Chelsea goals in 2019/20

Right foot, left foot, outside the box, penalties, from corners, early on: Chelsea's goals in 2019/20 came in all shapes and sizes. Here we detail how and when we found the net last season, as well as those occasions we were breached at the other end...


In total, Chelsea scored 102 goals in 2019/20. From those, there were our top goalscorers in all competitions:


Of our 102 goals, 67 were scored with a right foot, 23 were left-footers and 11 were headers. We benefitted from one own goal, Harry Maguire's in the FA Cup semi-final. 

We scored 16 goals from outside the box. 


Exactly half of our goals scored - 56 - were from open play. Eleven were penalties and two were direct free-kicks. 

We scored marginally more goals in the first half of games than the second - 52 to 49. 

We scored our goals pretty evenly over the course of 90 minutes, with no 15-minute chunk containing more than 17 goals or fewer than 13. We were particularly prolific in first-half stoppage time, netting on six occasions. 


At the other end, we conceded 79 goals in 2019/20. Of those 29 were from open play. We were most vulnerable in the final 15 minutes of games, conceding 21 times. 

We let in one goal in stoppage time at the end of each half.
