Stadium Stamford Bridge
Time at Club:
Chelsea are managed by Antonio Conte who is the 10th manager to work under Roman Abramovich. On 13 October some bookmakers unexpectedly suspended the betting on the Italian becoming the next Premier League manager to be sacked, however Chelsea have since confirmed that this will no be the case.
Chelsea have enjoyed some of the most fruitful years in their history since Abramovich took over the club in 2003. The Blues have significantly bolsted their trophy cabinet under the Russian billionaire, winning multiple league titles, FA Cups, League Cups, as well as the prized Champions League.
Abramovich has built a reputation as a ruthless operator who isn't afraid to send a manager packing if he feels results have been below average, which is something Conte likely to find out if he gets off to a slow start at the Bridge.
Chelsea have been managed by some of the world's top gaffers in recent years, none more so than Jose Mourinho who has had two spells in charge of his beloved Blue, winning numerous cups. However, it was Roberto Di Matteo who created history in 2012 after mirculously leading the London outfit to Champions League glory for the first time in their history.
Enjoying a rich vein of form, Chelsea's unbeaten run over the last 10 games has seen them only fail to collect the win against Burnley and Liverpool, scoring 21 and conceding 5 (average: 2.1/0.5) over that period, giving them a 16 goal difference.
