Danny Rose achieves stat only one other defender has managed all season

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose achieved a stat in the game against Chelsea that only one other Premier League defender has managed this season.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane may getting all of the plaudits this morning for his brace against Chelsea yesterday, but another Spurs star, Danny Rose, produced a unique achievement during the game.

Rose scored and produced an assist for another goal, becoming only the second Premier League defender to accomplish that achievement this season.

The other? Calum Chambers of Tottenham’s arch rivals, Arsenal.

Rose cemented his place as Tottenham’s starting left-back earlier this season, despite heavy pressure from Ben Davies who arrived from Swansea.

Davies impressed in the first team while Rose was out of action through injury and the England man deserves praise for getting back into the team ahead of the Welshman quickly on his return.

Rose looks like a transformed player at Spurs this season and if he can keep accumulating positive performances and adding records to his game, the Spurs back four will be in very good shape.
