Chelsea scored four past Southampton on Tuesday night, and the win coincidentally marked a personal milestone for four Chelsea players.

Diego Costa came back from a goal drought to score his 50th Premier League goal to make it 3-1 early in the second half. His second goal marked his 51st league goal for Chelsea.

Gary Cahill scored the second goal just before halftime, and it was his 26th top-flight strike, and it was a strike which means excluding penalties, the only defender to have scored more Premier League goals in history is John Terry.

Cesc Fabregas assisted Diego Costa to score his 50th Premier League goal and the assist took the midfielder to 103 Premier League assists in total, one ahead of Lampard, meaning he is now second in the all-time chart behind Ryan Giggs.

For Eden Hazard, he opened the scoring against the Saints, and the goal was his 15th Premier League goal of the campaign, his best tally in the competition since he arrived in England in 2012.
