This stats sheet came out after Arsenal's 2-3 loss to Swansea (brought to my attention by my friends over at The Arsenal Column). The Gunners are obviously the focus of this comparison but it is interesting to see how Chelsea stacks up against other top teams in the league.
As far as 'unsuccessful passes in own half' is concerned, Chelsea are on per with the likes of City and United. It is really no that surprising if you consider that Terry, in the league, has one of the best pass completion percentage (91.4% successful - 1163/1273): only Swansea's Britton is better (with 93.3% successful - 1128/1209) than the Chelsea captain among those who have played more than 20 games this season.
However, City are doing much better than the rest in making the least number of 'unsuccessful passes in defensive third'. Not much I could say at this moment other than, "Must. Pass. Better. In. Defensive. Third."
Thoughts and theories on these statistics?
Carefree, wherever you may be...
