The Blues' defenders have scored 19 times since the beginning of last season, more than any other club

Chelsea came from behind to win 4-2 against Watford, and continue a truly amazing record in the Premier League.

Cesar Azpilicueta scored in the 87th minute to put the Blues ahead, marking the 19th time a defender has scored for the Blues since the start of last season.

This season, Azpilicueta and David Luiz have both scored once, while Marcos Alonso has two goals to his name — both scored in the club's early-season 2-1 win over Tottenham.
