Premier League

One Milestone Chelsea Achieved Among London Clubs After Defeating Brentford By 1-0

Chelsea FC withstood late pressure from Brentford to secure the three (3) points of the game on Saturday night. Ben Chilwell scored the only goal in the game in the 43rd minute, his third (3rd) in three (3) games for club and country this season. Chelsea FC returned to the top of the Premier League table with nineteen (19) points.

Currently, there are seven (7) London clubs in the English Premier League, they include Chelsea FC, Fulham, Tottenham Hotspur, Crystal Palace, West Ham United, Arsenal FC, and Brentford. Chelsea FC has played against all these clubs away from home and won all consecutively. The Blues is the first club in the top four tiers of English football to win seven (7) away consecutive London derbies. That is incredible!

The statistics show that Chelsea FC won away from home by 1-0 goal against each of Fulham, West Ham United, and Brentford, 4-1 against Crystal Palace, 2-0 against Arsenal FC and 1-0 and 3-0 against Tottenham Hotspur respectively. With Brentford 1-0 goal lost to Chelsea FC, the club remains winless in seven (7) games played against Chelsea FC in all competitions, lost six (6) and drawn one (1).

Since the club coach, Thomas Tuchel has been appointed in January 2021, the Blues has kept as many clean sheets, seven (7), as they have conceded goals away from home in the English Premier League. Arsenal FC may have won more trophies than Chelsea FC overall, no doubt that the Blues is indeed the Pride of London.
