Nickname: The Blues

Formed: 1905

Stadium: Stamford Bridge (41,837)

League titles: 4

FA Cup wins: 7

League Cup wins: 4

European Cup/Champions League wins: 1

Manager: Jose Mourinho

 

 

Chelsea were formed in 1905, and are actually based in nearby Fulham.

The side had to wait until 1955 for their first success, when they won the Football League.

The club had to wait yet again for more success, until they won the 1970 FA Cup and 1971 Cup Winners Cup.

The last 15 years have been the club’s most successful however, first under Ruud Gullit and then Gianluco Vialli, and then since Russian billionaire Roman Abromovich bought the club in 2003, under Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti.Chelsea News

The club won the Premier League in 2005, 2006 and 2010, and the FA Cup in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012.

Chelsea also reached the 2008 Champions League final, where they were beaten agonisingly on penalties by Manchester United.

The pain of that loss – and John Terry’s crucial miss from the spot – lingered, and perhaps still does.

However, the pain was made a little easier in 2012 when, against all the odds, Chelsea won the Champions League for the first time.

They beat Bayern Munich on their own turf in the final in a penalty shoot-out, with Didier Drogba proving to be their talisman and scoring the winning spot-kick with his last kick of a ball for the club.

That triumph was achieved under Roberto Di Matteo, who was harshly sacked last season despite looking to be in title contention at the time.

Rafael Benitez was an unpopular choice to replace him on an interim basis, but he did guide Chelsea to Champions League qualification and won the Europa League.

During the season, midfielder Frank Lampard became Chelsea’s record goalscorer, overtaking the legendary Bobby Tambling, who was a star for the Blues in the 60s.

Benitez’s relative success was not enough to help him keep the job on a permanent basis, with Mourinho returning to the Bridge after much speculation in the summer of 2013.

Now, with uncertainty among some of Chelsea’s title rivals, Mourinho will be looking to deliver the Premier League trophy yet again for the club he holds so close to his heart.
