THE DATA DAY: ASTON VILLA V CHELSEA
Coming from behind to snatch the points, we didn't have it all our own way at Villa Park. Here are the important facts and figures...
The one stat everybody knows is that Frank Lampard's brace took him to 203 Chelsea goals. Nobody has scored more for the club.
Of those 203, 14 have now come against Villa, his favourite opponents in terms of goalscoring. The two goals took him to 15 for this league season, taking him to joint sixth in the list of top scorers.
Christian Benteke's goal was his 14th Premier League strike in 2013. Nobody has more.
Both sides had 15 shots, but Villa failed to take advantage of their early superiority, and registered just two on target, including Benteke's opener. Chelsea had seven on-target efforts, 10 of our shots coming after Benteke's red card.
Lampard attempted six shots, also bringing a save from Brad Guzan with his first-half free-kick.
Both sides had seven shots blocked, including the two on the line for the Blues where Demba Ba's effort looked to have crossed the line.
With reduced numbers on the field, both sides had decent pass completion rates. Chelsea found our men 83 per cent of the time, Villa 80.
We had 57 per cent possession and completed 408 of 493 passes, though the ball spent more time in our half than the hosts'. Villa actually completed five more passes in our final third than we did in theirs, our 93 the lowest in some time. They also made 36 interceptions to our 10, with Fabian Delph and Ashley Westwood making nine apiece.
For the time we were a man down, we attempted just 14 passes, Villa 89.
John Terry was the game's top passer, misplacing just four of 61 passes. Eden Hazard completed as many, but misplaced 10. Terry was withdrawn 13 minutes from time, while the Belgian limped off in injury time. Villa's Delph completed 53 of his 57 passes.
Eden Hazard assisted both Lampard goals, and created a game-high four goalscoring opportunities for team-mates.
The home side completed 14 of 20 attempted take-ons, Chelsea just one of eight (Hazard). Benteke beat Gary Cahill for his goal, while Delph beat his man six times out of seven.
The two men dismissed, Benteke and Ramires, each completed three fouls, more than any others.
