Another game, another competition, another numerical showdown for you to digest…
Nathan Redmond and Jesus Navas are two of the Premier League’s speediest widemen – but which of them is edging the stats battle so far this season?
Ahead of our FA Cup third round tie at Carrow Road, we’ve teamed up with Opta to find out…
(All stats Premier League only)
The Norwich man edges this first category by just under 300 minutes – Redmond has started 14 games to Navas’s 10.
It’s probably no surprise to see Redmond win our second category seeing as Navas ending a 66-match goal drought for City against Everton on Wednesday night. The Norwich winger enjoyed something of a purple patch in Autumn and can boast four Premier League goals to his name.
Navas gets on the board in our latest head-to-head by virtue of having one more Premier League assist than his Canaries counterpart.
It’s an equaliser! Navas has created a whopping 31 chances for his teammates this season, edging out Redmond by three.
Although he’s yet to score in the Premier League this season, Jesus is more accurate when it comes to working the goalkeeper than Norwich’s promising forward.
Redmond: 50% of shots on target
Navas: 54.55% of shots on target
Passes and accuracy
It’s an unassailable lead now for Jesus as he takes a 4-2 advantage in our stats showdown. The 31-year old has passed the ball on nearly 57 more occasions and has a superior pass completion rate.
Redmond: 553 passes (78.66% successful)
Navas: 611 passes (84.62% successful)
