Chelsea Football Club play at Stamford Bridge in south-west London. The stadium was built in 1877 and became home to Chelsea Football Club in 1905 when the club was founded. The stadium capacity is 41,798 which makes it the eighth largest in the Premier League. Chelsea wear blue shirts and shorts when they are at home and their nickname is the Blues. Their club badge has changed five times since the club was founded and today's crest has a blue lion holding a staff.

Eden Hazard is the Premier League Player of the Year.

Chelsea are one of the most successful football teams of the Premier League era and are the current Premier League Champions. Since 1996, they have won 5 Premier League titles, 6 FA Cups, 4 League Cups, the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Champions League. They haven't always been so successful. Before 1996, Chelsea had only won 1 League title and 3 cups. Since the Premier League was founded, only Manchester United have won more trophies than Chelsea. Chelsea won their first UEFA Champions League in 2012 when they beat Bayern Munich on penalties in Munich. This came four years after losing their first Champions League final to Manchester United... on penalties.

Chelsea's manager Antonio Conte is well-known for his success as a player and manager with the Italian club, Juventus. He won the Italian title five times as a player and three times as a manager with Juve. For the last two seasons, he was coach of the Italian national side.

“I think the best football is currently played in England followed by the leagues in Spain and Germany.” Antonio Conte

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte.

Conte's first task at Chelsea was to help the fans forget Jose Mourinho, who was Chelsea's most successful ever manager. With Mourinho as manager, Chelsea won the Premier League three times, most recently in 2014/15. Although Conte has never played or managed outside his native Italy in a 30-year career, communicating in English is not be a problem. Chelsea players have said that Conte speaks good English. Conte is well-known for his tactical knowledge and many comparisons have been made with the management style of Alex Ferguson and Chelsea's ex-manager, Jose Mourinho.

"I always compare my work to that of a tailor, who makes a suit out of the material that is available to him. He can only do what the material allows him to do".  Antonio Conte, Chelsea manager. 

In 2016/17, Chelsea won back the Premier League title they had lost the previous season. It was an amazing and surprising season for the Blues as they won the Premier League title for the fifth time. It was supposed to be a season of transition under Antonio Conte but they won the season in style, finishing 7 points clear at the top. Chelsea will be back in the Champions League this season so will have many more matches to play, which is something they didn't have last season. ‘The Blues’ top scorer was Spanish international Diego Costa with 22 goals. With players like Eden Hazard, N'Golo Kante, Willian and Cesc Fabregas the Champions have a great tema which has been made stronger by arrivals such as Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid and Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco. Can they win the Premier League again this season?

Prediction 2017/18: 2nd

Key player: Alvaro Morata

Did you know...?

On the 26th of December 1999, Chelsea became the first Premier League team to select a team with no British players. The team was: De Goey (Holland); Ferrer (Spain), Thome (Brazil), Leboeuf (France), Babayaro (Nigeria); Petrescu (Romania), Di Matteo (Italy), Deschamps (France), Ambrosetti (Italy); Poyet (Uruguay); Flo (Norway).

Welcome back, Abdallah!

Yes, a great season so far. Conte has definitely found a winning formula with three centre-backs. Of course, Diego Costa and Hazard have been great but for me the best player (because it's the biggest surprise) has been Victor Moses as wing-back. What do you think?

To be honest I'm not a fan of Chelsea. I don't follow them and I'm not interested in it's results. But when they play their excellent match I just admire.

I might agree with prediction but everything is possible. We don't know how a new manager will work with club and how the players accept the manager. Anyway I wish Chelsea fans be with their club!

A great season 2016/17 would be for Chelsea and his new manager. I predict them between top 5 Premier League teams. Hazard will be better this year and the manager will succeed in managing the best mildfielders along with Kante and Willian.

Good decision by the board to not renew for Terry , he's a legend , a good defender but not a real captain because he was absulotely negetive in the dressing room when most players betrayed Jose Mourinho. It's obviously what was happening by playing 9 games without lose with Gess .
