    1. First team in Premier League history to score 100 goals in a season

    The last English champions to hit a ton in a league season were Tottenham Hotspur, back in 1960-61, with 102 - one less than the Blues, though Tottenham scored 111 when they finished as runners-up in 1962/63. Spurs' feat was also achieved in a 42-game season.

    2.First Italian coach to win Premier League

    Carlo Ancelotti is the Blues' third Italian coach, following Gianluca Vialli and Claudio Ranieri. He is only the third manager to bring the title to Stamford Bridge, following Ted Drake and Jose Mourinho.

    Perhaps owing to his reputation today as one of the world's best managers, many people tend to forget that Carlo Ancelotti had been regarded as something of a loser in football management until seven years ago, when Milan defeated Juventus on penalties at Old Trafford in a dull 2003 Champions League final

    No moment in his early coaching career shaped this initial perception more than Juve's last-day collapse, which saw Lazio pip them to the 2000 Serie A title.

    Having been Serie A runners-up with Parma in 1997, earned successive second-place finishes with Juve in 2000 and 2001 and been eliminated in the semi-final of the Champions League in 1999 by Manchester United - despite leading 3-1 on aggregate in the second leg in Turin - Ancelotti was tagged by the Calcio community as a "nearly-man"

    These disappointments eventually led to Carletto's departure from Juve at the end of 2000-01, with former general manager Luciano Moggi of the opinion that Ancelotti lacked the winning mentality to take his team over the final hurdles.
