Chelsea are the most successful team in Europe based on this statistic

Chelsea are the most successful team in Europe this season, based on points won per game.

Here's a statistic that will excite Chelsea fans.

Jose Mourinho's side boast the most points per game in Europe's top five leagues this season, ahead of Serie A champions Juventus, Bundesliga kings Bayern Munich and Champions League holders Real Madrid, all of whom top their respective domestic tables.

After recruiting quality over quantity during the recent summer window - Jose Mourinho brought in Spanish internationals Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas, alongside Brazilian full-back Felipe Luis - the Stamford Bridge outfit the Blues have made an inspired start to the 2014/15 campaign, and remain unbeaten to date.

Already seven points clear of last season's winners Manchester City, the club are in a fantastic position to secure their fourth Premier League winners trophy, with many bookmakers and pundits predicting an unbeaten domestic season. 

Just a decade on from Arsenal's 'Invincibles', there is a genuine possibility that Chelsea might go through the entire season unbeaten. They've already traveled away to Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton - emerging with eight points - ensuring a significantly easier run-in during the second half of the campaign.  

It is thanks to the clubs consistency that many are predicting their first title since 2010. Mourinho has crafted a perfectly balanced team at the Bridge, with a strong defence and attack, capable of challenging the continent's most elite sides.

It is of great credit to the Portuguese head coach that his side are the most in-form side in Europe.
