(Video): Chelsea’s deadly strike partners talk about Abramovich revolution

Gudjohnsen and Hasselbaink

Chelsea have had some pretty great strikers over the years, but no partnership quite as special as the one that Eidur Gudjohnsen and Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink had.

It wasn’t just that they had about 40 letters in their names between them. They had a great understanding on the pitch, as they played through a fascinating period in Chelsea’s history which saw Roman Abramovich arrive.
