Fans Have Voted On Who Chelsea's Greatest Ever Player Is

Frank Lampard has been named as Chelsea's greatest ever player, seeing off competition from John Terry, Didier Drogba, Eden Hazard and Gianfranco Zola.

The vote on Ranker was close between Lampard and Drogba, a deadly double act for many years at Stamford Bridge, but it was the former who came out on top in the fan poll.


84,000 users had their say and ultimately crowned Lampard as the winner, at the time of writing.

The former Blues midfielder is Chelsea's all-time record goalscorer with 211 goals, while he also won three Premier League titles in a glittering stint in West London.

He went on to manage the club and guide them into the Champions League last term, but was sacked and replaced by Thomas Tuchel mid-season after a poor run of results in 2020/21.

Hazard, who played against Chelsea for the first time in Tuesday's Champions League semi-final, is in fourth spot - one ahead of legendary skipper Terry.

N'Golo Kante being rated one place higher than fellow French midfield destroyer Claude Makelele is a controversial call, as is William getting in at 22.

Arjen Robben, who is perhaps more synonymous with Bayern Munich, is the final member of the top 30.

Here is the list in full:
