Chelsea FC became prominent as one of the top-flight clubs in the English league and Europe in early 2000. Thanks to the current owner, Roman Abramovich who bought the club in the year 2003, and also invested in the club with huge amount of money. So far, the Russian has expended at least two billion pounds (£2b) on the club, which has yielded good results to the club.
Since 2003 that Roman Abramovich took over Chelsea FC, the club has won twenty (20) trophies which include five (5) each of English Premier League titles and FA Cup, two (2) each of UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, and Community Shield, three (3) English Football League (EFL) Cup, one (1) UEFA Super Cup.
Though Chelsea FC currently remains one of the top-flight clubs in the English league and Europe, it has both before and amid these achievements suffered the heaviest defeats of its life. Though, only three (3) clubs have defeated the Blues with at least seven (7) goals in a match. They include
1. Wolverhampton Wanderers
Wolverhampton Wanderers was a giant of English football between 1950’s and1970's and this led to the club winning the English League in the 1953/54 season and as well competed in Europe. On September 26, 1953, Chelsea FC suffers its biggest and club-record defeat in the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Blues lost 1-8 goals at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the First Division. What a game!
2. Leeds United
Chelsea FC was helpless on October 6, 1967, as the club was again defeated by Leeds United by a scoreline of 7-0 goals. The goal scorers include Albert Johanneson, Jimmy Greenhoff, Jack Chalton, Peter Lorimer, Eddie Gray, Marvin Hinton (own goal) and Billy Bremner.
Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United are the clubs to have defeated Chelsea FC with a least seven (7) goals in a match. But the Blues fans will not forget the humiliation Bayern Munich brought to the club on August 8, 2020, in a two-legged game in which the Blues was defeated by a 7-1 goals aggregate in the UEFA Champions League Round 16 stage.
