Chelsea's Biggest Victory in Premier League History

Chelsea has had some incredible results during their long and famous history, but what is the club's greatest triumph? We take a look back at some of Chelsea's most memorable victories in the Premier League era, with the Blues amassing some incredible totals along the way.

7. Manchester United 4-0 Chelsea.

In any season, thrashing your previous manager's new team 4-0 has to be near the top. Chelsea's 13-game winning streak was so impressive that season that defeating Jose Mourinho's Manchester United almost missed making our top eight. Chelsea made their intentions clear from the start at Stamford Bridge. Pedro scored the game's first goal in less a minute, and United's fortunes went south from there. They were absolutely dominated, unable to deal with the 3-4-3 formation that was taking hold. If victories against Sunderland and Crystal Palace showed us how determined this Chelsea team was, the manner in which they defeated United was a reminder of the talent Conte has at his disposal. This was a performance designed to instill confidence in their capacity to compete head-to-head with their opponents.

6. Chelsea defeated Manchester City 6-0 in an October 2007 match.

Manchester City were not the trophy-winning machine they have become in recent years. In truth, they were a long distance behind Chelsea, perhaps England's top team at the time. After Michael Essien opened the scoring, Didier Drogba scored twice before Joe Cole, Salomon Kalou, and Andriy Shevchenko completed a clinical effort by Chelsea, who went on to finish second in the league that season, two points behind Manchester United.

5. Chelsea defeated Arsenal 6-0 in March 2014.

Oscar (L), a Brazilian midfielder for Chelsea, scores his team's fifth goal during an English Premier League football match between Chelsea and Arsenal on March 22, 2014, at Stamford Bridge in London. Chelsea won by a score of 6-0. Chelsea consolidated their Premier League lead with a thumping of Arsenal, claiming their largest ever win over the Gunners in Arsene Wenger's 1000th game in command. Oscar netted twice, with Samuel Eto'o, Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard, and Mohamed Salah also scoring. Kieran Gibbs was sent off early in the first half after being mistaken for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Manchester City would go on to win the Premier League that season, finishing four points ahead of Chelsea.

4. Manchester City 1-3 Chelsea

Chelsea were put to the test against Manchester City, just as they were against Tottenham Hotspur a week before. Because of Chelsea's reaction to going down a goal at the Etihad Stadium, this game goes to Spurs. Chelsea not only forced their way back into the title race, but they did so with a lot of talent. Chelsea grabbed control in the second half after being outplayed for many periods before the break. They were more physical than City, and although riding their luck at times, they played better football to win 3-1. Willian and Hazard's goals were counter-attacking masterclasses, but Costa's equalizer was all about his goal-scoring nous. It oozed elegance from Cesc Fabregas' stunning through pass through his execution. This was a champion-worthy performance on the road.

3. Everton 5-0 Chelsea.

Some have termed this one of the best performances by any team in the Premier League era, and Conte's side's 5-0 victory over Everton was without a doubt the best we've seen from them so far. The Blues were brilliant in attack, and Everton manager Ronald Koeman admitted that he had never seen a team as vicious as Chelsea's 3-4-3 formation. Conte's men annihilated the opponents. It was fantastic. Hazard was the standout performer, terrorizing the Everton defense. As he drifted from flank to flank, taking up threatening positions to really punish the Toffees, they weren't sure how to deal with him. Chelsea had it all, combining physicality with just the right amount of talent in vital places. However, it isn't at the top of our list for a good reason: Everton enabled Chelsea to play in this manner, and as good as they were, it made things easier for them against Koeman's team.

2. Chelsea 8-0 Wigan Athletic.

Chelsea won the Premier League 8–0 over Wigan Athletic on May 9, 2010. After defeating Wigan Athletic 8-0 on the final day of the season, the Blues were crowned Premier League champions. That season, Carlo Ancelotti's Chelsea team set a new Premier League record by scoring 103 goals in a single season. Didier Drogba was on fire that day, scoring a hat trick and winning the Golden Boot with 29 goals for the season

1. Aston Villa 8-0 Chelsea - December 2012

Chelsea's 8-0 triumph over Aston Villa at the Bridge equaled the club's largest win in history as Rafael Benitez's side climbed up to third place in the rankings. Fernando Torres scored twice, while David Luiz, Branislav Ivanovic, Oscar, Hazard, and Lampard also scored to hand Villans their biggest Premier League defeat. Chelsea remained in third place until the end of the season, finishing 14 points behind United, who clinched yet another trophy.
