According to statistics from WhoScored, the record hasn't been touched in the EPL since the start of the 2021/22 season.

Statistics indicate that Kudus fielded 18 out of his 22 passes with an accuracy rate of 82% and registered a shot on target in their game against Chelsea.

Opta also noted that Kudus' dribbling milestone against Chelsea is the most by any player in a game across Europe's big five leagues in 2023-24.

This continues his impressive run in the league since he joined the English top-flight from Ajax this season. The 23-year-old is currently the highest-scoring Ghanaian in West Ham United history.
