Time at Club:
Chelsea are managed by Frank Lampard who replaced their Europa League winning manager Maurizio Sarri in July 2019 after the later left for Juventus.
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.
Numerous draws but few defeats has seen Chelsea enjoy a strong run of results. Defeats against Kawasaki Frontale are the only black marks on a run that has seen them amass wins against Arsenal, New England Revolution, Watford & Slavia Praha while sharing the spoils versus Leicester City, Eintracht Frankfurt, Eintracht Frankfurt, Manchester United & Burnley
