7. Tom Trybull – Norwich City (88% Pass Success)
Trybull made the joint bottom least amount of appearances of anyone on this list but may be he should have been played more. He was a brilliant passer this season when he got a chance to play and showed what head coach Daniel Farke wanted out of his new signings. Maybe he’ll get a chance next season.
6. Harrison Reed – Norwich City (88% Pass Success)
Maybe this is why Trybull didn’t get to play as much. The midfielders actually getting to start were also fantastic passers. Reed got the exact same pass success percentage but made far more appearances, showing he was capable of doing this on a regular basis. Norwich certainly have a good base going into next season.
5. Tim Ream – Fulham (88.3% Pass Success)
Oh wait, we have another defender on this list! Ream has shown he is capable in the Premier League before so it’s no surprise that he was great for Fulham this season. But it may surprise many how good a passer he was which is shown in this stat. Fulham were great this season and I’m sure Ream starting attacks from the back is part of why.
4. Jacob Butterfield – Sheffield Wednesday (88.7% Pass Success)
This is odd. Butterfield was hated by Wednesday fans this season and the vats majority were happy to see him return to Derby County at the end of his loan. But Butterfield was a great passer because stats cannot lie. Should Wednesday fans re-evaluate how good he actually is? Having seen him live this season, probably not but don’t ignore that he’s a good passer.
