Following Moises Caicedo’s spectacular strike against Bournemouth on the final day, we take a fond look back at some other great long-range goals scored by the Blues in the Premier League.

At a record distance of 50.5 yards, the Ecuadorian’s right-footed effort from just inside the Cherries’ half was the furthest Premier League goal scored in seven years and (quite probably) the Blues’ longest ever strike in the competition.

Caicedo’s stunner came just over a month after another great lob from distance at the Bridge.

In April, Cole Palmer found himself in a similar position to Caicedo when he intercepted a poor pass by Jordan Pickford 35 yards from goal.

Palmer promptly dispatched the ball over the head of the Everton goalkeeper to bag his third goal of the game after 29 minutes in our 6-0 demolition of the Toffees.

David Raya may have been better positioned than Pickford when Brentford played at the Bridge in April 2022.

But the Spaniard was also left helpless when Antonio Rudiger lined up a right-footed effort from nearly 40 yards out and rifled the ball in off the upright.

The German’s stunner came three years after he had watched his defensive partner Fikayo Tomori bag the club’s Goal of the Season award for 2019/20 with a long-distance gem at Molineux.

With just about every Wolves player packed into their own box, the centre-back opted to bypass them all as he sent a brilliant curler from 35 yards past Rui Patricio.

Another defender with an eye for the spectacular was David Luiz whose 18 goals for the Blues included several long-distance efforts.

Perhaps the finest of those came at Craven Cottage back in April 2013 when his 35-yard rocket flew past Mark Schwarzer to open the scoring in a 3-0 win over Fulham in the west London derby.

While Juliano Belletti only managed five goals during his time at Chelsea, they tended to be quite special.

Belletti's 30-yard opener in our 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at the Bridge showcased the folly of giving the right-back too much time and space to line up a shot.

Opposition defenders were not likely to make that sort of mistake when defending against Didier Drogba, but they could still be left helpless when the powerful Ivorian was in the mood.

A good example of that came at Goodison Park in December 2006 when he received a flick-on from Andriy Shevchenko 40 yards out, chesting it down before producing a superlative strike which bent and dipped past a hapless Tim Howard to seal a memorable 3-2 win over Everton.

To complete our look back at Chelsea’s long-range gems, we have an effort by Tiago Mendes at Old Trafford in our first Premier League-winning campaign in 2005.

Nobody in the Manchester United defence appeared to be too concerned when the Portuguese midfielder received the ball from Claude Makelele way, way out from Roy Carroll’s goal.

But they were left to rue that lack of urgency when he took a couple of touches before launching his right-footed effort into the top corner.
