100% success in two key areas: John Stones impresses in Everton draw

The defender once again put in a top performance for the Toffees to help them to a clean sheet against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League.

Despite Everton’s 0-0 draw with Swansea City being a huge frustration for the Blues, there are several positives to take from the game.

One of those is defender John Stones, who after an imperious display against Diego Costa and Chelsea in the Toffees' 3-1 win last weekend, put in yet another impressive display against the Swans in the Premier League.

But just how good was Stones in the draw at the Liberty Stadium? We decided to take a look at his stats from the game.

First and foremost, Stones’ clearances were on the money throughout the game as he enjoyed a 100% success rate in that area, while his headed clearances were similarly effective - again a 100% success rate.

After dealing with Costa last weekend, the defender had another tough afternoon on his hands up against Bafetimbi Gomis. However, he firmly came out on top, winning four of his five duels in the game and losing just one - a success rate of 80%.

Stones is now well known for being extremely comfortable on the ball, and this game was no different, with his passing being on top form once again. He enjoyed 51 passes throughout the game, with 47 of them being accurate, a success rate of 92%.

So then, another impressive performance from Stones, who helped his side Everton achieve their third clean sheet on the road this season.
