Stoke v Chelsea - Fascinating Facts

Stoke v Chelsea - Fascinating Facts

Chelsea head to Stoke this weekend hoping to get a result that will at least keep the gap at the top of the Premier League table at ten points.

Ahead of the fixture we`ve assembled, from the form books, a collection of fascinating facts relating to the fixture.

• Chelsea`s recent form against Stoke isn`t the best, when it comes to games in the Potteries against our hosts, we`ve only won 2 of the last 7 games.

• However, when it comes to Premier League fixtures between the sides Chelsea have the edge, winning 12 and drawing 3 of the 17 Premier League meetings.

• Stoke are on a good run of home form, their last 8 games have seen 4 wins and 4 draws.

• Stoke have conceded just 2 penalties all season, both back in August. Chelsea though are the only side with a better record, having conceded just 1 all season.

• Stoke have kept clean-sheets in 3 of their last 4 Premier League games.

• Stoke have won 9 times in the Premier League, all of those wins have come against teams who are currently 12th or lower in the table.

• Chelsea, when it comes to playing teams outside of the top five, have won 18 out of 20 fixtures.

• The last 22 games in all competitions have seen Chelsea win 19, draw 2 and lost just 1.
