5 unique Premier League records in the last decade
#4 Through balls - Cesc Fabregas (359)
The Spanish midfielder has successfully completed 359 through balls which is the highest in the league. David Silva is second in the list with 268 through balls which is very much less than Fabregas' current record. The stats further reveal that the Chelsea midfielder has completed a whopping 110 through balls in the 2010/11 season alone which is more than double of what second in the list - Andrey Arshavin completed during the season.
Fabregas has been one of the best midfielders in the last decade proving his potential at two top clubs in the Premier League. He started his career in England at Arsenal where he spent eight seasons before moving to Spanish giants Barcelona for a fee of £35 million. His second spell in the Premier League came in the form of a transfer to Chelsea for around £30 million and he has now established himself as an integral part of their line-up.
Fabregas' best season came in 2009/10 in which he scored 15 goals and assisted 13 during the course of the season. He has made 322 appearances in the Premier League, scoring 49 goals and assisting 108, establishing himself as one of the best midfielders in the world.
