Can you name Chelsea’s Xl from the first game of the Abramovich era?


On August 17, 2003, Chelsea kicked off a new era by playing their first Premier League game under the ownership of Roman Abramovich. 

The Blues faced Gerard Houllier’s Liverpool at Anfield on the opening day of the 2003-04 season and took the lead after just 25 minutes.

Liverpool looked to have snatched a point thanks to Michael Owen’s penalty before substitute Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink scored a dramatic late winner for the away side.

Chelsea went on to finish second in the league at the end of the season, but we’re asking you to name their Xl from that win over Liverpool.

If this puts you in the mood for another challenge, why not try naming every Chelsea manager in Premier League history?
