You know when you’ve played a rank average team – there are the obvious signs such as putting 4 past them – then there are the less obvious ones, like an attacking player having 93% passing accuracy. Heung-Min Son’s average in that discipline is 83.3%, which is respectable, but to jump by 10% is a red, or perhaps claret, flag.
Sonny had a heck of a game generally, with 100% success in long passes, 100% success in through passes, and 100% success in back passes. Just two misplaced passes all game is exceptional.
The cherry on Son’s Burnley cake were the 7 key passes; Son is a world-class player – but make no mistake – Burnley had the welcome mat out.
