Chelsea won their first major title in 1955 after winning the English League Championship. The list of Chelsea FC records, honours and achievements is a long one including winning every major club competition possible.

The Blues went through a rough period in the 1970s and dropped down to the Second Division. Chelsea were bought by Ken Bates for £1 in 1982 with the club close to relegation to the Third Division. Their fortunes changed in July 2003 when Bates sold Chelsea to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich for £140 million. 

Abramovic invested heavily in the London club, buying top players and hiring Portuguese manager José Mourinho. Mourinho won back-to-back Premier League titles in 2004-05 and 2005-06, an FA Cup in 2007 and two League Cups in 2005 and 2007.

Much of Chelsea's success in that period was down to players such as Petr Cech, John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.
