That total is more than he has managed in his last two seasons combined after being given a new lease of life under Antonio Conte.

He now sits atop the list of assist makers at Chelsea, with Pedro just behind having been directly involved in creating five goals himself.

And only Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne has managed more assists in the English top-flight this season with seven.
