Ranked! Top passers in Absa Prem


The 2019//20 Absa Premiership season recently turned five rounds old and the log standings have given a strong indication of what’s to come this season, but what about stand out individuals?

While all attention would naturally be on the league’s top goal scorer Bradley Grobler, who walked away with the Player of the Month prize last week, some individuals have stood out above their peers in other areas of the park too.

While strikers are expected to find the back of the net with regularity, others can also be judged on the ability to find their teammates with passes in the build-up to those goals.

In the gallery above, KickOff.com looks at players who lead the statistics in various passing categories after the first block of Premiership fixtures.

These categories include individuals’ average number of passes per 90 minutes, pass success rate in percentage, average number of passes made in the attacking third per 90 minutes, accuracy percentage of passes in the final third as well as open play crosses per 90 minutes.
