Top 5 Passers From Gameweek 9 Including Stars From Arsenal And Mancheser United

The Premier League was lit up by the performance of a Dutch master for Newcastle United in this game week, Georginio Wijnaldum scored four for the Magpies as they recorded their first win of the season and also reduced the pressure on their manager Steve McClaren.

Another player who did extremely well was Moussa Sissoko, who was involved in almost all the goals scored by Wijnaldum and recorded a hat-trick of assists as well. His passing was one of the best in this game week and we list out the top five passers from game week 9 of the Premier League season.

Thanks to stats from, we would be looking at the best passers in terms of accuracy from this set of games.

Santi Cazorla

The King at the heart of the Arsenal midfield, Cazorla is getting better as the season goes by and he was at his best in the 3-0 win at Watford. The Spanish maestro conducted the Arsenal symphony extremely well and completed 91 passes in the game.

An accuracy of 93% for the Spanish midfielder certainly makes for great reading not only for him but also for Arsenal as they face crunch games against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League.

Manuel Lanzini

The unknown Argentine in West Ham is certainly making a great name for himself, Lanzini was brilliant against Liverpool a few weeks ago and he was at his best this weekend as well.

He had a passing accuracy of 93% in the game and notched up 84 successful passes in the game. He also recorded an assist in the game and had a couple of key passes; certainly things are going better for Lanzini and West Ham this season.

Morgan Schneiderlin

The French midfielder was one of the stars in the 3-0 win for Manchester United over Everton. The Toffees did seem to be a bit below par, but credit must be given to Louis van Gaal and his set up as United dominated the game.

Schneiderlin might have capped off his performance with a goal, his first for the club, but his passing was excellent as well. The midfielder completed 68 passes with an astounding passing accuracy of 97%, an unbelievable number to be perfectly honest.

Phil Jagielka

Jagielka’s team certainly were the second best as Everton slumped to a heavy defeat at the hands of Manchester United. The Everton central defender though can claim to have one of the best performances in terms of passing.

The English defender completed 71 passes in the loss against Manchester United and had a success rate of 86%; his average passing length was 26 metres, the highest in the Premier League this game week.

Francis Coquelin

The other Arsenal star to make it into the top five passers from this game week, Coquelin as ever, was highly impressive in the midfield of the Gunners. The French defensive midfielder might be known for his tackling and robust defence, but he was one of the best passers from this game week with an accuracy of 94%.

He completed a total of 67 passes in the game and the average length of each pass was 18 metres. Arsenal fans must be pleased seeing him star for the team time and again.
