The Data Day: Wolves v Chelsea

Our statistical analysis of last night’s defeat shows we didn’t carry the same threat once Wolves got back on terms…

Overall we had 17 shots last night to Wolves’ six. Just three of our attempts were on target, though, and from the moment the hosts equalised we didn’t test Rui Patricio once.

Of the five efforts we had after Wolves went ahead, four were off target and one was blocked.

Two-thirds of Wolves’ attempts came in the final half-hour and they netted with their only on-target efforts of the night.

Eden Hazard attempted a game-high five shots, followed by Willian and Raul Jimenez with three. Hazard also recorded six key passes, the most of anyone.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Morgan Gibbs-White completed a joint-high three dribbles, and our midfielder showed his strengths elsewhere, winning five aerial duels, as many as anyone.

We had a 70.3 per cent share of possession and recorded an 88 per cent pass completion rate, with our centre-backs Antonio Rudiger (95) and Andreas Christensen (74) making the most successful passes.

Wolves committed 18 fouls to our 10, although they didn’t commit one in the final 20 minutes, whereas we fouled on five occasions as we lost our way, also picking up three bookings in that time.
