Football Focus stat: one goal conceded by Chelsea in 12-game run
In twelve consecutive Premier League wins so far, CHELSEA has only conceded once says the BBC Football Focus pundit John Motson on today’s final programme of the year. MOTSON asked his fellow pundits in the studio the question: “Chelsea have conceded just once in their 12-game winning run but to whom?” To the astonishment of the Football Focus pundit team with Presenter Dan Walker, the answer eventually was sifted out before the end of the programme.
It was revealed that CHELSEA this season has been on a 12-game consecutive winning streak with just the one goal scored against them by Tottenham. There was another occasion when one goal was actually conceded or rather scored against CHELSEA. This was in-fact an own goal. Therefore, going into the New Year’s Eve last game for this year, CHELSEA will be confident in knowing they can possibly keep yet another clean sheet.
Today’s game against Stoke City sees CHELSEA playing at home captained by GARY CAHILL who scored that own goal that has created stats that pundits like John Motson have brought into focus. No team have scored against CHELSEA this season with a headed goal and DAVID LUIS in defence alongside the Chelsea captain and CESAR AZPILICUETA have to stay firm in their 3-man defensive back line.
With NGOLO KANTE and DIEGO COSTA both back from suspension, it could be another winning streak continuation for the Blues and with another possible clean sheet. Manager ANTONIO CONTE has been very consistent with the use of his strong and high flying midfield players and wing-backs that have made sure the defence is both on the back as well as front-foot pressing for goals. This includes CESC FABREGAS, VICTOR MOSES and WILLIAN plus the CHELSEA goal-striking attacking-midfielder EDEN HAZARD.
At 33minutes in the first-half of today’s game against Stoke, would you believe it?
GARY CAHILL has scored. So it’s 1-0 CHELSEA right now and CAHILL has scored in the right goal.
