The midfielder put in a quality display despite his side's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.
Here's how he performed, according to Opta stats...
|Match||Total Passes||Accurate Passes||Pass Success (%)||Final-Third Passes||Successful Final-Third Passes||Final Third Pass Success (%)||Touches||Unsuccessful Touches|
|Yohan Cabaye||C. Palace vs Arsenal||45||42||93%||16||14||87.5%||73||1|
As he is known for the quality of his passing, that seems the best area to start with and the Frenchman was as good as ever on Sunday, misplacing just three passes, a success rate of 93%.
Of his total 45 passes in the game, 16 were made in the final third, with just two of those in that area of the pitch going astray, meaning he enjoyed a final third pass success rate of 87.5%.
Just as important as his passing was his quality on the ball and, here, Cabaye excelled the most, with him enjoying 73 touches throughout the 90 minutes and just one being unsuccessful, a success rate of 98.7%.
Based on these statistics, it was a fine display of passing from Cabaye despite his side’s eventual 2-1 defeat.
With passing like he showed on Sunday, though, it’s not hard to imagine he’ll be dominating a number of Premier League midfields this season as a key to Crystal Palace’s hopes of a successful finish.
