One of our busiest seasons ever contained plenty of Chelsea goals with a record number of different scorers. Here we detail the data behind each goal in 2021/22, and those conceded…
In total, Chelsea netted 122 times last season. Only twice in our history have we scored more goals in a single season, in 2009/10 (142) and 2012/13 (147).
These were our top five goalscorers in all competitions:
Of the 122 goals, just under half – 59 in total – were scored with a right foot, 38 were left-footers, 21 headers, and one with a right knee. Three were own goals.
A total of 16 goals were scored from outside the area, including the Chelsea Goal of the Season by Mateo Kovacic above.
The most common quarter-of-an-hour period for Chelsea to score during the 90 minutes was in the first 15 minutes after half-time when 28 goals were scored. The least common was straight after that, between the 61st and 75th minute, when 14 goals were scored.
At the other end of the pitch, the Blues let in 51 goals in all competitions over the course of the season. We were most vulnerable in the 15 minutes after half-time, conceding 11 times.
