Wonderful Ward Prowse stats


The reported injury reports surrounding James Ward Prowse are very worrying at this stage of proceedings given his brilliant stats since he arrived at West Ham United.

Our recent addition had immediately won the fans over with some very impressive performances and here’s how he has performed in the three matches he has played

Time on pitch : 260 minutes

Amazing Ward-Prowse stats

Goals: 1

Assists: 3

Shot creating actions: 9

Goal creating actions:4

Progressive passes: 11

Expected assists per game : 1.4 (the highest of any player in the Premier league)

Expected goals per game: 0.29 ( just behind Bowen)

Non-penalty goals and assists: 1.38 ( miles ahead of the second placed Antonio on 0.58)

 Ward-Prowse’s winner from a dead ball situation at Stamford Bridge (0-1) was his last successful strike. It’s a goal that puts him one shy of David Beckham (18), who boasts the most free-kick goals in Premier League history. JWP has now hit 17 free-kick goals in 11 seasons

Also, despite playing for a poor side, the eventually relegated Saints, he still managed three successful strikes from 17 dead-ball situations last term.

A great signing
