Chelsea is currently ranked amongst the best teams in European football with two UEFA Champions League titles, one UEFA Europa League, and two UEFA Super Cups.

Here are Chelsea’s all-time top scorers in history.

Frank Lampard is Chelsea’s all time top scorer in history, with 211 goals across all competitions. He played thirteen seasons at Chelsea, helping the club win the Premier League, FA Cup, FA Community Shield, EFL Cup, Champions League, and Europa League.

 

He’s one of the most creative and technically gifted box-to-box midfielders of his generation, leading Chelsea to domestic and European glory as captain.

 

Lampard is the only midfielder in the English Premier League with the most goals. He began his career at West Ham United.

His breakthrough at the club came one year later, and he was selected for the Premier League Player of the Month in September 2003.

 

In the 2004/05 Premier League season, Frank was involved in all of Chelsea’s Premier League games and scored 13 goals to help the club lift the title.

 

Finishing the season on high, Lampard quickly established himself as one of the most creative box-to-box midfielders of world football at the time.

In January 2007, Frank registered his first Chelsea hat-trick in an FA Cup third-round tie against Macclesfield Town.

In the 2009–10 Premier League season, Lampard scored 27 goals to help Chelsea lift the Premier League title and the FA Cup.

In his second season, he supercharged his team to a commanding victory over Arsenal in the FA Community Shield, scoring two goals.

 

Drogba’s consistency throughout the season helped Chelsea claim the English Premier League for two consecutive seasons.

 

For the 2007/08 season, he continued with his excellent scoring form, although he was hit by injuries at some point.

 

After consecutive seasons ended on a disappointing note, Drogba lifted the 2009–10 FA Community Shield by scoring during a shoot-out win over Manchester United.

 

After the victory over Man United, Drogba scored against Sunderland, Fulham, Stoke City, and Tottenham Hotspur, toned the season’s first two months with five goals.
