How many times have Chelsea won the Premier League?

Founded in 1905, Chelsea would have to wait 50 years for both their first and second league title wins before Roman Abramovich’s arrival ushered in an era of unprecedented success.

Following a 19-year period during which almost every season would end in silverware, it is almost impossible to imagine the Blues not being at the very top of the game.

However, success was far harder to come by for Chelsea in years gone by. They were a yo-yo club in the early years of their existence, nearly men in the 60s and FA Cup winners in 1970 before a financial crisis and even suffering relegation to the Second Division.

The late 80s would eventually bring a change of fortunes on and off the pitch, and Chelsea took great strides forward midway through the 90s under player-manager Ruud Gullit.

But it was when Abramovich bought the club for £140m in 2003 that things changed entirely, with Jose Mourinho named manager a year later.
