attacking options in midfield, it is little wonder that players like Daniel Sturridge and Victor Moses struggle for playing time.
Who do you think was the Blues' best player in September?
