Incredible Stats Show Jack Grealish Is The Premier League's Best Winger This Season
Jack Grealish's passing stats from this season show the Aston Villa captain is in a league of his own right now.
Grealish is given a free role by his boyhood club and regularly helps dictate play from out wide or even centrally.
A Reddit user has compiled a graph of every Premier League winger's productivity in terms of key passes and expected assists - with the 25-year-old clear of everyone.
Grealish ranks right at the top with expected assists, while only Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi has better key passes per 90.
The Blues academy graduate starts far less games than Grealish however and has a smaller sample size.
This season, Grealish has six goals and 12 assists in 22 appearances and it's seen pundits praise him as one of the division's top stars.
Rio Ferdinand provided punditry for BT Sport over the weekend and when asked about his standout performer, he replied: "Grealish. I love watching him.
"If I'm going to watch a player and I'm putting him at No 10, I want to see someone drift past people, draw people to them, create space for other players and then get assists and get goals.
