{Opinion}How Chelsea Has Truly Dominated The World Of Football In 2021

Since Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as the club's head coach in January, this year has been a year to remember for Chelsea, as things have gotten better with each game they play.

It's no secret that the German tactician has had a significant impact on Chelsea's development, how they play, and how they've evolved into a very difficult team to play against.

He guided them to a top-four finish and a Champions League title last season. This season, the club has remained motivated as they have maintained their remarkable success, winning the UEFA Super Cup and finishing first in the Premier League table.

Since the last 11 months, Chelsea has dominated every element of the game.

So, in this piece, we'll look at how Chelsea has genuinely ruled football in the year 2021.

1. Trophies Chelsea was a dominant force in last season's Champions League campaign, keeping the most clean sheets in the competition and conceding the fewest goals.

Last season, they defeated European giants such as Atletico Madrid, FC Porto, Real Madrid, and Manchester City on their way to winning Europe's most important trophy.

They didn't stop after winning the Champions League; they went on to win another European trophy earlier this season, after defeating Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup finals.

2. Awards In 2021, Chelsea's men and female players and managers topped all European award nominations.

Jorginho was named UEFA player of the year, Ngolo Kante was named UEFA midfielder of the year, Edouard Mendy was named UEFA best goalkeeper, and Thomas Tuchel was named UEFA best coach this season.

This year, five Chelsea male players and five Chelsea female players were nominated for the Ballon D'or award, making Chelsea the club with the most players on the shortlist of any European team. The Yashin Trophy was also nominated for Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea players and managers also dominated the list of FIFA award nominees just revealed.

Magdalena Eriksson, Pernille Harder, Hi Soyun, and Sam Kerr, all Chelsea female players, have been nominated for the FIFA Women's Player of the Year award. Jorginho and Ngolo Kante, a midfield duo, have been nominated for the FIFA Male Player of the Year award.

Chelsea's male and female first-team coaches, Thomas Tuchel and Emma Hayes, were both nominated for the FIFA best coach award, while Chelsea's female and male first-team goalkeepers were both nominated for the FIFA best goalkeeper award.

This year, Chelsea players have dominated all award nominations, and they are likely to win a huge number of them.
