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.

That number is higher than any other club in the top-flight, with Azpilicueta at the forefront of creating goals — he has netted once this season and also laid on four assists.

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.

Chelsea's win over Watford moves them fourth in the Premier League table, ahead of the Hornets, and six points behind leaders Manchester City.
