86.5% pass success rate, 5 assists: The Norwich City ace destined for the Premier League



It has been a mixed season for Norwich City in the Sky Bet Championship, with Daniel Farke failing to mount the play-off push that many had expected at Carrow Road this season.

The Canaries currently sit 13th in the Championship table in mid-February, eight points adrift of the top-six after a recent improvement in results.

However, despite an upturn in form, a play-off push still looks unlikely, with Norwich far too inconsistent during the first-half of the Championship season.

Despite a mixed season, there has been one player at Carrow Road more than deserving of praise – James Maddison, who on Saturday grabbed his 10th goal of the season in the 1-1 draw with Derby County.

Maddison’s goal tally is impressive at 10, and added to that the playmaker has also had a hand in five other goals, as we at FLW assess his stats so far this season.

The 21-year-old averages 2.4 shots per game, as well as 2.6 key passes every time he takes to the field, highlighting his impact in the final third.

Norwich also benefit from Maddison’s excellent passing, with the youngster averaging 47.4 passes per game, at a success rate of 86.5%.
