Following their draw with Arsenal this weekend, Chelsea have been roundly accused of being boring as they took an inevitable step towards another Premier League title.
Gunners fans, who were once so used to the tag, rang out with a chorus of “Boring, Boring Chelsea” at the final whistle, but the chant had more than a faint air of sour grapes rather than a bounty of truth.
As Jose Mourinho’s hold over Arsene Wenger continues, Blues stars were visibly elated with the 0-0 draw (which was only their second of the season) and there are numbers (via the Daily Mirror) to prove that boring isn’t a word that best describes the Blues.
Most goals per game:
Man City: 2.06
The Blues have been well amongst the goals this term, and can a team that shoots as much as Chelsea do really be boring?
