Spooky fact attack: Halloween special

23/10/2018

Hey BridgeKids,

As we're only a few days from Halloween, the spookiest day of the year, I thought I'd share some awesome facts and stats from Chelsea fixtures played on 31 October.

1. In 2012, Chelsea and Manchester United played a thrilling League Cup quarter-final, which the Blues won 5-4.

David Luiz and Eden Hazard both scored from the spot, while Gary Cahill, Daniel Sturridge and Ramires also found the back of the net, with the match going to extra time!

2. Chelsea's first ever competitive match on Halloween was a 1-1 draw with Bristol City, way back in 1908!

3. Fast forward again to 2007, when Chelsea had another thrilling League Cup encounter, beating Leicester City 4-3, with Super Frank Lampard getting a hat-trick! The Blues even made it to the final that season!

4. One year before that, Chelsea played their first ever Halloween Champions League match, drawing 2-2 with Barcelona at the Nou Camp, thanks to goals from Lampard and Didier Drogba.

5. Here's a spooky coincidence: both of the Barcelona players who scored in that match played for Chelsea during their careers as well! Barcelona sold Deco, who scored the first goal, to Chelsea in 2008, while Eiður Guðjohnsen, who netted Barca's second, had just signed from Chelsea in 2006! How weird is that?!

KTBFFH!
