Revealed: Newcastle’s top five dribblers in the Premier League

Rafa Benitez knows that if he is to keep Newcastle in the Premier League then it will be built on defensive diligence and organisation.

For that reason, he has been reluctant to give his players too much freedom to play with this season. Nevertheless, the current signs are that it will work.

One thing Benitez’s style of management, which focuses largely on team cohesion and collective responsibility, doesn’t allow for much of is dribbling.

That requires a break-out of individual flair and Benitez is notoriously reluctant to offer that to his players, even the ones that might be able to go and win him a game.

With that in mind, Football FanCast have taken a look at Newcastle’s most prolific dribblers so far this season.

We wanted to see who would come out on top and also how much freedom they’ve been given to complete take-ons.
