Chelsea have enjoyed immense success in the past two decades since Roman Abramovich bought the club. 

The London club remains the most successful club since the Russian bought the club, and thanks to his fat wallet, the Blues have always managed to sign some of the top talents the game has to offer.

Marcos Alonso recently joined an elite club of players when he played in last week’s Champions League clash against Lille.

It was the defender’s 200th match in a blue shirt and in the process joined the list of 25 other players from overseas to hit that number for the club.
