Stats measuring goals, assist and build-up play. The things that matter most in the final third.
As the stats show, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes are a lethal combination and their partnership provides an almighty match-up for Tottenham’s highly rated Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.
Maybe I have my red specs on writing this but I wouldn’t swap our two for any duo in the Premier League. Rashford in 23 and Fernandes has been one of the best players in Europe the past year.
Bruno Fernandes seems equally spread out between the three categories, while Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin seems to just finish moves.
An interesting way of compiling stats (H/t The Athletic):
Fernandes and Rashford just edging Kane and Son when it comes to overall involvement in goals this season.
Can also see DCL is almost exclusively just finishing moves, and Hojbjerg’s importance to Spurs is notable from midfield. pic.twitter.com/pd6nZybcfb

I’m exciting to see how this chart will look at the end of the season.
