Chelsea F.C were the most fouled team in the English Premier League for the 2014/2015 season, after all said and done, with Eden Hazard pulling most of the fouls with his brilliance on the field. But this season, just as part of last season saw, we are seeing Diego Costa making defenders pull unneccessary tackles at him. On the other hand, we have a very talented midfielder in competition with Hazard in the person of Alexis Sanchez, who also pulls tackles as his body movement is sharp and very trickish there leaving Arsenal and Chelsea to compete for the most fouled team in the EPL.

Here is a table showing the Most Fouled Club in the EPL so far, and guess who sits on the Top of the table.

Then who is pulling this fouls that much? And of course Arsenal are behind them as usual.

Does that mean that all other players in those other teams do not know how to make players foul them or they do not have much of a trickery as E. Hazard and A. Sanchez, or they are not as physical as Diego Costa or maybe they are not as fast as Willian? 

Does is also mean that Chelsea F.C have more of the ball possession in every match that they have played? I guess the answer is no. Then why?
