5. Chris Sutton
Chris Sutton will always be remembered as one half of the great SAS pair for Blackburn Rovers’ one and only Premier League title back in 1995, scoring 21 goals that year. However although after the departure of Alan Shearer caused his goal tally to drop the following campaign, the Englishman got back to his goal-scoring ways and managed 12 and then 21 goals in 1997 and 1998.
Blackburn’s relegation 1999 opened the door for Chelsea, who paid £10million to bring the striker to Stamford Bridge.
Signed to become Gianfranco Zola’s partner up front, Sutton was unable to cope with Chelsea’s style of play during 39 appearances, in which he only managed to score one league goal.
And only after one season, the Blues had enough of the flop and sold him to Scottish club Celtic for just £6million.
