It is official now. Cesc Fabregas is the assist king. The newly-bought, Spanish maestro midfielder, Cesc Fabregas is in the full flower of his form since returning to the Premier League with Chelsea. The man is a genius. An absolute genius. Only sixteen games and he has already notched up a mammoth of twelve assists. He currently holds the top spot in the assist chart of Barclays Premier League.
‘Cesc Fabregas is playing so well for us. What I like is as a person he is a professional,’ He is a world champion, he comes here to play in the Capital One Cup and plays like that. That is the character I like.’ J. Mourinho
And a new stat, produced by Opta, reveals that Fabregas holds the record of creating most goals in fewer than 250 Premier League appearances ever. And there’s more to him. The assist-king also shares the record of creating most assists in a single season with his former team-mate, Thierry Henry. Fabregas created 20 assists with Arsenal in 2007-2008 season.
Another painful comparison is with Jack Wilshere, the Arsenal midfielder has 11 assists for Gunners in 95 games played, while the Spaniard has 12 in only his 16 epl games with Chelsea.
