Many who witnessed Cup glory in had to wait a long, hard 27 years before winning it again. These were lean times when an FA Cup trophy meant a lot more than it does in the over-hyped world that we see in modern football now.
It also represented a time when the best a club like Chelsea could hope for was a run in the Cup. Perhaps it is the very fact that it is a proper cup competition which stirs the emotions.
There is no divine right to winning the FA Cup. You never know quite what to expect. It has a wonderful nostalgic flavour with the hope of an away trip to old, seldom-visited rivals or lowly clubs whom you have not yet visited.
It is a lovely reminder of a better, sadly lamented football time, now passed. Drawing Norwich away was therefore something of a disappointment for Chelsea supporters hoping for a tie against Sheffield Wednesday, Fleetwood, Rochdale, Doncaster or, dare I say, Millwall.
This season, Chelsea will hopefully be determined to make up for the huge disappointment suffered last season in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal.
With the rare chance of a league and cup double up for grabs, Chelsea was a ghost of the side that had just won the Premier League and were soundly beaten.
Who is he, though? At last, a goalkeeper! While the bulk of this quiz has so far been made up of big-name strikers and legendary midfield players, this is the first goalkeeping name to turn up.
And what a name it is! Not only is this 'keeper usually viewed as the standout best to grace the Premier League, but many well-versed fans go as far as to say that this is the finest goalkeeper to ever play the game of soccer.
Now it's time to name him! While many of the players featured on this quiz are the glamorous sorts who have wowed fans and critics with goals and with delightfully magical attacking play, so often the very best of sides need a bit of grit and mettle in the middle of the park.
And if it's grit and mettle that you need, this iconic figure is exactly who you'd want in the middle of your starting line-up.
Tough, ballsy and a tad underrated with the ball, can you name this former player? That right there is a man who embodied passion personified throughout his playing career.
While many will see him as synonymous with the club whose shirt he's pictured wearing here, he would also go on to play for several other teams as well as proudly wearing the England jersey on 78 different occasions.
A tough tackling, no nonsense defender with a rocket of a left foot, this man is the stuff that managers often dream about.
The term "magician" is one that's thrown around a lot when talking about some impressively stylish and creative flair players, but there really is no better term to describe this playmaker of iconic proportions.
And what's even better than a classy playmaker? Why, how about if he's just a really, really nice guy who even your most hated rivals can't help but have a soft spot for?
That's was always the case with this now-retired star, but can you name him? As fans, we all love to watch a good flair player in action; a creative genius who can magic something truly special out of absolutely nothing.
The Premier League has seen its fair share of such players since its inception way back in , and the player showcased here is seen as one of the greatest magicians to kick a ball on British shores.
As well as that, boy was he feisty with it, too! But are you able to name him? If you've been a tad unsure on a few of the names featured in this quiz so far or you've been relying on lucky guesses, it's time to dish up a nice, easy question for you before things get wrapped up and it's time to total up your score.
This fella is an icon of the Premier League, an icon of the football world, and somebody seen as one of the best of his generation. So go on, name this global superstar.
Just look at him! From all of the players who have played even a minute in the Premier League, there are very few who can hold a candle to this suave, smooth and all-round glorious man.
Regardless of whatever team you support, even his biggest rivals couldn't help but purr in delight whenever this man stepped onto a football pitch.
Classy, stylish and overflowing with natural ability and charisma, can you name this legendary Premier League figure?
This guy here is another who was always most definitely up for the fight when called for during his career. As well as his ball playing, dribbling and shooting skills, this talented midfielder was box-to-box in his approach and would be more than willing to aggressively mix it up if the game called for a more physical approach.
Since finishing his playing career, this World Cup winner has now begun his journey in to the world of management. This soccer star has now retired from action, and many of you may now see him on your screens on a regular basis as an expert pundit.
And to be fair to him, even those who didn't like him as a player find themselves enjoying his punditry work as - let's face it - he actually talks sense and does so all while having a wry sense of humor.
More importantly than his current employment, though, can you name this Premier League legend? There's not even a handful of players involved in this quiz who are still active and playing in the English Premier League, and this powerhouse of a midfielder is one of them.
With several league titles to his name, several cup wins, and a whole host of plaudits from fans, critics and his peers, the impact of this player helped elevate his current team to an entirely different level of success.
More importantly than any of that, though, are you able to name this PL legend? Technique is such an important part of football, and the man shown here is largely seen as one of the most technically gifted players to play the game.
Of course, he's featured here in this quiz because his career saw him spend a hefty spell in the Premier League.
That spell would wield a bunch of silverware and accolades - not to mention giving fans some of the most memorable goals of all-time - but are you able to name this legend?
Seeing this player running off celebrating a goal isn't an unfamiliar sight to longtime fans of the Premier League.
In the pantheon of great Premier League goalscorers, this guy was one of the best. Maybe he's not in the top five strikers to grace the league, but he's certainly not far off when having that conversation.
Goals, goals and more goals, for a whole bunch of sides over many a year. But are you able to name this superstar forward?
If you happen to have a soft spot for a certain Manchester club, you may have this player pegged as the greatest to play in the Premier League.
But can you name him? While some players are famous and revered for the amount of trophies they've won at club level or even on the international stage, others players are simply beloved for being absolutely brilliant in a way like no-one else.
The guy highlighted here is undeniably a cult hero of epic proportions, a maverick of the highest order who would often look lazy or uninterested before pulling something truly magical out of his pocket at a moment's notice.
Can you name this legend, though? The old 'one raised hand' celebration is something that's been a part of football for decades, from school yards to professional games.
This striker right here scored an absolute truckload of games throughout his career, but he always kept it simple when it came to celebrating his glutton of goals for both club and country - and trust us, there were so, so many goals of all kinds of varieties.
So, have a think back and see if you can remember this PL legend? These days, it's a rare feat to see a one-club man; somebody who stays with the same team throughout their whole career regardless of which other teams come knocking for his services.
This legend of the Premier League did just that, winning a bunch of trophies along the way, often given the honor of captaining the team to such silverware.
Elsewhere, England duty would also come calling on a regular basis, but, more importantly, can you name this former player? But for what you ask?
