STEVE COOK: Best defender in the Premier League ‘clearance’ dept

By -

Once again Steve Cook tops the stats charts and outdoes his Premier League defensive counterparts.

John Stones, Gary Cahill, Laurent Koscielny, Chris Smalling, not one of them can beat Steve Cook when it comes to getting the ball out of thier own half. He is the clearance king according to stats from Oulala.

But, does this mean he is a great defender (he is) or the more we thought about does it mean that the oppostion are getting far too many balls into our area? We’ll get back to you on that one.
