Alberto Moreno is maybe the best attacking fullback in the Premier League, based on the fact that he’s created more chances for his team-mates than any other.
That’s more than Arsenal’s Spanish pair Nacho Monreal or Hector Bellerin, Manchester City’s Aleksandar Kolorov or Manchester United’s Matteo Darmian.

According to WhoScored, Moreno’s averaged 2.3 key passes per match this season, but they’ve only resulted in one assist – although he did make a lovely goal for Jordon Ibe in the 6-1 Southampton pummelling.
This perhaps says more about the finishing ability of our attackers than it does Moreno, who’s been superb going forward since Day One.
This term, Norwich’s Robbie Brady is his nearest rival with 1.9 key passes per match, while Koloarov’s in third with 1.7.
The statistic about Moreno though doesn’t tell us anything new, just that he’s improving. The feisty Spaniard loves bursting forward and constantly provides us an overlapping option. His end-product can still be improved, but when you consider he’s 23-years-old and topping these tables we can’t fault his creative product.
Once Moreno eradicates the odd defensive lapse in his game, we’ll be talking about one of the best in the country.
