Chelsea have more points now than entire 2015-16 season

Chelsea’s improvement under Antonio Conte was evident once again at Leicester City on Saturday – but was also demonstrated by a remarkable statistic following their 3-0 triumph at the King Power Stadium.

Marcos Alonso scored twice to add to a Pedro header as Conte’s men cruised to another impressive victory and move seven points clear at the Premier League summit.

Their tally of 52 points from 21 games is more than they managed in the entire 2015-16 season – a campaign that started woefully under Jose Mourinho before he was sacked with Guus Hiddink returning as interim boss.

Chelsea ended the season in 10th place with 50 points from 38 games.

It has been a different story this term and, although their 13-game winning run was ended at Tottenham in their previous league outing, they were swift to return to winning ways against last season’s champions.
