The Nine Points That Prove Chelsea Are Much Stronger Than Last Season

Chelsea recovered from going a goal down to beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 at Ewood Park on Saturday thanks to a late Branislav Ivanovic header.

The result against Sam Allardyce’s men means the Blues have already gained nine more points this season than they did last term against the same teams in the corresponding fixtures.

It now seems the machine-like approach has served Carlo Ancelotti’s side well after their double-winning campaign last season - do bad, reboot, do better.

Following their remarkable points tally in these fixtures compared to last year, UK looks at the fixtures where the Blues slipped up in the 2009-10 season and where they have made amends this term.

The story is too old to be commented.
