5. Jose Mourinho has a win percentage of 59.85% (2013-2015)

4. Carlo Ancelotti has a win percentage of 61.47%
One of the top Italian Chelsea managers. Carlo Ancelotti managed Chelsea between 2009 and 2011. From the 109 games he managed, Chelsea won 67 times, drew 20 and lost 22 games. The Italian was known for his attacking brand of football. In his first season in charge, Chelsea scored a Premier League record of 103 goals.
3. Avram Grant has a win percentage of 66.67%
Avram Grant is higher on this list than Carlo and Jose. Why? This is due to the fact he only managed 54 games for Chelsea between September 2007 and May 2008. Of those 54 games, Grant won 36 times, drew 13 and lost 5 times. However Avram Grant was let go, despite this win rate. Luiz Scolari took over the next season.
2. Jose Mourinho has a win percentage of 67.03% (2004-2007)
The “special one” Jose Mourinho’s first spell at Chelsea made him number two on this list. The Portuguese manager took over the club in 2004 and has a win percentage of 67.03%. This is due to the fact Jose Mourinho won 124 games out of a total of 185 games while managing The Blues. He drew 40 times and lost 21 times.
1. Guus Hiddink has a win percentage of 72.73%
Guus Hiddink, known as the “caretaker manager”, has the best win percentage for Chelsea of all-time. As a matter of fact, Hiddink has had a habit of taking over Chelsea when they are in trouble after having had two spells at the club. Furthermore, his win rate is high because Hiddink only managed 22 games for Chelsea. Of those 22 games, Chelsea won 16 times, drew 5 and lost 1.
Furthermore, Hiddink would later come back to Chelsea as interim manager once again in 2015. This was after Jose Mourinho was sacked in that disastrous season. Hiddink managed to turn their season around, albeit with a lot of draws, with Chelsea finishing 10th. This just goes to show how bad that season was then in 2015/16.
The former Russia national team coach is a personal favourite of Roman Abramovich.
