It’s been a decent start for Chelsea who have lost just one of their opening four Premier League (PL) matches (W2, D1). Their victory last time out against Crystal Palace also handed them their fourth clean sheet in five PL home matches. This is worth noting given that they also secured six clean sheets across their ten home matches vs sides who finished 11th or below last season.
Although the ‘Blues’ have kept just one clean sheet so far this season, they’ve done well restricting shots on their goal. Subsequently, they’ve faced under 3.5 shots on target in three of their four PL fixtures so far, and under 1.5 in the first half in three of the four.
