'The Unstoppable Blue Arm' Chelsea's Greatest Starting XI Of All Times

Chelsea is among the best football clubs in the English Premier League. Currently, they are the holders of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Super Cup which they won under Thomas Tuchel. Over the years The blues have signed world-class players during the summer and January transfer windows.

Here is Chelsea's best starting lineup of all times.

Goalkeeper ( Peter Cech)

Cech played for Rennes before joining Chelsea in 2004. During his 11 years at Stamford Bridge, he helped Chelsea win Four Premier League titles, four Fa cups, One UEFA Europa trophy, and 3 league cups. In addition to that, he holds the club's clean sheets record, with 228 in just 494 appearances.

Center back ( Gary Cahill)

Cahill signed for Chelsea in 2012 from Bolton Wanderers and won the UEFA Champions League on his debut season. He later won two UEFA Europa League titles, 2 Fa Cup finals, and 1 league cup. Cahill was among the best center backs in the Premier League during his prime years.

Center back ( John Terry)

The former England star is probably the most successful captain Chelsea has ever had. He was named UEFA club defender of the year on several occasions. In addition to that, he is Chelsea's all-time highest-scoring defender. During his 19 years with the club, he won 5 Premier League titles, 3 league cups, 4 Fa Cups, and 1 UEFA Europa league cup, and one Champions League title.

Wing- backs

Ivanovic and Ashley Cole have not yet been outshined by the current players. These two were solid at the back and contribute more to the attack. However, they might end up being replaced by Reece James and Ben Chilwell in the future.

Defensive Midfielder( Kante)

The world cup winner joined Chelsea from Leicester City. Kante played a key role last season in helping the club win their second Champions League trophy. He has outplayed all other players who ever played in this position such as Claude Makelele.

Midfielders

Frank Lampard and Fabregas are still among the best midfielder the Premier League has ever seen. Lampard was well known for scoring goals from long ranges while Fabregas was regarded as King of assists during his prime years.

Attacking Midfielder

Eden Hazard will start ahead of all other attacking players at the club. The Belgian star was a threat to opponents when he had the ball during his time at Chelsea. He used this speed and dribbling skills to terrorize opponents.

Strikers

Drogba and Diego Costa will feature in this lineup ahead of Lukaku and Werner. These two stars used to score goals from all angles and were difficult to stop.
