In this installation of "Raw Numbers," I looked at some of the interesting statistics from Chelsea's league performance in the month of September.
"Raw Numbers," for those of you who don't know, is a segment in which I present statistics (numbers) on their own, with very little commentary. I let the numbers speak. To make it a bit more lively, I am using tables, charts, graphs and photos.
I'm only looking at the league games in September (games against Sunderland, Manchester United and Swansea City). This is mainly because there are a lot more statistical data available for leagues compare to, say, Champions League games or Carling Cup games. All the numbers in the post come, one way or another, from Guardian Chalkboard, ESPN and Yahoo Fantasy Football. If there are any inaccuracies, I am to be blamed. Here are the raw numbers...
