A Pitiful Setback

By Gary Watton

One-goal Chelsea came unstuck in Salford when they again failed to score many goals in a major match and consequently failed again to beat a major rival. Since these two teams last met, Chelsea have failed thrice to beat Arsenal, failed to defeat Liverfools, and failed to overcome Barcelona in a home match, scoring five goals in those five matches, averaging at a pitiable one goal per match. It is now looking increasingly unlikely that a goal-shy Chelsea will make the cut for next season's Champions League. Quite frankly, the competition would probably be better off without them.

The recent statistics are damning and quite revealing for one-goal Chelsea, with its non-scoring centre forward(s):

Five goals in last six matches against Arsenil

Five goals in last five matches against Barcelona

One goal in last two matches against Bournemouth

Three goals in last three matches against Crystal Palace

Seven goals in last eight matches against Liverpoo

Three goals in last four matches against ManUre

No goals in last match against Manchester Mercenaries


Manchester United 2 CHELSEA 1; half time: 1-1

CHELSEA goal scorer: Willian

CHELSEA: Courtois; Christensen; Rudiger; Azpilicueta; Drinkwater; Alonso; Kante; Moses; Morata; Willian; Hazard. Used substitutes: Pedro; Giroud; Fabregas


CHELSEA leading scorers:

Hazard fifteen

Morata twelve

Willian twelve

Batshuayi ten

Alonso seven

Pedro five

Bakayoko three

Rudiger three
