Chelsea’s deadly John Terry equals Premier League record
Chelsea defender John Terry is equal with David Unsworth as the Premier League's all-time top-scoring defender
John Terry’s goal at the King Power Stadium in Chelsea’s 3-1 away win over Leicester City on Wednesday night was the 34-year-old’s fourth Premier League goal of the season.
However, more significantly, the strike now puts Terry equal with David Unsworth as the Premier League’s all-time top goal scoring defenders, both players now sit level on 38 overall.
The feat is made more impressive due to the fact that Unsworth was a regular penalty taker, with many of his goals coming from the spot.
The top five goal-scoring defenders also features two more penalty takers in Ian Harte and Leighton Baines, as well as Terry’s former team mate, William Gallas.
The Chelsea skipper has now scored in each of his last 15 seasons and after a contract extension was agreed in March, it is only a matter of time until Terry takes the honour as the Premier League’s top goal scoring defender ever.
