The England midfielder, restored to the starting XI ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final, cancelled out Christian Benteke's opener with a sweet left-footed effort just after the hour mark before sealing the points - and the record - with close-range effort three minutes from time.

That left him with 203 career goals for the Blues, a fitting landmark forged over 12 years at Stamford Bridge.
