Hector Bellerin has equalled Cesc Fabregas’ assists for this season so far: four.
The right-back chalked up his fourth against Everton in the Premier League on Saturday when he played a beautiful pass up the pitch for Alex Iwobi to slot through the legs of the Joel Robles. The goal was our second of the match and helped us cruise to victory and take home all three points.
Fabregas, on the other hand, much like the Chelsea squad has been not-so-great this season. Last season, the Blues romped the League with Cesc providing 18 assists, and this year it was thought they would do the same. However, the players who the south London team once relied so heavily upon haven’t shown up this time around and Chelsea are floundering down in 10th.
Bellerin has had a fantastic season and the fact that he’s not only taken to his defensive responsibilities but helped with our attack as well makes him hugely important.
