The official Chelsea website looks at the key statistics to come out of yesterday’s hard-earned victory over Hull…
We had a 53 per cent share of possession, and 54 per cent of the territory.
We completed 468 passes to Hull’s 427. In the first half, we made nearly 100 more passes than them, but after they break they completed almost 50 more than us.
In the attacking third, Eden Hazard made 46 passes (out of his total of 57), 20 more than the next player, N’Golo Kante.
Overall, Tom Huddlestone completed 20 more passes than anyone else (79). Kante, Hazard and Azpilicueta ranked highest for us.
Gary Cahill to Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses to Cesar Azpilicueta were our most frequent pass combinations.
Diego Costa netted with one of his six shots, three of which hit the target. We had nine overall. Harry Maguire had four of Hull’s nine efforts on our goal.
Moses and Cesc Fabregas created two chances apiece, with both players registering an assist, Moses’s depicted below.
During his 25 minutes on the pitch, Fabregas completed all 24 passes he attempted and created two big chances, one of which was headed in by Cahill.
There were a couple of standout individual contributions defensively with David Luiz and Azpilicueta registering nine ball recoveries apiece.
We have now won nine straight home games in all competitions and 12 in 13 this season.
