Underlying Stats

The attack

Chelsea have scored 11 goals in the last six Gameweeks, only two teams, Spurs and Man City, have scored more. Over the course of the season the blues have scored 68 goals, a tally only bettered by Liverpool and Man City who are above them in the league.

Mason Mount is Chelsea’s top for goal scorer this season with 10. Kai Havertz is second with seven. This means that the Chelsea goals have been spread across the team, making picking an attacking FPL asset more challenging.

Mount is also top across the Chelsea team for attacking returns this season with 20. His 11 assists adds to his appeal for FPL managers. Only four FPL midfielders have more attacking returns than Mount over the course of the campaign.

Like James, Marcus Alonso also looks an attractive FPL investment. The wing-back has three goals this season, as well as eight attacking return. Only the four defenders in the graphic above have more. Alonso’s three attacking returns in the last six Gameweeks is more than any other defender.

Owning one of them therefore means managers are unlikely to benefit from their points in teams of Overall Rank rise. Only 2540 managers in the top 10k own both Mount and James, therefore owning more than one of them is a good way to differentiate an FPL team.

Overall

Chelsea assets have the potential to bring huge points returns in the final weeks of the season, especially with two atttractive Gameweek 36 fixtures. Whilst Chelsea’s form hasn’t been great in the past few Gameweeks they do over good potential.
