The Most Dribbled Past Premier League Defenders So Far This Season

The Most Dribbled Past Premier League Defenders So Far This Season

On Saturday afternoon Virgil van Dijk was finally dribbled past to end a run of 50 Premier League games without it happening but who are the players who have been dribbled past most this season so far?

Arsenal's Nicolas Pepe was the man who finally broke a 50 game run by dribbling past Van Dijk during the Premier League game against Liverpool on Saturday evening.

That means the Dutchman is on 0.3 times being dribbled past per game in the league so far this season, but which defenders top the list of most times dribbled past per game? Fortunately WhoScored.com has the answer:

1. Ricardo Pereira (Leicester City) - 3.0

2. Andrew Robertson (Liverpool) - 2.3

Despite their full-backs being dribbled past a combined 3.3 times per game after just three games Liverpool's season has still pretty much picked up from where it ended last season.

After missing out on the title by one point last term Jurgen Klopp's side are the only team with maximum points after three wins from three.

Their defence hasn't been as solid as it was last term though with Klopp's side conceding in all three of their games so far.

Will any defender match Van Dijk' record?
