Despite initially needing time to adjust to life at Chelsea, 23-year-old midfielder Enzo Fernández is finally showcasing his true potential, as evidenced by a recent statistic.

According to the statistics website WhoScored, the Argentine has delivered more accurate long balls in the Premier League since his arrival than any other player, including Manchester City stalwart Kevin De Bruyne.

Enzo Fernández’s arrival at Stamford Bridge coincided with a challenging period for Chelsea, as they endured one of their worst runs in recent history. Currently, the Blues are in 10th place in the Premier League standings.

However, the former Benfica player has begun to establish himself in west London, demonstrated by his remarkable free-kick goal against Aston Villa in the FA Cup. Despite his hefty price tag of €121m, Enzo Fernández has contributed seven goals and one assist in 31 appearances across all competitions this season.

Furthermore, he has led the league with inaccurate long balls since his arrival, surpassing the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes.

The Argentine midfielder has completed an impressive 230 long balls since January 2023, establishing himself as a standout performer in this aspect among his Premier League counterparts.
