Centre-back proves more prolific than Barcelona star.
An amazing stat come to light this week that proves that Chelsea defender John Terry has been more prolific in front of goal than Barcelona’s midfield magician Andres Iniesta.
The veteran netted twice recently against Stoke and West Ham, and the goals have now elevated him above the Barcelona star.
Iniesta, who is considered one of the world’s best players, is famed for his ability to get forward, but when it comes to scoring goals, Terry beats him easily.
Terry now outscores the star by six goals, having scored 58 goals, whilst Iniesta is still on 52.
However, he still sits in second place to former Everton star David Unsworth for most goals scored in a season by a defender.
John Terry has now scored 36 Premier League goals, the only defender to score more in the history of the competition is David Unsworth (38).
