• If Chelsea fail to win they will be only the second champions in the last 12 seasons to end with fewer than 86 points (Man Utd 2010/11, 80).
  • Diego Costa needs one more goal to become the fourth player to score 20 Premier League goals in a single season for Chelsea (+ Drogba twice, Hasselbaink twice & Lampard)
  • Chelsea have not lost successive Premier League games under Jose Mourinho since May 2006 when they were also in the position of having won the league already.
  • Jose Mourinho's four defeats this season have been to managers whose names begin with the letter P, while his only Premier League home defeat as Chelsea boss was to Sunderland when they were managed by Poyet.
  • Mourinho has won only four of his last 10 Premier League games against Newcastle and Sunderland.
  • Sunderland have won only one of their 13 final day games in Premier League history.
  • That one final day win did come in London (away at West Ham in 2011).
  • Chelsea have ended the Premier League campaign with a 2-1 win in each of the past three seasons.
  • If John Terry plays the full game he'll be only the second outfield player to play every minute of every game in a PL season and win the league (after Gary Pallister in 1992-93).
  • If Chelsea avoid defeat they will set a new record for fewest defeats in all competitions in the Premier League era (they have lost four so far).
  • Chelsea have 70 goals this season. The average number of goals for the champions in the 20-team PL era (1996 onwards) is 81.
