Brazilian anchorman Ramires has had a mightily impressive start to the season…
Oscar – 3
Ivanovic, Terry, Hazard, Mikel, Willian – 1
The Brazilian playmaker is the only Blues performer to have bagged more than one goal in the league so far this year after Jose Mourinho made him Chelsea’s first-choice no.10 ahead of Juan Mata.
Mata, Terry, Lampard, Ba, De Bruyne – 1
No player has registered more than one true assist either, although fans will be encouraged that Mata and De Bruyne have already assisted a goal each, despite the fact they regularly start from the bench.
Shots per game:
Samuel Eto’o – 3.3
Demba Ba – 2.5
Oscar – 2.4
No player takes more efforts on goal than the 32-year-old Cameroonian striker, but he is still yet to register his first for his new side.
Passes per game:
Ramires – 59
Gary Cahill – 59
John Terry – 54
Chelsea’s Brazilian anchorman sits deep in midfield and pay short, simple passes, allowing the other players to attack.
Key passes per game:
Eden Hazard – 2
Juan Mata – 2
Andre Schurrle – 1.9
The Belgian winger and the Spanish playmaker make more key passes than anyone else in the squad, and Mourinho should consider starting them together more often.
Dribbles per game:
Eden Hazard – 1.9
Oscar – 1
David Luiz – 1
Interestingly, only one player in the Chelsea squad attempts more dribbles per game than David Luiz, a centre-half!
