You can break a team and a season down into a million different stats and numbers, but in the end it will always come down to how many wins you have, and that will usually be defined by how many goals you score.

But the dropoff from the top two to Chelsea – 99, 94 and 76, shows the gap between the Blues and their title rivals.
The gap of 18 points is ultimately what matters, but that won’t be closed until we start scoring a similar number of goals.
