We cast an eye over the key numbers from Saturday's draw, including another statistically impressive performance from Mateo Kovacic...

As Frank Lampard noted after the game, 23 shots recorded could have led to more than a couple of goals. Twelve of those attempts were off target, and a further five blocked. Nine were struck from outside the box.

Marcos Alonso registered a game-high seven efforts. Ross Barkley, Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud had three apiece.

Bournemouth had nine attempts on goal, of which five were on target.

The Cherries cleared the ball 49 times (compared to our 19), with centre-backs Nathan Ake and Steve Cook recording 23 clearances between them as they resolutely defended their goal.

We had a 73.1 per cent share of possession with Cesar Azpilicueta (10.3 per cent) and Mateo Kovacic (10.1 per cent) spending the most time on the ball.

That pair also completed the most passes (102 Kovacic, 101 Azpilicueta). Andreas Christensen’s 94 per cent pass completion rate was the best of anyone who started the game. The Dane was successful with 79 of his 84 passes.

Overall we found a team-mate 88 per cent of the time, up on our season average of 85 per cent.

As well as netting a brace, Alonso also recorded four key passes, a game-high figure. Pedro, Azpilicueta and Reece James played three each.

The game’s top dribbler, for the third successive match, was Mateo Kovacic. He completed all four of the take-ons he attempted.

Kovacic also won four tackles out of four, more than anyone else. Mount, Christensen and Pedro won three apiece.

We edged the aerial battle overall, winning 56 per cent of the 43 duels contested. Giroud came out on top a game-high six times, followed closely by Christensen who won five.
