Ji is the pass master

posted in: Chelsea FC Women | 0

Chelsea’s Ji So-Yun (pictured) has made more passes in the opposition half than any other FA WSL player this season, according to the latest batch of Opta statistics released by the Football Association. Her tally of 266 means that – despite not playing every match for the Blues – she is the reigning attacking pass queen of the women’s game.

The Blues travel to West Ham on Sunday afternoon in the league, fresh from the morale-boosting 6-0 away victory against Fiorentina in the Women’s Champions League.

In other released stats, Jordan Nobbs (Arsenal) and Gemma Davison (Reading, and formerly Chelsea) are both one assist away from becoming the fifth player in FA WSL history to reach 20.

Jill Scott (Manchester City) needs one more win to become the sixth player to reach 60 league wins.

Gemma Davison has played more through balls than any other player this season (5). 8% of her successful passes this season have been through balls.

Aoife Mannion (Birmingham) has blocked more shots than any other player in The FA WSL this season (8), while Liverpool’s Sophie Bradley leads the league in headed clearances this season with 23. Arsenal’s Pauline Peyraud-Magnin has made more successful sweeper-keeper interceptions outside her box than any other goalkeeper this season (4), but Birmingham’s Ann-Katrin Berger has saved more big chances than any other goalkeeper, with eight.
