Chelsea certainly boast an illustrious list when it comes to the subject of all-time top scorers.

Many iconic names have featured for the Blues across the years.

But only a select few have smashed a century of goals for the club.  

Here are the top ten marksmen in Chelsea’s history.

Frank Lampard (211)

Frank Lampard’s legacy will echo around Stamford Bridge until football ceases to exist (which nearly happened thanks to the Super League).

211 goals in 648 appearances cements him as Chelsea’s record goal scorer, surpassing Bobby Tambling’s tally in 2013.

Bobby Tambling (202)

Up until Lampard smashed home against Aston Villa, Tambling was the Blues highest goal getter for over 40 years.

He netted on his debut in 1959 and didn’t stop until he left to join Crystal Palace in 1970.

Kerry Dixon (193)

Coming in a close third is the legendary Kerry Dixon.

In his first season with Chelsea, he scored 34 goals and was swiftly up to 70 in 101 games with another fine haul the following year.

Didier Drogba (164)

A man who needs no introduction to the Blues faithful.

Didier Drogba arrived in 2004 from Marseille as a highly rated striker. He left South West London as one of the Premier League’s greatest ever forwards. Plus he scored that header in Munich…

Roy Bentley (150)

Very few players can manage one campaign as the club’s top scorer. Roy Bentley did it consecutively seven times after joining Chelsea in 1948.

Bentley sadly passed away in 2018, but memories of his footballing excellency will live on forever.

Peter Osgood (150)     

Tied with Bentley in fifth place is the oh so good Peter Osgood.

Another Chelsea great who tragically left us in 2006, a statue outside the Bridge was erected of Osgood for his iconic services to the team.

Jimmy Greaves (132)   

Here’s a stat for you. Jimmy Greaves scored 114 goals for the Blues youth side before becoming a senior pro.

Unfortunately, that didn’t count towards his final sum, which rests at 132.

George Mills (125)  

A special place in the heart of Chelsea fans will always be reserved for George Mills.

He was the first man to score a century of league goals for the club and was the last player for the Blues to score a hattrick against Liverpool.

Eden Hazard (110)

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Eden Hazard moved to Real Madrid in 2019.

The Brilliant Belgian bagged 110 goals across a sensational seven-year period. You’re always welcome back at the Bridge, Eden.

George Hildson (108)  

George Hilsdon’s name is one for the history books.

He was the first centurion goal scorer for Chelsea, netting 27 goals in his maiden season to help the Blues to their inaugural league promotion.
