Leeds United midfielder Brenden Aaronson in league of his own as stats emerge

Leeds United have been miserable in recent months, but one player who has been the epitome of consistency is Brenden Aaronson.

The Whites signed the 22-year-old attacking midfielder in the summer for a fee of £24.7m, as per Sky Sports, and it can be said that he has been a stellar signing for the club.

He may have scored just one goal and an assist so far, but his creativity in the middle ranks high among the players outside the top six.

According to the stats from The Other 14, Aaronson has an enviable stat when it comes to creating chances. He has managed 20 chances (set-pieces not included), averaging 1.76 per game.

While Alex Iwobi has created more chances than him, it has to be considered that he has played over 100 minutes more than him.

Of the other players who have crossed over 1000 mins of football, no one comes close to the Leeds attacker.

The Whites have gone through a wretched spell of form in recent months. Once they improve on their scoring, Aaronson’s stats will look even better.

The midfielder has got great dribbling skills, and he is someone who makes you feel that he can create out of nothing. No wonder why Ian Wright called him “magnificent” after his performance against Crystal Palace on 10 October.

It also suggests that Leeds made the right decision to sign him. They paid a lot of money for him, and he is repaying that faith. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that he is in a league of his own, and the sky is the limit for him.
