Chelsea’s Saturday World Club Championship win means they won every trophy they entered under Roman Abramovich’s ownership.

With the exception of the Community Shield and the UEFA Super Cup, this is the sixth major trophy won since 2003 and the most awarded English club with a total of 18 trophies over time.

Here, the PA news agency examines their record and how they treat their rivals.

Abramovich’s trophy cabinet

The appointment of Jose Mourinho at the start of Abramovich’s reign introduced English football to the “Special One” and made Chelsea the leading trophy waiter immediately.

The Portuguese won the Premier League in their first two seasons, adding to the 2004-2005 League Cup, while Manchester United regained the championship title in 2006-2007 with Chelsea winning a domestic cup double.

They have since won three more titles in the debut season of Carlo Ancelotti and Antonio Conte, and another in Mourinho’s second spell.

The number of FA Cup victories in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2018 increased to five in the Abramovich era and the third League Cup victory in 2015.

The European success was followed by the 2012 Champions League victory and then the Europa League the following season, despite a period of managerial uncertainty. Subsequently, in 2019, they won the English final against Arsenal in the Europa League and Manchester City in last year’s Champions League, so Abramovich’s dearly put together team won doubles in every race.

Their latter success earned him the right to go to the club world championships, where they beat Palmeiras in Saturday’s final in Abu Dhabi.

The club received two Community Shields and a UEFA Super Cup under Abramovich. They have not yet played in the Europa League and it is hoped that this will remain the case.

The top of the heap
Chelsea’s 18 major trophies are three more than any English club has achieved since Abramovich bought the blues.

Manchester United and Manchester City have played five Blues championship titles during this time, with United in the upcoming 14 major trophies overall – including two FA Cups, four League Cups, the Champions League in 2008 and Europe in 2017. League and the club world championships, for which they were the first English winners back in 2008.

The City is 13 times behind its neighbors thanks to six League Cups and two FA Cups. They also lead in this year’s Premier League, but the continent’s success has so far avoided them under Pep Guardiola.

Arsenal and Liverpool each have six major trophies in the Abramovich era, with Liverpool winning the Champions League twice, while Arsenal winning the 2003-2004 championship unbeaten and winning five FA Cups since then.

Leicester won the 2015-2016 league title and the previous season’s FA Cup – beating Chelsea in the final – while Portsmouth and Wigan won the FA Cup and Middlesbrough, Tottenham, Birmingham and Swansea League Cup.
