The Data Day: Everton v Chelsea

      No Comments on The Data Day: Everton v Chelsea

We take a statistical look back at yesterday’s goalless draw against Everton, a game in which the Blues dominated…

Antonio Conte’s side enjoyed a 68 per cent share of possession over the course of the 90 minutes but unfortunately could not convert it into goals.

Chelsea had a total of 25 shots on goal, compared with Everton’s five.

Eight of our attempts were on target, while Everton did not register a single shot on target in a home Premier League game for the first time since 4 December 2011.

It was the highest amount of shots we’d had in a Premier League game without scoring since a home match against West Ham in January 2014 when we had 39 attempts.

Of our 25 shots on goal, 12 were shared between the three attackers, Eden Hazard, Pedro and Willian.

We also forced seven corners during the game, five more than Everton.

Thibaut Courtois kept his 50th clean sheet for Chelsea.

Hazard was a big threat every time he picked up possession and the Belgian successfully completed five dribbles, the highest amount of any player.

Andreas Christensen once again finished the game with the highest pass completion rate, the defender successfully executing 94.9 per cent of his attempted deliveries.

Cesar Azpilicueta, meanwhile, made two blocks, including a crucial one from Dominic Calvert-Lewin on the stroke of half-time, more than any other Chelsea player.

Everton have now failed to score in their past four Premier League games against Chelsea.

Yesterday’s game, and the home match against Arsenal, are the only two fixtures we’ve played this season which have ended 0-0.
