If you aren’t a fan of pre-match stats, I suggest look away now.

Chelsea close up 2023 with an early kick off and to make matters worse, Chelsea have yet to win an early kick off during this calendar year.

The blues have had four early kick offs during 2023, with tomorrow being the fifth. Four of those five have been away from home with the most recent being Chelsea’s 2-1 away defeat to Wolves on Christmas Eve. The last 12.30 was the 2-0 home defeat to Brentford.

You have to go back to November 2021 to record seeing Chelsea win an early kick off and that was the 3-0 away win over Leicester under Thomas Tuchel. A day Chelsea went top of the Premier League.

That means Chelsea face the risk of not winning a SINGLE early kick off for two successive calendar years…

Since that victory in November 2021, Chelsea have played 7 matches in the early slot, winning none whilst losing five.

Results: Wolves 2-1 Chelsea, Chelsea 0-2 Brentford, West Ham 1-1 Chelsea, Liverpool 0-0 Chelsea, Chelsea 0-1 Arsenal, Man City 1-0 Chelsea, West Ham 3-2 Chelsea.
