Juan Mata: Chelsea's main man | Stats compared to last season

Juan Mata has been an integral part of Chelsea’s play since he joined under Andre Villas Boas in the summer of 2011. His influence last season was instant, scoring on his debut against Norwich. He played a vital role in providing much needed creativity in a side which relied on defence towards the latter parts of the season. After the Euro’s and Olympics, Mata started the season looking jaded, but after a break from international duty and a rest from …

Chelsea: What's going wrong at home? Stats & Tactical Analysis

Chelsea under Rafa Benitez at home and away are two completely different propositions at this current moment in time. At home Chelsea look tentative, slow and ponderous, while Chelsea at away look expansive and break on the counter. So, what’s the problem? Chelsea are given much less space at home than they are away, however, as the statistics prove, they are creating the chances at home and aren't converting them.

There was comparatively little fanfare for the Brazilian Oscar. Combined with Juan Mata, the three make for a potent midfield just behind Fernando Torres. However, it would be naive to think that Oscar is only an attacking force. His work rate and positional awareness are also key. The …

What to do with a problem like Ramires? Stats Analysis

Ever since Ramires has come to the English game, I’ve been a big fan. Although slight in frame, he is someone who has energy in abundance and can change a game, Barcelona away sticks in the memory. However, with new signings coming in, his place in the team is in question, not only is his place in question, his role in the side is in doubt. Last season, AvB started the season with a 4-3-3 formation and Ramires was in …
Chelsea shouldn't forget John Obi Mikel

Chelsea shouldn't forget John Obi Mikel

With Chelsea winning the Champions League and the big spending that has come from it, you may forget one of Chelsea's best performers at the back-end of last season. Chelsea have brought in a lot of attacking talent in midfield, giving a lot of options in the 3 of a 4-2-3-1, however being too attacking would leave the defense exposed. Within the 2, Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel were exceptional in the Champions League final, especially the latter, and …
