Chelsea club badge

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. Since 1996, they have won 4 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 new 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 will be 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 should not be a problem. Chelsea's goalkeeper, Asmir Begovic, has already 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's new manager. 

In 2015/16, Chelsea, as reigning Champions, were expected to fight for the title again but they had a disastrous start to the season. They lost nine of their first sixteen matches and were only one point above the relegation zone when Jose Mourinho was sacked. He was replaced by Guus Hiddink until the end of the season. Chelsea eventually finished tenth and failed to qualify for European football. ‘The Blues’ top scorer was Spanish international Diego Costa with 12 goals. With players like Eden Hazard, Costa, Willian and Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea should have a much better season this year. Can they win the Premier League again this season?

Prediction 2016/17: 3rd

Key player: Willian

Did you know...?

On the 26th of December 1999, Chelsea became the first Premier League team to select a team with no British players.

I've been been in love with Chelsea ever since I've started watching the beautiful Game. You can even call me obsessed with this amazing football club. Frank Lampard was the reason for why I started supporting Chelsea and now when he's gone, I was devastated. But Premier league goes on so I guess its fine since one day it was bound to happen. The next season, I have huge expectations. We can probably win the treble. Thank You, Chelsea Fan.

I think it is the sixth question wrong because none of the offered teams has not been before Chelsea on the league table in the 2012/13 season.
Only Manchester United and Manchester City had more points than Chelsea in the 2012/13 season.

Since I start learning on the site B.P.S, I found that the topics are very interesting and help us in a fun way to learn English and for that I am very grateful.
Just to mention that Chelsea have two very good players from Serbia: Nemanja Matic (midfielder) and Branislav Ivanovic (defender).

Thanks for the positive comments Rema. Matic is playing very well at the moment and Ivanovic has been one of the best full backs in the Premier League for a few seasons now. Maybe we can do an article on one of them in the future? Kolarov at Man City is also an excellent full back and he takes a great free kick!

I loved Chelsea because Zola was playing in it in 1995 , and after that I loved it much when Jose Mourinho came .
I dislike the defensive play of Chelsea , I'd like to see them as they were in 2005.
I hope they win the champions league this season .

Currently the lads must do their best , there are many players aren't in their best performance especially Hazard , really don't know what's the problem with him .

The defenders are the cause of the most goals conceded , I think Terry , Cahil and Ivanovic should be replacement with younger .

Jose said he warned the board of the issue he could face this season before it started , he asked for buying new players , and the board believe that the current players are enough because they are the same who won the last title , but this is not true , because last season all competitors weren't good to compete .

Obviously I see all Chelsea fans support Jose and want him in charge , we don't want him to ba sacked , even if he didn't win any titles this season , he should be given a chance for the next season.
