Otamendi breaks Premier League record

Otamendi breaks Premier League record
Nicolas Otamendi has broken the record for the number of completed passes in a single Premier League campaign.

The City centre-back, selected in the 2017-18 PFA Team of the Year, has registered 2,902 passes, which is more than any other player has managed since data began being collected in the 2006-07 season.

It eclipses the previous best of 2,829 set by Cesc Fabregas in 2015-16.

Given Otamendi has achieved his number with five matches still to play is remarkable and means he is on course to become the first player to break the 3,000 mark!

Well done, Nico!
