Sunday night was a wonderful one for every real Chelsea fan, as the Blues won Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium to go top of the league. Interestingly, it was Chelsea’s 6th win and 6th clean sheet in 6 games, after the loss to Arsenal which prompted Conte to switch to a 3-4-3 formation.
Check out some other interesting stats from after the game:
Chelsea have now scored 17 goals and conceded none in the past 6 league games.
Chelsea have the second best defence in the Premier League. Only Tottenham have conceded fewer goals than Chelsea, 8 compared to Chelsea’s 9.
Chelsea are 17 points better than they were at this stage last season. What a remarkable transformation.
Chelsea are for the first time in over a year top of the Premier League table. The last time Chelsea were top of the table was way back in May 2015.
Diego Costa has been involved in more goals than any other player in the Premier League this season. 10 goals and 3 assists to his name. The man is on fire.
Antonio Conte is the second Chelsea manager in the Premier League to win 6 consecutive league games without conceding a single goal.
