Last season, the club from London finished 3rd place in the Premier League. After only one season, head coach Maurizio Sarri took off to Juventus. Ex Chelsea-player Frank Lampard is replacing him, and he is facing a tough job – not only did star players Eden Hazard and David Luiz leave the club, Chelsea was also banned by FIFA from registering new players. They were found guilty of breaking the rules regarding their dealings with underaged players. The Blues did manage to secure the transfer of Mateo Kovacic though, who was already registered as a Chelsea-player while on loan from Real Madrid. Now it's up to 18-year-old star player Callum Hudson-Odoi to stand up for Chelsea.
Chelsea have played all of their home matches at Stamford Bridge since 2005. Plans to build a new stadium are already there, but due to an 'unfavourable investment climate' they are on a hold. The current capacity of Stamford Bridge is 41,841; a lot less than Chelsea's equal competitors.
The club prices are very impressive:
Chelsea is the only London club to have won a Champions League title. They became the first English club ever to win all 4 big European trophies. Moreover, they are the only club to hold the Champions League and the Europa League at the same time.
