Cesc Fabregas, on Saturday evening, finally scored his 50th Premier League goal. However, it didn’t come as easy or quickly as he probably hoped. He had to wait eight months to get the all important goal, and enter the history books.
The last time Fabregas had scored prior to Saturday evening was in August against Everton. It took him another eight months to find the back of the net, and what a way to do so.
Fabregas’ goal against Swansea was a very exciting one – a curled effort sent straight to the left roof of Fabianski’s post, after a sensational pass from talisman Eden Hazard. It was a goal worthy of breaking the Spaniard’s drought.
With that goal, Fabregas has also made history. He has now joined the likes of wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard and Ryan Giggs as the only players ever in the EPL to score 50 goals and 100 assists. However, he is the only player of non- British origin to do so, and joins Fernando Torres and Diego Costa as the only non- British players to score 50 goals or more in the EPL. I think it is amazing, and worth celebrating.
To think that this milestone comes at a time when Fabregas seems to be struggling for form makes it all the more interesting, and who knows, hopefully it will push him to score and assist even more before he leaves.
We will be welcoming Liverpool to Stamford Bridge next weekend, it wouldn’t be a bad time to continue his scoring/ assisting.
