Chelsea loan stars embarrass first team with combined 82 goals

Chelsea had 39 attempts on goal against West Ham on Wednesday night, but failed to convert any of them into a goal.

It may have been a freak one-off result, but would the Blues have stood a better chance of taking all three points if one or two of their loaned out players were on the pitch instead?

Chelsea have a total of 25 players out at different clubs on loan this season - and the stats, compiled by Telegraph reporter John Ley, make for surprising reading.

The Blues - including one goal from Juan Mata, now at Manchester United - have scored on 60 occasions so far this season.

Eden Hazard is the club's top scorer with 10 goals, while none of Chelsea's strikers are into double figures for the season.

However, the 25 players on Chelsea's books who are currently out on loan have scored a combined 82 goals, with Patrick Bamford (20), Thorgan Hazard (11), Romelu Lukaku (11) and Lucas Piazon (11) all comfortably into double figures.

Which players on the 'loaned out' list should Chelsea have kept this season?

And which of them should be first-team regulars next season?
