United 2 Chelsea 1 - Post-Match Fascinating Facts

United 2 Chelsea 1 - Post-Match Fascinating Facts

Following a defeat in a game whereby many thought our performance should have given us at least a share of the spoils, we`ve uncovered a few fascinating facts for you to mull over.

• The defeat means that Chelsea have lost back-to-back Premier League away games for the first-time since November 2015, when Jose Mourinho was the man under pressure in the Chelsea hot-seat.

• When Chelsea score first they usually win. That had been the case in 22 consecutive games before today, the loss, after leading, was the first suffered by Chelsea since they lost to Crystal Palace last April.

• The goal Willian scored for Chelsea today was the Brazilian`s 12th in all competitions this season, equalling his best ever return for a season in 2016 / 2017.

• Eden Hazard, who provided the assist for the Willian goal today, has now been involved in 9 goals in his last 8 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 6 and providing 3 assists.

• When it comes Chelsea playing games on a Sunday, they`ve lost just 4 of the 55 matches played, sadly, all 4 have been in Manchester, two against United and two against City.
