Arteta & Cazorla ‘best passers’ in the Premier League
Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla are joint top Premier League passers, according to EA Sports Player Performance Index.
The Spanish duo have completed the most passes in their opponent’s half so far, with summer signing Cazorla averaging less than two minutes per pass completed.
Cazorla completed passes in opponent’s half: 384
Arteta completed passes in opponent’s half: 357
French frontman Olivier Giroud has struggled for goals since joining from Montpellier in June. His 18 attempts at goal so far have resulted in one goal, although just 44% of his shots were on target.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has seen his side lose their last two games and will be hoping that the Spaniards’ successful pass completion rate can be converted into three points tomorrow against Queens Park Rangers.
