STAT PACK: Chelsea clash under the spotlight

11 May 2017

Key facts ahead of final Hawthorns game of 16/17


HEAD-TO-HEAD

Albion and Chelsea have met 21 times in the Premier League. Chelsea have won all but six of those encounters.

None of those 21 meetings have ended goalless.

The Blues won the first 11 Premier League fixtures between the two sides.

The first meeting between the two sides came in September 1905 which saw Chelsea triumph 1-0.

The Baggies head into the fixture looking to win their first game in six, with Chelsea arriving at The Hawthorns needing just three points to secure the Premier League title.


ALBION

Albion haven't failed to score against Chelsea at The Hawthorns since 2008.

And the Baggies have won three of their last five Premier League matches against Chelsea at home (D1, L1).

Claudio Yacob has made 82 successful tackles so far this season, a club high.

Gareth McAuley scored the winner in March 2012 as Albion beat Chelsea for the first time in almost 30 years. They would only have to wait eight months for their next victory.

Salomon Rondon leads the scoring charts for Albion with eight goals. McAuley is just one behind with three games to play.

CHELSEA

Chelsea have lost just one of their last eight games against the Baggies in all competitions (W4, D3).

Cesar Azpilicueta leads the Premier League for successful passes in the 2016/17 season (2,257).

Diego Costa has scored in three of his five Premier League appearances against Albion, netting three goals in total.

Antonio Conte's side have won more Premier League games (27) than any other side this season and have scored the most goals (75).

If Chelsea win this match they will claim their fifth Premier League title. Only Manchester United (13) have won more.
