No unbeaten run? No problem – five landmarks still in Chelsea’s sights.
With a surprise 2-1 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United last season ending Chelsea’s hopes of emulating the Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ side of 2004 and going a whole campaign unbeaten, here’s a look at five more landmarks within reach for the Blues this term.
While the actual Premier League trophy will be the club’s main priority, this superb team can still make history in the record books as they look on their way to boasting some highly impressive statistics.
For those interested in more than just trophies, here are five more Premier League records Chelsea can break this season, including some of their own, set by previous great Blues sides…
1) Most points in a Premier League season
A record currently set by their 2004/05 title-winning team, Chelsea can still mathematically eclipse their amazing points tally of 95, and finish on as much as 105 points for the campaign if they win all their remaining games. While that in itself is unlikely, they can still do better than 95 based on how well they’ve played so far.
