Chelsea ace Timo Werner breaks 10 year-old record

Chelsea ace Timo Werner broke a 10-year record in victory over Fulham on Saturday.

Werner became the first Chelsea star in eight years to reach double figures for goals and assists in a debut season.

A perfectly-weighted through ball to Kai Havertz helped make it 2-0 against Fulham on Saturday as the Blues strengthened their grip on a top-four place.

It meant a tenth assist on the season for Werner, 25, to go with his 11 goals in all competitions.

Despite attracting criticism for his slow start at Stamford Bridge, he has become the first Chelsea player to reach the double-figure mark for both feats since Eden Hazard in 2012-13.

And only four Premier League players had achieved the same so far this season; Son Heung-min, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Harry Kane.
