Stat Attack: Chelsea's Brazilians

29/03/2017

Throughout their history, Chelsea have welcomed plenty of foreign players to Stamford Bridge.

One nation that has supplied the Blues with some of their top talent is, unsurprising, five-times World Cup winner Brazil.

In Chelsea's team right now, there are three Brazilians: David luiz, Willian and Kenedy. Plus, there are three more on loan: Wallace, Nathan and Lucas Piazon.

Diego Costa is another of Chelsea's Brazilian-born players, but the striker chose to play for Spain at international level.

Did you know? A total of 14 Brazilians have signed for Chelsea since the first, Emerson Thome, who played in Chelsea's Champions League win over Barcelona in 2000.

Many of Chelsea's Brazilian stars have played for the Blues in recent years, including Ramires, Oscar and Alexandre Pato.

All three players left for China last season, becoming some of the first Premier League stars to move to the Chinese Super League.

Did you know? Ramires won the Chelsea Players' Player of the Year award in 2012.

The Blues kept their best Brazilian player from last season, however...

Did you know? Willian won Chelsea's Player of the Year award and Player's Player of the Year award last year.

Willian is currently playing in the Brazilian national side, which just became the first team to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia!

The Chelsea star will come back from the international break hungry for more football, and could line up to face Crystal Palace on Saturday.
