Chelsea finished 12th in the Premier League last term, and for the first time since 2016/17, the team goes into the season with no European matches on the calendar. While this may hurt the Blues’ ego, it can still be a good opportunity for new manager Mauricio Pochettino to focus on building a proper team at Stamford Bridge without the pressure of having to play twice a week. 

Winning any kind of silverware in his first season would be considered great success for Pochettino, but judging by the Chelsea trophy odds, the bookmakers are not that confident about such an outcome.

List of Chelsea Trophy Odds

By the look of Chelsea trophy betting odds, the Blues are expected to stand a higher chance in the cups rather than the league. However, it is also likely that the team goes trophyless.

Premier League

The Blues have not won the Premier League since the 2016/17 season under Antonio Conte, and the Chelsea trophy odds understandably do not put them among the favourites for the title this year. The club has to first worry about setting up a recognizable playing style, and with all the squad changes going on at Stamford Bridge (7 ins and 13 outs this summer), it will take the manager a long time to achieve it.

Pochettino knows the Premier League well, having coached in England for six years. The Argentine still never managed to win the title, and his best achievement is a second-place finish with Tottenham Hotspur in the 2016/17 season. However, his Spurs side regularly finished inside the top four, and the 2.25 odds on Chelsea to return to the Champions League spots do not look shabby at all.

FA Cup

Chelsea’s most recent big trophy is the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League under Thomas Tuchel. But if we are talking strictly about domestic competitions, then it would have to be the 2017/18 FA Cup. 

Chelsea are no strangers to the FA Cup, having won England's oldest official tournament eight times in their history and finishing up as runner-ups on another eight occasions. Their last final came in 2022, but it was Liverpool who lifted the trophy after winning the game on penalties.

Last season, the Blues had a terrible showing in the FA Cup, being eliminated in their first match in the competition. However, we do have to mention that they went down to eventual cup winners Manchester City. This term around, Pochettino will have to hope for more luck with the draw if he is to advance further in the tournament, but, at the same time, he will also have more time to prepare for these games.

English League Cup

And speaking about luck, Chelsea are certainly not not the gods’ chosen ones when it comes to the English League Cup. The Blues have made the final nine times but ended up as winners on five occasions only; the last time it was back in 2014/15. Their two recent finals, in 2019 and 2022, did not end in their favour. And if we are talking about last season, Chelsea were again eliminated by Man City in the third round. 

However, the fans can count on a better run in the competition in the 2023/24 season. The opening rounds take place in November-December, when the big Premier League teams are also playing in Europe. Chelsea, on the other hand, will have their team rested and well-prepared for these games, and even in case of a bad draw, they can field a team of all starters against a rotated Man City, Arsenal or what have you.

No Trophies

The 2023/24 season will be the second one since the arrival of new owner Todd Boehly. The owners would typically expect short-term success at such a big club as Chelsea, but the Blues are in a different position at the moment. 

The 2022/23 season can be considered a write-off due to the major squad changes and the Graham Potter mishire. Pochettino is starting a new project, he has a squad full of young and promising players, and the Argentinian gaffer should be confident about keeping his job without going trophyless as long as he performs decently in the league. Boehly aims at long-term success, it seems.

The bookies give 1.20 odds on Chelsea to end the season trophyless and 4.00 on them winning at least one of the mentioned trophies. Bringing home silverware would be a big statement from Pochettino – especially since he never won anything in England – but there is no such pressure on him in his first season at Stamford Bridge.
