Time at Club:
Chelsea are managed my Maurizio Sarri who is the 11th manager to work under Roman Abramovich.
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.
An unbeaten run of 7 wins versus BATE Borisov, Crystal Palace, Derby County, Burnley, BATE Borisov, Southampton & Videoton and 3 draws against Everton, Manchester United & Liverpool has seen Chelsea produce 21 goals at an average of 2.1 and conceding 7 has also seen them gain a 14 goal difference over this period.
