Chelsea dropped points at home to Burnley in a game that took more headlines than the result would have suggested. Influence shows Trippier being Burnley’s most feature player. but Chelsea dominant overall. with Filipe Luis, Fabregas and Hazard in control.  All three Chelsea players featured as the game’s top passers.

Hazard completed a game-high 7 of 10 take-ons and 4 chances created.  Fabregas completed 63 of his 79, with 23 of 31 in the final third, but created just one chance for a teammate.

Chelsea had more of the games shots, and 9 inside the penalty area to Burnley’s 6. Burnley’s goal was just the second Chelsea have conceded from a set piece this season (Villa the other) and just the third inside the six box in the league this season.

Atkinson gave 18 fouls in the game, although a few went unnoticed, but seen, if that’s even possible. According to the referee both sides committed 9 fouls with all but one coming in the middle third.

Barnes was largely frustrated by Chelsea winning just 4 of his aerial duels from 20 attempted and he completed just 14 passes in the game, 50% of those he attempted. although he produced a game high 4 shots on target.

Luis arguably gave his best performance in a Chelsea shirt and certainly had my vote for man of the match. The left back won all 8 of his tackles and made a team high 12 recoveries, with only Trippier making more (13). No player made more interceptions in the game than Luis’ 4.

A disappointing result overshadowed by some poor officiating, accepted almost unanimously amongst the media and pundits. All except the FA, Atkinson and the referee’s accessor it seems.

We look back on Chelsea’s victory over Everton using @Statszone to find insight into how the game played out.

Influence shows are dominant and attacking Chelsea team, with only Terry and Zouma the outfield players whose average positions were in our own half.

Chelsea had much of the ball in Everton’s defensive third, completing over 100 more passes than the away side. Chelsea completed 186 of 243 attempted to Everton’s 78 from 102 attempted.

Into the second half the blues continued to dominate with Chelsea even more advanced, Everton’s influence in the game dwindled and Barry’s sending off just aided Chelsea’s cause. Everton completed 26 of 38 final third passes in the second half, without a single one into our penalty area. By comparison Chelsea completed 96 of 126.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez suggest Chelsea’s pressure on the referee influenced the decision to give Barry his second yellow card and Everton would have won the game.

The shots inside the penalty area should a different story. The Blues outshot Everton 11-2 with 4 on target to Everton’s 2. Although both Everton shots required a fine save from Petr Cech.

Overall chances support Chelsea’s dominance with the home side creating 17 chances to Everton’s 6. with 7 vs 4 coming in the second half

Chelsea did struggle to breakdown Everton’s defensive performance and attempted 45 crosses in the game to Everton’s 9, of which 8 were completed successfully to Everton’s one.

An important victory, like last season, the blues left it late to secure three points. The game should have been more comfortable had an earlier chance been converted.

Gameweek 26 2014-15: Passing Statistics

Article published on 2015-02-27 by ChelseaStats of TheChels.co.uk |

Passing ChelseaStats

The following table shows the current squad and how they have contributed to the team's passing in the Premier League so far this season. The figures include percentages of the team's overall performance.

Some players may appear to misplace a higher percentage of the teams misplaced passes but this maybe due to the sort of player they are and the types of passes attempted, for example creative players may try more speculative passes in congested areas compared to a centre-back finding a midfielder 10 yards away.

Each week we will tag the article with the players who completed the most passes in that week
