West Ham's top five passers of the season - Including 19-year-old

Upton Park

Revealing the West Ham United players with the best passing accuracy so far this season.

West Ham United are enjoying a campaign to remember, with their impressive summer signings gelling well with the more familiar faces at Upton Park.

The Hammers are currently seventh in the Premier League, and they look a completely different proposition than they did last season, due in no small part to the goal-scoring threat of Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia and the midfield control of Alex Song. 

But with the international break upon us, we took a look at the most accurate passers at West Ham in the league this season, and there were some interesting results.

As you can see from the table below, Matt Jarvis has achieved the impressive feat of a 100 per cent passing accuracy. The only trouble is, he has only made four passes!

Second in the table is Ravel Morrison, who showed what a supremely talented player he can be by achieving a 92 per cent passing accuracy in his 33-minute cameo for the Hammers against Southampton prior to his loan move to Cardiff City.

As a result of Jarvis's brief time on the pitch and Morrison's temporary departure, we have actually drawn up two tables - one for those who feel it is right that the two players are included, and another who want to see the stats based on those who have played a little more regularly.

  Total PassPassing AccuracyAppsMins
Matthew Jarvis 4 100% 1 5
Ravel Morrison 25 92% 1 33
Diego Poyet 33 90.91% 2 82
Carl Jenkinson 65 90.77% 4 158
James Collins 34 88.24% 2 77

In the second table, Diego Poyet leads the way with 90.91 per cent, while loan signing Carl Jenkinson is second, the final player to exceed 90 per cent.

In the second table, Mauro Zarate and Winston Reid are included, with the New Zealand international making by far the most passes of anyone included - 233 - and racking up 630 minutes on the pitch to date.

Winston Reid 233 85.84% 7 630

The campaign is long and West Ham will face tough challenges as they look to maintain their outstanding start; but with their impressive youngsters and savvy summer signings all hitting their stride, this could be a campaign to remember for all the right reasons at the Boleyn Ground.
