The South African-born midfielder has registered a healthy 86 per cent pass completion, created 24 chances and registered one assist for the Cherries this term.

Everton’s Gareth Barry sits second in the table having completed 1,055 successful passes.

Last season’s top passer in the Premier League, Fàbregas, finds himself third this season. At this stage in the 2014/15 season, the Spaniard had successfully completed 1,373 passes. However, after the opening 20 games this term, the 28-year-old has only managed to register 1,048 successful passes.
