Chelsea goals in 2018/19

As we continue to review the season just completed, we look here at the goals scored by the Blues over the course of the campaign, and a few conceded too…


In total, Chelsea netted 112 times in 2018/19. From those, these were our top five goalscorers in all competitions:


Of the 112 goals, just over half – 61 in total, were scored with a right foot, 32 were left-footers and 14 headers.

A total of 15 goals were scored from outside the penalty area.    
 


The most common quarter-of-an-hour period for Chelsea to score during the 90 minutes was between 76 to 90 minutes when 23 goals were scored. The least common was in the first 15 minutes of a game when 12 goals were scored.

At the other end of the pitch, the Blues let in 58 goals in all competitions over the course of the season. We were most vulnerable after half-time, with 19 conceded between 46 and 60 minutes.

We let in just one goal in first-half added time and one in second-half added time.
