Chelsea’s explosive start to their clash with Hull City today had everyone fearing for the Tigers’ goal difference. However, in remarkable scenes, Steve Bruce’s side smashed a quick fire double whammy to draw level with Jose Mourinho’s side.
The Blues’ lapse at the back to allow Hernandez his first goal in five months will forever haunt Thibaut Courtois. The Belgium ‘keeper’s error will have no doubt left Chelsea’s attacking players left exasperated with the looks of “Well, I’m doing my job right.”
And no one is doing their job right more so than former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas; he was a revelation when he first rocked up at Stamford Bridge, however, until today, the Spanish international had failed to register an assist since January.
Despite a lapse in form, no one ever doubted the former Barcelona ace’s abilities and, following Fabregas’ assist to tee up Diego Costa for his 19th goal of the campaign, he took the remarkable title as the most prolific ‘assister’ out of Europe’s top five leagues!
Cesc Fàbregas has now recorded 16 assists in the league this season, no player in Europe's top 5 leagues has more. pic.twitter.com/sLawD31Fzd
