The Data Day: Chelsea v Stoke City

We take a statistical look back at yesterday’s 5-0 victory over Stoke City at Stamford Bridge…

We had 21 shots on goal compared to Stoke’s one solitary attempt.

Twelve of our efforts on goal were on target.

We also forced seven corners while Stoke didn’t record a single one.

Pedro had eight attempts on goal, the highest number of any player, and the Spaniard was followed by Willian who had four efforts.

Willian also completed four successful dribbles, more than any other player, as well as the highest number of key passes with six, including assists for goals scored by Toni Rudiger and Pedro (illustrated below).


The Brazilian has now been directly involved in six goals in his past four Premier League games against Stoke (four goals, two assists).

Five of Pedro's last seven Premier League goals have come from outside the box.

Cesar Azpilicueta came out on top in terms of passes made with 107, just two more than Danny Drinkwater.

Chelsea have conceded just four goals in our past 12 Premier League games, keeping eight clean sheets along the way. We have also kept four consecutive clean sheets in the league.

Over the course of our last three matches our opponents – Everton, Brighton and Stoke – have recorded a total of two shots on target.

The Blues have taken 25 points from a possible 27 in our nine home Premier League games against Stoke, winning eight and drawing one.

Antonio Conte has won more points (138) in the Premier League than any other manager since August 2016.
