Reddit user u/AdzBoogie shared an infographic which shows that Chelsea were not far off the standards set by Liverpool and Manchester City last term.
The foundations of football, to simplify it as far as you possibly could, are to score goals and not concede them.
Frank Lampard’s side were only narrowly behind the top two in terms of the expected amounts of both.
The West London giants have significantly strengthened since last season, too, with the acquisitions of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Eduoard Mendy.
With all six of those additions likely to be included in what you would consider Lampard’s best XI – Chelsea could go all the way and win the Premier League title this season!
The Blues have looked a little short at times this term, but with Christian Pulisic and Ziyech previously out injured, and a couple of the other new boys just getting up to speed, you feel as though we haven’t yet seen the best of Lampard’s men.
