LEIGHTON BAINES EVERTON 97

MESUT OZIL REAL MADRID 78
SANTI CAZORLA ARSENAL 76

An article in the Daily Mail this week revealed that Leighton Baines has created more chances for his team this season than any other player in Europe.

The Toffee winger has created 97 chances this season, four more than second placed Mathieu Valbuena (Marseille).

The feat is all the more staggering, though, once you go further down the list, and realise the sheer quality of player he has trumed: Steven Gerrard, Francesco Totti, Mesut Ozil, and Santi Cazorla.

Such a consistently brilliant performer, Leighton Baines is undoubtedly one of the most underrated players around.

A sample of Baines’ assists and goals for Everton can be seen on the clip below.
