Bruno tops chance-creation chart

Wednesday 18 May 2022 12:06

Bruno Fernandes remains a clear leader in one particular field as we approach the final weekend of the Premier League season.

While it has been a difficult season for the Reds, our no.18 has continued to carve out openings for his team-mates with his bold approach in midfield.

Statistics released by The Opta Analyst confirm his level of creativity has remained exceptional as he looks to find his colleagues in goalscoring positions.


Fernandes tops the list for open-play chance creation and the overall tally when secondary chances are also taken into account.

The Portugal international's figure of 109 beats second-placed Martin Odegaard's 102, with the Arsenal playmaker the only other player to break into three figures.

Manchester City's Bernardo Silva and Mohamed Salah of Liverpool are next on the list.

Hopefully, Bruno can add to his figures when facing Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in Sunday's final game of our campaign.


2. Martin Odegaard (Arsenal) - 102
3. Bernardo Silva (Man City) - 99
4. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) - 93
5. Kevin De Bruyne (Man City) - 92
