Our last fixture against West Bromwich Albion wasn’t an easy one to predict, but there were still some impressive scores from fans on Play Predictor.
Every point registered from the Premier League match at The Hawthorns was well earned given the frantic action in the West Midlands, as we fought back from three goals down after half-time to draw 3-3. Perhaps understandably there was just one fan who correctly predicted that final score.
Similarly, it seems most were expecting us to get our first goal earlier in the game, with just 27 fans getting full points for predicting it would come in the 55th minute. Combined with the fact a huge 75 per cent of people said Timo Werner would get that first Chelsea goal on the day, there would have been a lot more points scored if his first-half effort which struck the crossbar had been an inch or two lower. Just like Premier League football, it seems Play Predictor can be decided by the narrowest of margins!
However, there were still 3,136 fans who did get Mason Mount as the first Blues scorer, as our number 19 was the fourth most popular choice, behind Werner, Kai Havertz and Tammy Abraham.
Those who went for Abraham did still get five points thanks to his injury-time equaliser, though, as did the 1,084 fans who backed Callum Hudson-Odoi to find the net.
The most common source of points for fans over the weekend was the number of Chelsea shots on target, with 3,462 people getting our total of 10 spot on.
Don’t worry if you weren’t among that 4.6 per cent to call it correctly, you can make up the points in the next round of Play Predictor, which is already open for tomorrow’s London derby against Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup.
That match is a particularly good opportunity to bag yourself a prize as it is the last in the first month of the season, meaning a big score could shoot you up the monthly leaderboard just in time to win the £500 Megastore voucher and signed merchandise bundle up for grabs to September’s top scorer.
