As the Opta Stats table below shows, the former Arsenal prospect has created as many 34 chances in nine Championship appearances for the Reds so far this season.

The former Liverpool and Blackpool prospect has created as many as 29 chances in nine league games, as Derby continue to push for a top-two finish in the Championship this campaign.

The 30-year-old former Cardiff City winger has created an astonishing 45 chances in 10 league matches for Rovers.

Alan Judge of Brentford is third in the table (31 chances created), with Charlton Athletic's Johann Berg Gudmundsson just two places behind him in fifth (29 chances created).
