Chelsea have won six top-flight titles. Uppon winning the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League, Chelsea became the first English club to win all four European trophies and the only club to hold the Champions League and the Europa League at the same time.[1] The club's record appearance maker is Ron Harris, who made 795 appearances between 1961 and 1980. Frank Lampard is Chelsea's record goalscorer, scoring 211 goals in total.

Honours and achievements[edit]

In 2012, Chelsea became the fifth English team to win the UEFA Champions League.

Chelsea's first ever silverware was obtained in the 1915–16 season, when the team won the inaugural London Combination, which was originally established as a regional league for London clubs after first-class competition had been suspended due to World War I. The first major trophy came in 1955, when Chelsea became the national champions.[2] In the 2009–10 season, Chelsea won their first and only double after winning both the Premier League and the FA Cup.[3] Upon winning the 2012–13 UEFA Europa League, Chelsea became the fourth club in history to have won the "European Treble" of European Cup/UEFA Champions League, European Cup Winners' Cup/UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, and UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League.[4] In the 2016–17 season, Chelsea broke the record for most Premier League wins during the season after winning 30 games.[5]
