Cesar Azpilicueta has now set up six goals for fellow Spaniard Álvaro Morata this season, making their link-up the most prolific in the Premier League.

When Morata fired a powerful header past Brighton’s Matt Ryan in the first
minute of the second half at Stamford Bridge, he brought up his 10th
Premier League goal of the season and the sixth time his international
colleague Azpilicueta had supplied the pass. No other duo have been as
prolific when it comes to assists for the same goal scorer in England’s top
flight this season.

Vardy in an echo of Leicester City’s 2015-16 title triumph.
