English Premier League 2014-2015 - Chelsea's lead by round

July 7, 2015

This chart was originally published on SportStats dot Click.

This chart highlights how comfortable Chelsea FC was in its run to English Premier League title in season 2014-2015. A couple of facts:

  • Chelsea was in lead from round 1, and the only time it wasn’t in top position was round 2, when Tottenham took the lead based on goal difference only.
  • The only time some other team got really close is round 20, when Manchester City had the same number of points (Chelsea lost 5:3 to Tottenham). The ascent began in the very next round, and after only 4 matches, Chelsea was 7 points ahead of City.

You can hover over chart points to highlight difference at that point.
