Chelsea’s Fabregas enters Guinness Book Of World Record

Cesc Fabregas has earned a Guinness World Record for becoming the fastest player to reach 100 Premier League assists.

The Chelsea midfielder brought up his ton on December 31, 2016, setting up Willian in a 4-2 win over Stoke.

It took Fabregas 293 matches to achieve 100 assists, 74 matches sooner than second-place Ryan Giggs who needed 367 appearances.

“I’m not the fastest, I’m not the strongest, I’m not the most flexible, I don’t jump high,” said the former Arsenal midfielder.

“But to achieve this record in my career is one of the proudest things in my job because it is my job and I did it well.”

Fabregas also holds the record for most volley passes in 30 seconds by a pair – hitting 15 with Jamie Redknapp on Sky 1’s ‘A League of their Own’ in 2017.

The Spaniard, however, isn’t having the best of time under Maurizio Sarri.

Fabregas has featured just four times and is yet to start a Premier League game.

Atletico Madrid is among potential suitors for the ex-Arsenal skipper.
