Only one Chelsea player has just been named in the ultimate Premier League Team of the Decade

Must read

Chelsea have only had one player from the last 10 years named in the ultimate Premier League Team of the Decade.

According to WhoScored, only one Blue from that time period has been good to make the statistical side, despite the numerous titles won by the club.

Chelsea were Premier League winners under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte over the last decade, as well as picking up almost everything else there is to win domestically and on the continent.

Nevertheless, only Eden Hazard has been named as part of the team, with his performance in the 2014/15 season the one which helped him receive the accolade.

Hazard has always been an extremely popular figure at Stamford Bridge ever since he joined in 2012, with that not changing when he made the move to Real Madrid seven years later.

While his career never hit the same hights in Spain, his time in the Premier League sees him remembered as easily one of the best to ever do it.

Hazard named in team of the decade

There was a recent outpouring of admiration from those close to the club when the Belgian announced his retirement from the game, with injury issues refusing to leave him alone.


It seems as if his talents have not gone unnoticed as far as the stats are concerned, with him being named in a team of the decade for the Premier League.

The side will no doubt be under some scrutiny when looking at some of the names who have made it. This includes Lukasz Fabianski, Christian Fuchs and Nicolas Otamendi.

However, Hazard’s addition is certainly fair, and he may well should be joined by some other Blues from this time, including N’golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas and Cesar Azpilicueta.
