Opinion: Six times Chelsea showed their ruthlessness in the Premier League

Chelsea is one of the biggest teams in England and has proved their worth and abilities over the years. The two-time champions of Europe have recorded some of the biggest wins ever recorded in the premier league as they have shown their ruthless side over the years too.

In this article, we will take a look at some of the biggest wins achieved by the London side.

6. Chelsea 6-0 Manchester City, 2007

Chelsea recorded an impressive win over Manchester City in, who were no where near the quality they are today more than ten years ago. Michael Essien opened the scoring for the Blues, while Didier Drogba got himself a brace, with further goals from Joe Cole, Solomon Kalou and Andriy Shevchenko completing the rout.

5. Chelsea 6-0 Westbromwich

Albion, 2010

In the opening day of the 2010/2011 season, the blues, who were starting their campaign as defending Champions announced they meant business in a 6-0 thrashing of Westbromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge. Drogba got himself a hat-trick, Florent Malouda a brace, while Lampard added the sixth.

4. Chelsea 6-0 Arsenal, 2014

In one of the most shocking scoreline in the premier league in 2014, Chelsea ruined Arsene Wenger's 1000th game in charge of Arsenal with a 6-0 thrashing of the Gunners in the London derby.

Goals from Oscar(2x), Samuel Eto'o, Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard and Mohammed Salah were enough to give Arsenal a horrible afternoon back in 2014.

3. Chelsea 7-0 Stoke City, 2010

Marching towards winning their third Premier League title, Chelsea needed to be rampant and ruthless which is what they did against Stoke City in 2010. A hat-trick from Solomon Kalou, a brace from Lampard and efforts from Daniel Sturbridge and Malouda was enough to embarrass Stoke.

2. Chelsea 8-0 Aston Villa, 2012

In probably the biggest win for Rafa Benitez in the Premier League, the Spaniard led the blues to a thumping victory over Aston Villa in December 2012.

Goals from Ramirez (2x), Torres, David Luiz, Ivanovic, Oscar, Hazard, and Lampard made sure the Blues handed the Villains their biggest ever defeat in the premier league.

1. Chelsea 8-0 Wigan, 2010

On the final day of the 2009/2010 season, the blues needed to win their game against Wigan to beat Manchester United to the title and they did just that in a ruthless fashion. Beating Wigan 8-0 at Stamford Bridge showed it was time for Manchester United to surrender their three year grip on the title.

Didier Drogba, as expected, got three goals, Anelka scored twice, while Lampard, Kalou and Ashley Cole completed the thrashing.

The blues would later go on to win the Premier League title, beating United by two points.
