When it comes to the 2004/05 season, there’s various Chelsea moments to choose from – but let’s start at the beginning, shall we? Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge was always going to be a memorable match, especially when our opponents were none other than Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United.

Thankfully for us, the gaffer delivered – securing a victory in a tense 1-0 win over the Red Devils. Eidur Gudjohnsen scored the only goal of the game, but the match marked the start of something special under the Portuguese.
