Chelsea’s woeful season has been down to pretty much the whole club, but no players have faced more of the blame than Cesc Fabregas. The Spanish midfield playmaker has been a significant disappointment throughout 2015, but he has shown a bit of promise in 2016.
Squawka, rightfully, picked up on a stat that Fabregas has topped in the league this season, but it really begs the question of how someone can have such a minimal impact.

This calender year, no Premier League player has found his team mates more often, but how has this Spaniard still been so ineffective?
Other Chelsea fans were more in awe of John Obi’s appearance on a list… its not often the Nigerian is on a list with positive statistics.
@Squawka Always said Mikel was sexy

The Blues’ midfield has improved of late and Squawka’s statistical revelation might just reflect a return to the Fabregas of 2014. If so, every side will need to be wary of the ex-Arsenal man’s penetrative passing.
