Top playmaker: Advanced stats rank Harvey Elliott within top 3 passers in Championship
7

The 17-year-old is enjoying a brilliant loan campaign with Blackburn Rovers.

  • Compared to the players who have played at least 500 minutes in the Championship, Elliott ranks 1st for key passes, 3rd for expected assists per 90 minutes and 4th for smart passes.
  • Elliott's data is represented with the blue dot - look how far ahead he is from most of the competition!

  • Wyscout defines smart pass as: "There has to be some idea in the pass, something creative, when the player is cutting the lines and winning some advantage for his teammates with this pass, leading them in a good position to attack. The pass should be between 2-3 opposite players."
  • All of this points to one thing - the loan move is going really well for the teenager who is putting up some insane passing numbers at just 17 years of age.
  • If he can improve his finishing, the midfielder will be one of the most complete players in the Championship - and we hope the Premier League too soon!
