Chelsea have played in the top division of English football since 1989/90, and have always played in the top two divisions of English football. Chelsea have won the Premier League five times. Only Manchester Utd have won it more often.

  • Stadium: Stamford Bridge  
  • Stadium Capacity: 41,631
  • Location: West London
  • Founded: 1905
  • Nickname: The Blues
  • Manager: Maurizio Sarri
  • Kit: Dark blue shirts and shorts with white socks 

Chelsea was formed in 1905 but the Blues most successful era has been the last twenty years. Chelsea are the only London club to have won the Champions League. Some famous Chelsea fans include: Emma Watson, Will Ferrell, Michael Caine and Ed Sheeran. Here are some of the highlights:

  • League Champions: 6 times
  • FA Cup Winners: 8 times
  • League Cup Winners: 5 times
  • Champions League Winners: 2011/12
  • UEFA Europa League: Winners in 2012/13
  • Premier League best finish: Winners in 2004/5, 2005/06, 2009/10, 2011/12 & 2016/17 

Chelsea won the Premier League in 2016/17.

The Manager

Maurizio Sarri took over from Antonio Conte his fellow Italian, in July 2018. The 2018/19 season will be Sarri’s first n the Premier League. Sarri worked as a banker until he was 40 years old before taking up coaching full-time. He has managed 12 different clubs in Italy and had the most success with Napoli. Napoli finished in third in 2016/17 and second in 2017/18 with Sarri in charge. Chelsea will be Sarri’s first job away from Italy but he will have someone to help him at Chelsea. Gianfranco Zola, who played 229 times for Chelsea, will be Sarri’s assistant at Stamford Bridge.

Maurizio Sarri and Jorginho were together at Napoli.

Three to Watch

Here are three Chelsea players to keep an eye on in the Premier League this season:

Eden Hazard

Hazard has been one of the best Premier League players of his generation. Since his arrival at Chelsea in 2012, Hazard has won the Premier League twice and been named Premier League player of the season. If Chelsea keep hold of Hazard, the Blues will have one of the world’s most creative talents in their starting line-up.

Jorginho

Chelsea paid Napoli over £50 million for Jorginho in July 2018. The midfielder was born in Brazil but plays for the Italian national team. He has arrived in London at the same time as the former-Napoli manager, Maurizio Sarri. Jorginho usually plays as a creative midfielder and has a similar style to Cesc Fabregas. 

Thibaut Courtois

Courtois joined Chelsea in 2011 and is now recognised as one of the world’s best goalkeepers. He won the Golden Glove for Belgium at the World Cup in Russia and has won the Premier League twice with Chelsea. 

Thibaut Courtois is one of the best goalkeepers in the world

Last season

Chelsea finished fifth in the Premier League last season and failed to qualify for the Champions League. It was a disappointing season for the team that had won the Premier League in 2016/17. This prompted a change in manager with ex-Napoli manager, Maurizio Sarri, arriving in the summer. Chelsea’s top scorer was Eden Hazard with 12 Premier League goals.

Chelsea's N'Golo Kante is a World Cup winner with France.

Prediction 2018/19: 3rd

Chelsea will be looking to break back into the top four and to claim Champions League football this season. If Chelsea can hold on to players such as Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois they should have a good season under their new manager. If that doesn’t happen then a top four place may be out of reach.

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 .

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.

Thanks for the correction, I solved this quiz again and now I see that everything is all right.
I just started, I hope even better position for Serbia on the leaderboard ;)
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'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.
