It is time for another Best XI piece, as we are naming Chelsea’s best players in each position in the 21st century.

Chelsea FC reached the very top of English and European football in the past two decades, becoming a real force since the start of the Roman Abramovic era.

The Russian billionaire bought the Blues back in July 2003 and it was thanks to his investments in many different areas of the club, that Chelsea is now a well-respected side in the football world.

They won the Premier League five times since then, reached their first Champions League final in 2008 (lost to Manchester United on penalties), but won the trophy four years later, beating Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
