Chelsea in Numbers

Chelsea have won our last seven Europa League matches at Stamford Bridge by an aggregate score of 20-4.

Chelsea have won 82 (69.5 per cent) of our European home games and lost just eight of 118 matches played at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have scored in each of our last 35 home games in European competition, netting 91 goals in the process (2.6 per game). The last occasion we failed to score was against Manchester United in the Champions League quarter-final in April 2011.

We are 11 games unbeaten in the Europa League. Our 2-2 draw at Vidi on matchday six ended a run of eight successive wins. Our last defeat in the competition was 2-3 at Rubin Kazan in the 2013 quarter-final second leg after we won 3-1 at the Bridge.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is one of only two players to have scored a hat-trick in this season’s Europa League. The other is Salzburg’s Takumi Minamino.
