Since the English football league broke away from the first division in 1992, Chelsea have proven to be one of the strongest clubs especially since the arrival of Roman Abramovich in 2003. In the past twenty nine (29) seasons, the club has played against forty eight (48) different teams in the top flight winning almost six hundred games, scored one thousand nine hundred and three (1903) goals and accumulated over two thousand points.
However, in all the forty eight (48) clubs that the Blues have faced, one proved to be too stubborn for them to defeat and thus remain the only team that they are yet to beat in the Premier league.
In view of the above, check out the only club that Chelsea have never defeated in the history of the Premier league;
Oldham Athletic is an English Football club currently playing in League two (The fourth tier of the English football league system). Since the inception of the Premier league in 1992, Chelsea have faced the Lactics on four different occasions, losing three times with the other being a draw.
See statistics below;
1- Chelsea 1 vs 1 Oldham Athletic (15th August 1992)
2- Oldham Athletic 3 vs 1 Chelsea (6th February 1993)
3- Chelsea 0 vs 1 Oldham Athletic (30th October 1993)
4- Oldham Athletic 2 vs 1 Chelsea (12th February 1994)
At the end of the 1993-94 season, Oldham Athletic finished 21st in the Premier league and as such were relegated that campaign. Till date, they have been unable to earn promotion back to the top flight and since the currently operate in League two, the possibility of Chelsea rewriting the aforedescribed statistics is very slim. But this is football where anything is possible and perhaps someday Chelsea will meet Oldham Athletic in again.
What do you think will happen if the Blues manages to face the Lactics in the future?
