Featured Player
Ramires.jpg
Ramires is a Brazilian international midfielder who signed for Chelsea from Benfica in 2010. A "box-to-box" midfielder, Ramires has been known for his stamina since the beginning of his career in Brazil, pairing defensive ability with incisive forward runs. He has also been employed on the right side of midfield at Chelsea.

In 2012 he was voted Players' Player of the Year by his team-mates, having been one of the outstanding players of Chelsea's ultimately highly successful 2011-12 season, contributing 12 goals. These included a perfectly judged lob against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League semi-final 2nd leg, and the opening goal in the 2012 FA Cup final. (more...)

Featured Former Player
G Hilsdon.jpg
George Hilsdon (10 August 1885 - 10 September 1941) was an English international centre forward who played for Chelsea between 1906 and 1912. He was nicknamed "Gatling-Gun" due to his powerful shots.

Hilsdon was the first Chelsea player to represent England, the first Chelsea player to score 100 goals for the club, and was top scorer for three consecutive seasons following his arrival in west London from West Ham United.

He also holds the club record for number of goals in one game, with six in a 9-1 win against Worksop Town in 1908. He remains Chelsea's ninth top goalscorer of all time. (more...)

Next Opponent
Bolton Wanderers FC.png
Bolton Wanderers Football Club is a professional football club based in the town of Horwich in the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton, Greater Manchester. The club was founded by the Reverend John Farrall Wright in 1874 as Christ Church FC, but changed its name to Bolton Wanderers in 1877. Founder members of the Football League, Bolton were a successful cup side in the 1920s, winning the FA Cup three times. The club won the cup a fourth time in 1958 thanks to two Nat Lofthouse goals.

Chelsea have had several memorable matches against Bolton. These include an epic 1978 encounter in which the Blues overturned a 3-0 deficit to win 4-3; a relegation decider in 1983 where a late Clive Walker strike helped Chelsea narrowly avert relegation to the Third Division and probable financial oblivion; and in 2005, where two Frank Lampard goals clinched Chelsea's first league title for fifty years.

Featured Match
19971206.jpg
Tottenham Hotspur 1-6 Chelsea was the 17th league match of the 1997-98 season. An emphatic second half performance saw Ruud Gullit's Chelsea clinch their biggest ever win over their rivals. The Blues were only the second visiting team to score six goals at White Hart Lane and extended the club's unbeaten run against Spurs to 17 matches.

Goals from Tore André Flo and Ramon Vega had left the teams level at half-time, but Chelsea took command early in the second. Roberto Di Matteo put the Blues back in front, Dan Petrescu extended the lead with a lob over Walker, Flo's emphatic strike finished off a neat one-two with Gianfranco Zola and Mark Nicholls added a fifth before Flo completed his hat-trick in stoppage time.
