Stat Attack - Fulham (a)
Following the splendid 3-0 win over at Craven Cottage last night, I`ve assembled a few statistics for you to mull over:-
• The game saw Frank Lampard reach the 600 appearance mark for Chelsea, although Frank couldn`t get a goal to edge nearer to that goal-scoring record of 2-2, currently held by Bobby Tambling.
• The sumptuous strike from David Luiz, a strike that opened the floodgates, was the Brazilian`s first goal, away from home, in the Premier League, all the other five have come at Stamford Bridge.
• David Luiz, last night, made his100th appearance for Chelsea.
• The win, with Frank Lampard playing a part, makes it 71% of games in which Frank has participated Chelsea have won, compared to only 13% when he doesn`t play.
• The assists, by Juan Mata, made it 11 for the season, more than any other Premier League player.
• The brace, scored by John Terry, was the second time he`d scored two in the Premier League, the only other occasion being against Charlton in November 2004
