We once again look at @statszone for insight into our comprehensive 3-0 win over the champions Leicester. A result that inflicted Leicesters 100th away defeat in their premier League history. It also saw Costa score his 7th goal of the season and another Chelsea clean sheet.
Chelsea continued with a 3-4-3 formation, and what was notable how advanced Hazard was, post match Eden commented on his happiness with the formation and the freedom he now has. That freedom and happiness resulted in 5 shots from Eden – more than double anyone else on the pitch. 20 final third passes completed (a game high), 4 successful take-ons, 7 ball recoveries and a total of 36 successful passes from 45 attempted.
Chelsea did give up position and possession in the early part of the second half, understandable and expected when already up two goals at home. Chelsea completed 305 passes in the first half, but little over 150 in the second.
Alonso’s average position much deeper in the second period, Luiz dropping into a sweeper like role, although Hazard still maintained his high position.
Chelsea for the second time this season denied their opponents a shot on target.
Danny Drinkwater attempted more passes than anyone else on the pitch but only completed two into our penalty area. His two major passing combinations were back to his fullbacks, suggesting Chelsea controlled the midfield and our defensive areas well.
David Luiz was excellent and demonstrated more smart decision making and although he nearly scored an own goal, his touch on to his own post denied Vardy a sure goal. Long range passes also featured and although accuracy needs to improve it shows another option in Chelsea’s play in recent weeks.
Chelsea youth also featured with Chalobah earning a wonderful assist – the youthful bench and conte’s post-match talk shows fans that our youth may finally get the opportunities many have been asking for.
Kante was awarded man of the match against his former club and his dashboards, supported by the overall flow of the game, show a more attack minded player in the 3-4-3, the extra centre back in Luiz gives Kante freedom to stay in midfield and move forward rather than dropping back between two orthodox centrebacks. Hopefully ridding him of lazy Makelele comparisons.
Although the game was not particularly dirty, Chelsea have now suffered 109 fouls this season in the league only Stoke (118) have suffered more.
