As we explained before this number is a little cursed at the Blues: it has been vacant since Radamel Falcao left the club last summer, having failed to meet expectations at Stamford Bridge while on loan from AS Monaco.

This shirt has been cursed for the last 15 years, since Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink wore it with distinction between 2000 and 2004.

Since then Mateja Kezman, Hernan Crespo, Khalid Boulahrouz, Steve Sidwell, Franco Di Santo and Fernando Torres have all struggled under its weight.
