Which Chelsea players have played the most minutes in the 2012/13 Premier League? Who has made the most starts, or the most sub appearances?
Player Usage Charts
Farthest right = more starts. Low = many sub appearances. Bubble size = minutes played
Red = defenders. Yellow = midfielders. Orange = forwards. Green = strikers.
A pretty consistent defensive core is evident, with Terry not a part of it due to his injury.
There is no real #1 central midfielder to talk of, instead we see a pretty consistent selection of Hazard and Mata in the wide positions. Oscar has been a victim of sorts under Benitez and this is evident in his recent sub appearances.
