Quiz Question of the Week
Q: Which Manchester City player has created 35 chances in the UEFA Champions League this season, 12 more than the player with the next most (Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski – 23)?
A: Jack Grealish has created 35 chances for in this season’s competition, the most by an English player in a season that Opta has on record (2003-04 onwards) and most by any player since Dusan Tadic in 2018-19 for Ajax (37). Grealish has also carried the ball the furthest distance of any player (3,208m) – indeed, it is more than Inter’s top-two most prolific ball carriers combined (Nicolò Barella, 1,558m & Alessandro Bastoni, 1,228m, combined 2,786m).
