Jack Grealish and Allan Saint-Maximin a class apart in creating most chances – New analysis

Allan Saint-Maximin is exciting to watch.

A player who is very quick and always to take his opponent on, the kind of crowd pleaser that Newcastle fans have been crying out for.

However, does he have an end product?

New analysis suggests that is very much the case…

A table has now been published by ‘The Other 14’ (who specialise on stats/tables etc on the 14 clubs who aren’t the ‘Big Six’) which shows the most successful Premier League players when it comes to creating chances.

As you can see, in this list of players both Jack Grealish and Allan Saint-Maximin are the stand out stars.

Grealish has missed recent Villa games through injury and it won’t do NUFC chances any harm if that is still the case in 11 days time.

Maybe surprisingly Christian Atsu is the 6th most productive of the ‘Other 14’ when it comes to creating chances.

Atsu has two assists so far this season and as the table shows, he has created nine chances in his 453 minutes of football, two less than ASM.

At times, he looks like he has what it takes to be a Premier League regular but Christian Atsu needs to produce more often and be involved in games more.
