It’s quite interesting to compare your height with Chelsea players to see how you’d line up next to them. All figures are taken from So here we look at the Chelsea FC Shortest Players 2017/18:

5. Emerson is one of Chelsea FC Shortest Players – 1.75 metres

New signing Emerson Palmieri comes in at number 5 at 1.75m ( 5 ft 9 in). The Brazilian has not had his chance to prove what he can do yet with limited appearances. Lets hope he gets more chances next season in 2018/19 season.

4. Willian is one of Chelsea FC Shortest Players – 1.75m

Willian has been Chelsea’s best player recently and has created and scored some fantastic goals. I actually never realised that Willian was one of Chelsea’s shortest players at 1.75m. The Brazilian had a personal tragedy earlier on in the season when he lost his mother. It took him awhile to get back playing to where he is now, and understandably so.

3. Eden Hazard is one the Chelsea FC Shortest Players – 1.73m

Chelsea’s best player on his day, Eden Hazard is also one of the shortest players at the Blues. Standing at 1.73m (5 ft 8 in), Eden Hazard isn’t actually too short, but the other Chelsea players like Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata make him look small.

2. N’Golo Kante is one of the Chelsea FC Shortest Players -1.68m

I was actually very surprised to learn that N’Golo Kante is not Chelsea’s shortest player. He looks tiny compared to some players, especially the defenders like Gary Cahill and Antonio Rudiger.

N’Golo Kante is Chelsea’s best player in my opinion and has eclipsed Eden Hazard. Kante is simply superb in every game he plays in, whereas Hazard just chooses to turn up or not.

Standing at 1.68m tall ( 5 ft 6 1/2 in) he is smaller than average bu this short height allows him to tackle defenders from the blind side without being seen. He also can adjust his body and legs so quickly to allow him to tackle or intercept.

Kante must be the best small footballer in the world right now (excluding Lionel Messi of course).

1. Pedro is the shortest Chelsea FC player – 1.67m

Pedro is number 1 of our Chelsea FC shortest players list. He is the shortest Chelsea FC football player. Standing at 1.67m (5 ft 6 in), Pedro is surprisingly strong. You don’t often see him getting bullied by bigger opposition players.

It’s a surprise though that Pedro is shorter than N’Golo Kante. Pedro has not had a good season with Chelsea FC this season and has rarely started. He could be on his way out next season depending on what happens over the summer.

Pedro has a low centre of gravity due to his small height which allows him to twist and turn with the ball at his feet.
