Time at Club:
Chelsea are managed by Antonio Conte who is the 10th manager to work under Roman Abramovich. In his first season in English football the Italian led Chelsea to the league title, becoming the ninth manager to win the Premier League, and fourth of his countrymen.
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.
Chelsea have reaped 5 wins in the last 10 games, beating Huddersfield Town, Liverpool, Swansea City, Southampton & Burnley. 3 draws against Lyon, Arsenal & Huddersfield Town and defeats to Manchester City & Newcastle United has seen them score 11 at an average of 1.1 goals per game while shipping 8.
