On the face of it, sure. Pulisic’s 9 targets and 4 assists in simply 25 video games outweighs Jota’s seven targets and one help whereas at Wolves.
‘However Chelsea are a greater group’. The Blues solely completed seven factors above Wolves, however I’ll reply your cries.
Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish has an equal score to Jota with 80 OVR. Grealish nonetheless outscored the Portuguese ahead regardless of enjoying the season in a relegation battle.
Regardless of the stats suggesting that there are different LW with a better output within the Premier League, Jota’s type to this point this season has been distinctive.
Jota has seven targets already, together with three within the Premier League and a hattrick towards Atalanta within the Champions League.
The 23-year-old appears to save lots of his finest type for European competitions as he scored two hattricks in final season’s Europa League.
