5 dribbles, 5 crosses, 110 touches - Norwich talent causes Leeds problems but frustrates fans

Norwich City

Norwich and England Under-21 star Nathan Redmond divided opinion during his side's 1-1 Championship draw with Leeds.

Norwich City's Nathan Redmond certainly dazzled in the Premier League last season. Despite relegation from the top flight, Norwich could boast a handful of solid positives from their campaign. Young Redmond was certainly one of them.

But the 20-year-old all too often lacked an end product. For all his skill on the ball, Redmond was wasteful in front of goal and made too many wrong decisions in the final third.

That inconsistency showed against Leeds United last night.

Indeed, as Opta stats show, Redmond won five dribbles against the Yorkshire side, the joint-highest total of any Championship player on the night. He also completed 25 final-third passes, another tally that was one of the best in the league - and took 110 touches, the third-highest amount on the day.

And his five accurate crosses - and four chances created - led to a goal as Russell Martin headed home his corner.

But fans were nevertheless frustrated with the 20-year-old. Redmond was accused of slowing up Norwich's play far too often...

So how do you solve a problem like Redmond?
