Chelsea’s reverse at Aston Villa on the final day of last season is our only defeat on the road in the Premier League since Thomas Tuchel took over. The other 10 away games include three draws at Southampton, Leeds and Liverpool and seven wins at Tottenham, Sheffield Utd, Liverpool, Crystal Palace, West Ham, Manchester City and Arsenal.

We are one point behind Arsenal in the all-time Premier League table. With a Blues victory and if Arsenal draw or lose at Burnley, we will move clear second behind Man Utd.

Since Thomas Tuchel’s first game in charge, only Manchester City (54) have won more Premier League points than Chelsea (48). Excluding the promoted sides, we have conceded the fewest goals that run (14).

Chelsea are unbeaten in our last 42 Premier League games when leading at half-time.
