(Image): Chelsea don’t feature in top 5 of any major stats as Lampard’s team keeps flying under the radar

Listen to Chelsea fans talking about their team, especially after the last month, and you’d think you were hearing someone drone on about Brazil 1970.

But looking at WhoScored, Frank’s team don’t actually enter the top 5 of any of the major selected categories for teams from the top 5 leagues.

That’s a pretty wide spread of positive things – possession, aerial duels won, dribbles per game, tackles per game, interceptions per game, shots per game, pass accuracy, and the “ratings” that the company give. And… aggression.

Chelsea are clearly just outside the very elite in Europe right now statistically, but a lot closer than anyone would have moved.
