The Spanish midfielder is now the most
player to reach 100 avails in the
competition, after providing two for Chelsea
against Stoke City
Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas became
the first non-British player to reach 100
Premier League avails as he established Willian
against Stoke City.
The Spaniard is withal the most expeditious
player to
reach the milestone, taking just 293
appearances to reach 100 avails.
Fabregas is only the fourth player to have
provided that many final balls for goals,
putting him alongside Ryan Giggs, Wayne
Rooney and Frank Lampard as the players
to have achieved the feat.
However, the former Arsenal midfielder has
a long way to go to catch avail bellwether
Giggs, who set up 162 goals during his
vocation with Manchester Coalesced.
Fabregas does not have the same distance
to catch Rooney or Lampard, needing just
one more avail to match the Red Devils
captain, and three to overtake the former
Chelsea and Manchester City midfielder.
The avail for Willian was Fabregas's
second provider of the day, teeing up Gary
Cahill's opener afore Stoke equalised
through Bruno Martins Indi.
In the same game, Eden Hazard got back
among the avails, establishing Willian's first
goal. The avail was Hazard's first in the
Premier League at Stamford Bridge since
May 2015.
