PMB: Watford v Chelsea - the numbers

We have plenty of numbers related to our game on Monday from club statistician Paul Dutton…

The defeat against Bournemouth was only the second in 17 Premier League games for the champions.

WATFORD IN NUMBERS


Formed 
1881
 

Watford have not lifted any major silverware but have won several lower division championships. Their best top-flight season was 1982/83 when they were runners-up to champions Liverpool and ahead of third-place Manchester United. That was Chelsea’s worst season when we escaped relegation by finishing 18th in the old Second Division.

No team has won fewer home points this term than Watford (13).

The Hornets have gained seven points from their past 12 Premier League matches.

Watford have used more players in the Premier League this term than any other club (28).

Watford have won 10 points from a possible 36 at home this season. Their three wins were against Arsenal, West Ham and Leicester, four draws with Liverpool, Brighton, Tottenham and Southampton and five defeats to Manchester City, Stoke, Manchester United, Huddersfield and Swansea.
