Tom Cairney has been one of the better midfielders in the Championship for some time. He impressed at Hull City, before improving further during two seasons at Blackburn Rovers and has produced arguably his best form to date since signing for Fulham at the start of last term.
The Cottagers boast one of the strongest attacks in the Championship, netting the third-most times of any side this term whilst producing the most efforts at goal, and the 26-year-old has been instrumental in that as their chief playmaker.
Indeed, as our infographic shows, in addition to bagging six goals himself, Cairney has created a whopping 80 chances this season with six being converted into assists. He’s also completed 45 dribbles and produced a 93% pass completion rate – no easy feat when you’re making so many in the final third.
So when Tottenham come to town in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup today, Cairney will be the strongest candidate to inspire an upset against the Premier League outfit. Spurs fans be warned!
