• In the loss against Manchester United last week, Chelsea’s players covered a total of 125.99km, more ground than they have in any games since their first of the season against West Bromwich Albion.
  • Juan Mata put in more ground than any other player has in a single Premier League game this season, covering 13.63km.
  • Ashley Cole’s tackling has been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons, but the left back has won more tackles than any other player this season with 20 (87% of all those attempted). John Terry is ranked fifth for tackles won having won 17, 85% of all attempted
  • Torres’ difficult start to the season continued on Sunday, with the striker getting his first goal of the season and second for Chelsea, but his shots on target are now at just 42% after THAT miss…
