Top 10 goal scorers for Chelsea in Champions league

It was often an obsession to start with for the
Blues, with countless managers paying with their
heads for failed European campaigns.
Then, finally, salvation. Against all odds, with
interim boss Roberto Di Matteo in charge and
arguably a far weaker squad than in years gone by,
Chelsea won the Champions League against
Bayern Munich, in Munich in 2012.

1. Didier Drogba
Appearances: 74
Goals: 36
There was only ever going to be one man to pip
Lampard to the post. The epitome of Chelsea’s
dogged struggle to eventually reach Champions
League glory, Drogba dragged the Blues to victory
almost single handedly in the final in 2012. One of
the club’s greatest ever players, it will take some
doing to beat this record.

2. Frank Lampard
Appearances: 102
Goals: 23

You knew Super Frank Lampard was coming right
up there in this list. A fantastic footballer, Lampard
was ridiculously consistent and efficient for
Chelsea throughout his career at Stamford Bridge,
and the personification of the ‘never say die’
attitude instilled at the club during the noughties.
A Champions League winner in 2012, he remains
the club’s all-time top scorer with 211, despite
being a central midfielder.

3. Nicolas Anelka
Appearances: 37
Goals: 12
Le Sulk enjoyed the best spell of his tumultuous
career at Stamford Bridge, acting as the perfect
foil for Didier Drogba and regularly making an
impact off the bench.
Unfortunately, the worst moment of his career
came in Blue too, as his decisive penalty was
saved in the 2008 Champions League final.

4. Fernando Torres
Appearances: 29
Goals: 10
Fernando Torres had some fine moments in the
Champions League, scoring arguably the club’s
most iconic goal (from open play) in the Camp
Nou as he ran from the halfway line to round Victor
Valdes. He boasts a Champions League winners
medal among his haul. Enough said.

5. Willian
Appearances: 41
Goals: 10
Another Brazilian defector to Arsenal, Willian was a
consistent performer for Chelsea in all
The fact he outscored Hazard in fewer games
demonstrates he was perhaps not as appreciated
as he should have been during his peak years.

6. John Terry
Appearances: 109
Goals: 10
Captain, leader, legend and surprisingly regular
Despite the stalwart being a centre-back, Terry still
managed ten Champions League goals, famously
dressing in full kit to lift the trophy despite being
suspended in 2012.

7. Tore Andre Flo

Appearances: 14
Goals: 8
Another surprise, considering he made fewer than
half the appearances that Hazard made.
Nevertheless, Flo was very efficient in front of goal
in the Champions League, scoring twice in the
quarter-final first-leg victory over Barcelona in
2000. He ended up being joint-third top goalscorer
in the competition that year.

8. Timo Werner

Appearances: 17
Goals: 8
The German is yet to really come good at Stamford
Bridge, but he scored some important goals during
the 2020/21 run.
Werner ended up with three goals that campaign,
including a vital one in the semi final success
against Real Madrid.

9. Oscar
Appearances: 30
Goals: 8

Perhaps a little surprising to see the mercurial
Brazilian this high, but some of his best moments
came on Champions League nights (see above).
The exquisite turn on both Leonardo Bonucci and
Andrea Pirlo, and the whipped finish past Gianluigi
Buffon are the enduring memory of his pretty
average time at Stamford Bridge.

10. Eden Hazard
Appearances: 38
Goals: 8

Eden Hazard should surely sit higher up this list
considering his caliber, but in truth he was never
part of a Chelsea setup that shone on Europe’s
biggest stage.
The furthest he would get would be the semi-final
in 2013/14, with future teammate Diego Costa
knocking him out. Thankfully, he won plenty
