West Ham United ace Aaron Cresswell has created more big chances in the Premier League this season than Liverpool trio Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, Manchester City duo Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling and Leicester City ace James Maddison.
That’s according to premierleague.com.
Cresswell, 31, has been in sensational form for the Hammers this season.
The former Ipswich Town ace has seven assists to his name in 29 Premier League games for West Ham.
He should consider himself very unlucky not to have been called up to the England national team by Gareth Southgate last week.
Cresswell has been a key player for David Moyes at the London Stadium this season. And he has been a driving force behind the Hammers’ rise up to fifth place in the league.
Crazy Aaron Cresswell stat eclipses Salah, Mane, Mahrez, Sterling and co
The 31-year-old has played a major role in the final third for West Ham this season.
The left-back has created nine big chances premierleague.com. Incredibly that’s more than Liverpool’s Mo Salah (7), Sadio Mane (7) and Roberto Firmino (6), Manchester City duo Riyad Mahrez (7) and Raheem Sterling (7) and Leicester City ace James Maddison (4).
Cresswell’s delivery from set-pieces this season has been second to none. Sure, his defensive work leaves a lot to be desired at times. But the input he has had in the final third more than makes up for that.
The Liverpool-born ace has certainly improved beyond all recognition this season. He looks like a completely different player to the one who struggled last term.
And David Moyes deserves huge credit for that.
Hopefully Aaron continues his fine form between now and the end of the season with West Ham continuing their push for a top four spot.
