The 2018/2019 season recently came to an end and the Blues had a largely decent run despite some hiccups along the way. To sum up their campaign performance, here are some of the important statistics worth reviewing.
Chelsea played a total of 63 games in the 2018/2019 season. They won 39, drew 13 and lost 11 games.
As far as the players go, the one with the highest appearance goes to on-pitch captain, Cesar Azpilicueta. He played in 57 matches, either as a starter or as a sub.
Willian had 56 appearances, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Jorginho followed with 54 apiece, N’Golo Kante 53, Eden Hazard and Pedro 52 each, Mateo Kovacic 51 and David Luiz at the ninth spot with 50. Barkley had 48 to give him the 10th position.
However, if we consider appearances as those who started the games, Kepa tops the list with 54, followed by Azpilicueta and Jorginho at 50. Luiz also lands higher with 47 out of the 63 matches.
The player who clocked the longest on the field goes to Kepa. He logged 5,228 minutes out of the possible 6,080. Azpilicueta finished second with 5,183 minutes and Jorginho’s 4,639 is enough to land him the third spot.
And while we have the players who saw the most action, we also have the most subbed on and subbed off player.
Olivier Giroud was subbed 24 times out of his 45 matches played, while Willian was relieved 29 times. Pedro had 24/36, Barkley 19/30, Jorginho 12/50, Morata 11/18 and Hazard 11/40.
For the most Chelsea goals this season, Eden Hazard had 21, five of which came from the penalty box. Giroud and Pedro had 13 goals each, Ruben Loftus-Cheek came in fourth with 10 and for the fifth place, Alvaro Morata with 9 goals.
In total, the Blues had 112 goals, 61 of which were scored with the right foot, and 14 by headers and the balance came from the left foot. 13 goals came from a corner and 15 from outside the box. While they had 112 goals, the Blues also allowed their opponents to score 58 goals.
