While Chelsea had 65% possession in the first half Newcastle clearly in the second half more than held their own.
What came out of of the Chelsea match according to BBC Statistics is the following;
Possession NUFC 44% Chelsea 56%
Total Shots NUFC 11 Chelsea 11
Shots On Target NUFC 5 Chelsea 6
Corners NUFC 3 Chelsea 2
Dives NUFC 0 Torres 3
I think the stats in terms of shots are interesting with Newcastle having the same number of shots and only one less on target. Come to think of it, apart from Torres’ brilliant finish on half-time I can’t really remember Tim Krul having to make many, if any, outstanding saves.
