Chelsea’s supporters should be excited by the Armando Broja stats circulating after latest Southampton goal

 

A head-turning pair of statistics surrounding the form of on-loan Chelsea talent Armando Broja have piqued attentions online this evening.

Maupay at the death

Broja, of course, was back in action earlier today.

On the back of a 3-game winless streak, Southampton welcomed Brighton & Hove Albion to St. Mary’s, eyeing a much-needed return to winning ways in the Premier League.

And, with just seconds remaining in the clash, the hosts appeared well on their way to precisely that.

After the aforementioned Broja opened the afternoon’s scoring inside half an hour, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men maintained their advantage deep into the 7th minute of injury-time.

In heartbreaking scenes for all associated with the club, however, Southampton were ultimately pegged back, as Neal Maupay, for the 2nd week running, secured a point for Brighton at the death:

Brilliant Broja

As alluded to above, though, amid an otherwise hugely disappointing afternoon for Southampton, one member of the Saints’ squad, again, continued to impress.

The player in question? Armando Broja.

Hitman Broja is of course currently in the midst of a loan spell at St. Mary’s, after being farmed out by parent club Chelsea for the 2nd season running.

The stats to have surfaced on the back of his latest strike versus Brighton, though, will no doubt turn plenty of heads back in west London on Saturday evening.

As per Opta, the Albanian youngster has now managed more goals than any other U20 Premier League player across all competitions this season, whilst also standing as the 2nd-youngest player to ever net in his first three home PL appearances:
