Over the years, Chelsea has had plenty of iconic players. Picking out just three dream team-mates is a near-impossible task.
Thanks to Three, 90min got the chance to sit down with Marcos Alonso, Reece James and Timo Werner to pick their brains about the club's long list of former stars, as part of Three's quest to bring Chelsea fans closer to their club.
Of the trio, Alonso has a slight advantage. The Spaniard arrived at Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2016, meaning he got one season alongside a certain centre-back by the name of John Terry before the Englishman moved to Aston Villa.
"I would have loved to have played with him when he was at his peak," Alonso confessed. "I was thinking about [Gianfranco] Zola too, and maybe Gus Poyet."
James wasted little time with his first answer: "[Didier] Drogba."
He named Michael Essien as his second choice, and after a gentle reminder from Werner about who calls the shots at the Bridge, James opted for Frank Lampard as his third dream team-mate.
As for Werner, he came prepared. Lampard and Drogba were both in his top three, and they were joined by German legend Michael Ballack, who formed a dominant partnership with the current boss between 2006 and 2010.
The conversation isn't all about football, however. Werner revealed himself to be a secret Harry Styles fan and Alonso confessed to getting caught up in the hysteria surrounding docuseries Tiger King after the Premier League season got postponed.
There's a real excitement at the Bridge this season. Following the arrivals of Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, Thiago Silva and Édouard Mendy this summer, Chelsea are targeting a return to the top of the football mountain.
The Blues have played some scintillating football already this season and Lampard will hope to see that momentum continue to build for a little while longer.
