Stats: Chelsea target is BETTER than BOTH established centre-backs

It had been reported on Friday that Chelsea had seen a £20m bid for Everton defender John Stones rejected.

The Blues don’t have a particularly good record with developing young players over the years, with several of their academy graduates moving on before they’d even been given a chance.

However, a set of stats emerged this afternoon showing exactly why the Blues have dispelled an interest in the 21-year-old.

Put simply – he’s better than both John Terry and Gary Cahill.

Chelsea were able to boast the Premier League’s stingiest defence last term, conceding just 32 goals on their march to the title.

But Terry, now 34, can’t have too much more form of this kind left in him and Jose Mourinho would be smart to source out a replacement.

Stones has made huge strides over the past 12 months, and judging by the numbers below, he’d be in with more than a chance of disposing either of the England internationals.
