Stoke City

Eden Hazard maintains perfect record; Chelsea reach century in key attacking area

We bring you the best Opta stats from Chelsea's 2-1 victory over Stoke City at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea were made to work hard for their three points against Stoke at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, but Eden Hazard starred for Jose Mourinho's league leaders.

Here are the top five statistics from Saturday's encounter:

100 - Eden Hazard’s converted penalty was Chelsea’s 100th in Premier League history. Liverpool (102) are the only other team to reach that milestone. He has now scored more league goals for the club over the past three seasons (35) than any other player.

9 - The Belgian international has now scored all nine Premier League penalties he has taken; no player has taken more and never missed one (Dimitar Berbatov, formerly of Tottenham, Manchester United and Fulham, is also on nine).

8 - Incredibly, Hazard completed twice as many dribbles versus Stoke (8) as the rest of the Chelsea players combined (4). The 24-year-old also completed a match-best six key passes; three more than any other player involved. 

1 - Charlie Adam became the first Stoke player to score a league goal at Stamford Bridge since Rory Delap in January 2009.

0 - Chelsea remain the only team in the four divisions of English football who have not lost a home match in the league this season.

Bonus: Stoke were shown six yellow cards at Stamford Bridge, the joint-most by any team in a single Premier League match this season.
