There are so many wonderful passers of the ball in the Premier League, but you’ll be shocked to find out that Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta, was the best passer of the ball by a distance, in the Premier League during the weekend.
Azpilicueta has shown that he isn’t just solid as a defender, but is also comfortable on the ball.
The stats – courtesy of EA Sports – show that Azpilicueta completed 103 passes in the 1-1 draw against Burnley. Note that he didn’t attempt 103 passes, but he actually played 103 successful passes.
He was the only player to reach triple figure during the weekend, as Paul Pogba and David Silva made 84 and 77 passes respectively.
