Chelsea lost for the first time under Antonio Conte and it was in quite strange circumstances. We look at @statszone for the numbers.
Matic spoke to Sky pre-match and mentioned how Chelsea were aware of Liverpool’s threat and had watched all the videos. It seemed like Chelsea were a bit fearful of our opponents and chose to sit back in a low black and cede possession and territory to our visitors.
It didn’t work, Liverpool took an early lead and a long range effort from Henderson put our opponents up 2-0 and left Chelsea chasing a game. By the 36th minute Liverpool had had 7 shots with 3 of those on target, Chelsea had mustered just one shot on target from 5 attempts, all of which had come after the 25th minute when Chelsea were already chasing the game.
Chelsea actually improved in the second half, as Liverpool were content to sit on their lead and Chelsea had no choice but to attack. Shots and shots on target were almost equal come the end of the game and Chelsea made 13 of 20 passes into their area compared to Liverpool who made just 6 of their 13 attempts. What is also notable is the areas targeted by the both sides. Normally Chelsea tend to pass inside the box on our attacking left side – where Eden is heavily involved and Costa tends to float to the left. However this graphic shows a reversal.
The blues were fouled 13 times in the game, compared to the 6 fouls we committed. Not all yellow cards are issued for fouls but Chelsea get a booking once in every three fouls. Chelsea are not very good at making attack ending niggling little fouls that never result in cards. Whereas our opponents (in every game) seem to get away with a lot more.
Only Stoke have been fouled more often than us this season. Chelsea were the most fouled team in the league last season.
Eden Hazard was noticeably poor, He has had 8 shots on target in the four games prior to this, compared to 24 across the whole of last season in all competition. There is clearly a noticeable onus on Eden to produce. However having been fouled 6 times, 3 times more than any Chelsea player in the game, our Belgian produced zero shots in the game.
Having started the season well improving on last season’s results this has come as a bit of a wake up call for the manager and players.
