Chelsea 4 Watford 3 - Post-Match Fascinating Facts

Chelsea 4 Watford 3 - Post-Match Fascinating Facts

It`s good to be a Chelsea supporter at the moment, success has once again been bestowed upon us, in the form of the 2016 / 2017 Premier League title and there is a real buzz about the place as we head towards the FA Cup Final.

Following last night`s win over Watford, it would be rude to break a season long tradition and cobble together some fascinating facts, so here goes.

• The win last night was win number 29 of the season, equalling the most number of wins in the Premier League in a season, a record Chelsea set with 29 wins in both the 2004 / 2005 and 2006 / 2006 seasons.

• Watford had 3 shots on target all game and scored from all 3 shots.

• With the Premier League title secured, Antonio Conte chose to make 9 changes to his starting eleven, this was the most ever by a Chelsea manager since the inception of the Premier League.

• In scoring the opening goal of the game, John Terry ensured that he has now scored for Chelsea in 17 consecutive campaigns.

• The goal John Terry scored was also the 1000th goal Chelsea have scored, in the Premier League, since Roman Abramovich bought the club in the summer of 2003.

• John Terry`s goal was also Chelsea`s 100th in all competitions this season.
