Premier League

See the only club Chelsea has never beaten in the history of the Premier League

Did you know that Chelsea has never defeated a team in a Premier League match?

Many people, particularly Chelsea supporters, might be surprised by this.

What is the team's name, though?

Let's have a look below:

Chelsea has played 48 different teams in the Premier League since its inception in 1992, and has won at least twice against each of them.

Oldham Athletic, on the other hand, remains an outlier.

The Blues have played the Latics four times in the past, losing three times and drawing once.

Over the course of these four games, they've given up seven goals and scored only three.

1. 1992/1993 Premier League season:

During the Premier League's inaugural season, Chelsea played Oldham Athletic for the first time.

After Nick Henry's goal (in the 86th minute) cancelled out Mick Harford's opening goal for Chelsea (in the 84th minute), the game ended in a 1-1 draw.

The Blues were defeated 3-1 by Oldham Athletic in the season's final match on February 6, 1993

Nick Henry (38 minutes), Neil Adams (61 minutes), and Mark Brennan all scored for Oldham to take a 3-0 lead (71 minutes).

Until Mick Harford scored a late goal for Chelsea.

Chelsea finished the season in 11th place, while Oldham Athletic finished 19th.

2. 1993/1994 Premier League season:

Both teams met again the next season, with Oldham inflicting even more pressure on Chelsea.

The Latics won both games against Chelsea. That is, they won both of their matches against Chelsea this season.

They shocked Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge before defeating the Blues 2-1 in the rematch.

Chelsea finished 14th, while Oldham finished 21st after being relegated the previous season.

Oldham has so far been unable to gain promotion back to the Premier League.

Chelsea actually plays in the second tier of English football, so the chances of them rewriting this statistic are slim.

In the future, however, something could happen.

What do you think will happen if Chelsea ever gets a chance to play Oldham again?
