With only 11 short days to go until Chelsea opens up their 2013-14 English Premier League season against Hull City, expectations in West London have never been higher for the Blues. 

New boss Jose Mourinho has returned to Stamford Bridge to lead Chelsea for a second time, and with the Chelsea squad full of youth and talent, the Blues will look to gather their first premier league title since 2010. 

However, before we can look forward, we must analyze how Chelsea looks thus far under Mourinho this season. 

After a tour of Asia, featuring trips to Bangkok, Malaysia and Indonesia, the Blues made a trip across the Atlantic to participate in the International Champions Cup in the United States.

Read on for a recap of the Blues' three games in the States, and my analysis of the London club's performances for all three matches.
