9. Didier Drogba
One of Chelsea’s greatest players and an icon of Jose Mourinho’s first and most successful period with the club, you’d forget that Drogba struggled when he first arrived from Marseille. The goals were dry and he was constantly accused of diving. However, when he settled, he was an absolute powerhouse.
He won back-to-back titles in 2004/05 and 2005/06. Then he would go on to win the Golden Boot a year later before repeating the feat with 29 goals in 2009/10. Drogba is also a legend off the pitch, famously setting up hospitals and schools in his native Ivory Coast.
