Throughout the long term, the number ten shirt has gotten a pined for number for innovative players.
While it may not be pretty much as holy as the number nine shirt has been at Chelsea as of late (here's taking a gander at you, Steve Sidwell, Khalid Boulahrouz), numerous fine players have worn the number ten shirt for the Blues.
In light of that, let us go on an outing through a world of fond memories and view a portion of Chelsea's most noteworthy to have worn the number ten.
Despite the fact that numerous inconsiderate football fans like to propose Chelsea FC's set of experiences started in 2003 after Roman Abramovich's takeover, they are tragically mixed up.
Chelsea were associated with quite possibly the most notable FA Cup finals in history in 1970, when they crushed Leeds United in a replay at Old Trafford. The actual replay is quite possibly the most infamous games at any point played in English football. The match was as of late returned to and 're-refereed', and the end was that six red cards and 20 yellow cards would have been distributed during the game by present day norms.

A possibly questionable pick considering Willian has just worn the number 10 shirt - he recently wore 22 for six seasons - throughout the previous seven months, however on the off chance that the colorful Brazilian is excluded, we may need to go down the Yossi Benayoun course.
In any case, while Willian is a polarizing figure among the Blues' help, there's no contesting his accreditations with the club. Two Premier League crowns, one FA Cup, one Carabao Cup and one Europa League title makes for very great perusing, with his work-rate and try generally liable for some of those triumphs.
One of Glenn Hoddle's first signings as Chelsea director, Gavin Peacock was purchased for £1.5m from Newcastle in 1993.
It was during the club's FA Cup run in the 1993/94 season that Peacock genuinely shone in a Chelsea shirt. He played altogether seven of the club's matches headed to the last, scoring against Barnet in a 4-0 replay triumph, one in each game as the Blues beat Sheffield Wednesday at the subsequent endeavor, the objective which saw off Wolves in the quarter-last and a support at Wembley as Chelsea beat Luton 2-0 in the semi-last.
Unfortunately, he was unable to rehash those heroics in the last, as Chelsea were tonked 4-0 by Manchester United.
David Speedie had a great five years at Chelsea, during which time he shaped a productive hit association with club legend Kerry Dixon.
Fun certainty - in 1986, Speedie turned into the main senior player since Sir Geoff Hurst in the 1966 World Cup last to score a cap stunt at Wembley, as Chelsea crushed Manchester City 5–4 in the Full Members Cup last.
The Scotsman scored 47 objectives for the Blues in 162 appearances, helping the club win the Second Division title in 1984, just as the previously mentioned Full Members Cup in 1986.
Chelsea marked the unbelievable Welsh forward in 1995 from Manchester United for £1m. In truth, Hughes' greatest days were likely behind him by that point, however that didn't stop him making his imprint at Chelsea as he appreciated some noteworthy minutes at Stamford Bridge.
Hughes put in a game dominating execution against Wimbledon in the 1997 FA Cup semi-last in transit to Chelsea winning the prize. Maybe considerably more significantly, Hughes scored the conclusive objective against Vicenza in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup semi-last in 1998, as Chelsea upset a two objective shortage in the tie. The Blues proceeded to win the prize subsequent to crushing Stuttgart in the last.
All things considered, Hughes won the FA Cup, League Cup and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup with the Blues during his three years at the club. He likewise won the Chelsea Player of the Year grant in 1996/97.
As we get down to the last couple of players of this rundown, we approach the individuals who can be viewed as obvious Chelsea legends. Furthermore, where preferred to begin once again Chelsea's number 10 on the best night in their set of experiences?
He may have just burned through more than two years at the club, however nobody can deny Juan Mata's place as one of Chelsea's most noteworthy ever players. He was the club's Player of the Year in both of his two full seasons (2011/12, 2012/13), showing that he was so critical aside.
As insinuated above, Mata is the solitary number 10 in Chelsea history to have won the European Cup with the club. The 2012 Chelsea group was a maturing one, and Mata was the one who gave the group innovativeness that was usually inadequate with regards to it. At the point when you recall that he was flanked by Ryan Bertrand and Salomon Kalou on the evening, you appreciate significantly more what he achieved. Indeed, his extra shot was saved yet that ought to be ignored all in all.
Oscar's appearance flagged an untimely finish to his time at the club, however a colossal gathering consistently anticipates him when he returns.
"He's here. He's there. He's each f***ing where. Joey Cole. Joey Cole."
Seemingly the most talented English footballer of the most recent twenty years, Joe Cole had the parcel - pizazz, imagination, vision, certainty.
Cole was one of the primary signings of the Roman insurgency, and wore the number 10 shirt for seven seasons. During his experience with the Blues, Cole won three Premier League titles, two FA Cups, a League Cup, and played in that doomed Champions League Final against Manchester United in 2008.
A genuinely great player to watch, Cole played 281 games for Chelsea, winning the club's Player of the Year grant during 2007/08.
The best player that has ever - or will ever - wear a Chelsea shirt. Indeed, during his initial two seasons at the club, Hazard played in the number 17 shirt. Be that as it may, if it's not too much trouble, we should not get hindered in the fine print. To be honest, Hazard could've worn the number 99 shirt for Chelsea he'd in any case be top of this, or some other, list.
Without a doubt, he might not have won however many decorations at the club as any semblance of John Terry, Didier Drogba or Frank Lampard. Every one of those men may in reality hold a more grounded guarantee to being greater Chelsea 'legends', however in case you're searching for the club's most prominent ever player - look no further.
Risk showed up in Chelsea blue, scoring 110 objectives, yet his splendor goes a long ways past his measurements. A really entrancing player, he had speed, pizazz, balance and unparalleled readiness, showing consistently what he could do on the huge stage.
As far as prizes, he did really well - scooping two Premier League titles, two Europa Leagues, one FA Cup and one Carabao Cup.
