Almost a fifth of all Chelsea's Premier League games over the last 10 seasons have been early kick-offs.
As many as 70 of the Blues' 370 Premier League games since the start of the 2005-06 season have started on or before 13:30, that's 19 per cent of their games.
Manchester United and Liverpool have had the most early kick-offs with 90 each, 24 per cent of their league games over the last 10 seasons.
Tottenham have had the next highest number of early starts with 82 (22 per cent of matches), that's followed by Arsenal on 71 (19 per cent of games) and then Chelsea.
However, despite the inconvenience early kick-offs present to away fans and those who enjoy a pre-match pint, early games do offer some advantages to fans.
A total of 610 goals have been scored in the 217 matches held on or before 13:30 over the last 10 seasons.
That works out at 2.8 goals per game.
However, matches which have kicked-off after half-one have averaged just 2.6 goals per game.
Home wins are just as likely in early kick-offs, with the hosts winning 47 per cent of games that start on or before 13:30 and 47 per cent of those that are played later in the day.
However, away wins are slightly more likely.
Just 27 per cent of games which start after 13:30 are won by the away side compared to 31% of games that kick off earlier.
Chelsea travel to Hull on Sunday afternoon.
