Conte Chelsea

Dismal Chelsea stat sums up feelings of Blues’ fans vs Man City

An amazing statistic regarding Chelsea’s performance during the first-half of their clash with Premier League leaders Manchester City has been doing the rounds online this evening.

Matchup

The two sides are currently locked in action at the Etihad, with City having come into proceedings hoping to extend their already massive lead atop the Premier League table.

The Sky Blues sat 15 points clear of nearest challengers Liverpool in the English top-flight table before today, and no doubt headed into this evening’s clash brimming with confidence, having put Arsenal to the sword by 3 goals to nil in consecutive fixtures over the last week.

Chelsea, meanwhile, saw their positive recent streak of results come to an end at the hands of Manchester United last time out, with goals from Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard ensuring that Jose Mourinho got one over on his former employers.

First-half

The opening 45 minutes this evening saw hosts City unsurprisingly control the majority of possession, with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane particularly influential.

However, chances were few and far between, with Cesar Azpilicueta’s clearance off the line from Leroy Sane’s driven effort the closest that either side came to a goal.

In fact, so little did visitors Chelsea create over the course of the first-half, that the Blues actually managed to equal an unwanted 14-year-old club record, as showcased below:

Supporters of the capital outfit were incensed by their side’s aimless showing throughout the opening 45 minutes, with many having taken aim at Antonio Conte for his decision to once again line out with Eden Hazard at centre-forward.
