📉 Yaya Touré's ridiculous 2013-14 Premier League numbers

In full flight, there was almost no stopping Yaya Touré. 

This iconic Ivorian became the embodiment of a perfect modern midfielder, capable of doing pretty much everything on a football pitch, especially when it came to making a telling impact in the big games and in the final third.

🐘 Yaya's 2013-14 EPL stats

  • 🏟 35 appearances
  • ⌚️ 2925 minutes played
  • ⚽️ 20 goals
  • 🅰️ 9 assists
  • 🎯 10 goals from set-pieces
  • 🔮 40 chances created
  • 🥽 2502 passes completed
  • 📉 88% passing accuracy

Simply put, he was a force of nature. No defensive midfielder scores that many goals, yet no offensively-minded playmaker is as physically imposing as he was. To pigeonhole his style is a difficult task. Yaya started out as a box-to-box midfielder, filled in at centre-back in the 2009 Champions League final for Pep Guardiola's ball-playing Barcelona team, but in his final playing days, he was deployed as a purely attacking midfielder. 

Can you name a midfielder in Premier League history who was more domineering than Yaya Touré?
