Stoke City's Chelsea loanee, Victor Moses, has been the most accurate crosser in the Premier League this season.

Victor Moses is the most accurate crosser in the Premier League.

The Stoke City player has completed 37.5% of his crosses into the box and he is clearly benefitting from the increased physicality which he has to aim at at the Britannia Stadium.

Of all the players in England who have made over 30 crosses this season in the top-flight, Moses has found a team-mate with the most and it is a record which he will be very proud of. 

The Nigerian international, who is on loan at Chelsea, struggled whilst on a temporary move to Liverpool last season, but he has made a positive impression in the Potteries.

Although Stoke have worked hard to play a more aesthetically pleasing brand of football in recent times, the strengths which were instilled in them by Tony Pulis, during his previous regime, are still evident.

The ability to get on the end of crosses is something which the Potters have made a success on and Moses' delivery is meaning they are continuing to be able to profit from this.

With the towering Peter Crouch and the powerful Mame Biram Diouf to aim at, Moses has been a potent outlet when he gets in range. 

The effectiveness of his partnership in attack at Stoke which highlighted on Monday night, when his cross to Crouch set-up the winning goal against Newcastle United.

It was an important win for the Potters, which has lifted them up the table, and they will be looking to build on that now.

The squad at Hughes' disposal is packed with talent this season and if Moses can keep providing the quality of service which he is at the moment then it should be a very productive season in an attacking sense.

The only player close to rivalling him in West Ham United's Stewart Downing, whilst Newcastle United's Jack Colback and Crystal Palace's Jason Puncheon are further back.
