Hazard and Jorginho set new records

Hazard and Jorginho set new Chelsea records in Newcastle win

August 26, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The pair reached respective milestones in their side's victory over the Magpies.

Chelsea endured a tough afternoon at the St James' Park on Sunday but kept it late to snatch victory against a well composed Newcastle side. The Blues, despite dominating possession from start to finish, only managed to grab their first goal via Eden Hazard's penalty-kick in the 76th minute and fortuitously earned all three points after DeAndre Yedlin – who assisted Joselu for Newcastle's equalizer – scored an own-goal side the 87th-minute.

Hazard, who was adjudged the Man of the Match, reached a new milestone for the Blues. The 27-year-old's spot-kick which aided Chelsea's win took his overall goal tally for the club in the Premier League to 70.

The feat moved the attacking midfielder up the ladder of Chelsea greats as he consequently overtook Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (69 goals) to become third all-time top scorer of the London club. He currently trails Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard, with the pair managing 104 and 147 goals in their respective careers.

Meanwhile, summer signing Jorginho also entered the record books, usurping Cesc Fabregas as the Chelsea player to have the most successful passes. The former Napoli midfielder completed a total of 158 passes against Newcastle, bettering his teammate's record by 14 passes.

To rehash Chelsea's dominance in possession, Jorginho also completed more passes than Newcastle collectively managed throughout the proceeding.
