Kenedy matching Chelsea pal Hazard at Newcastle in dribble stats

Chelsea winger Kenedy is proving among the Premier League's best dribblers at Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says the Brazilian has made 10 successful dribbles so far this season according to whoscored.com. That's the joint third highest total of any player in the division.

Only Eden Hazard (14) and Adama Traoré (12) have made more.

However, Traoré has played far fewer minutes than both Kenedy and Hazard. Traoré has only been on the pitch for a combined total of 91 minutes compared to Hazard's 223.That means his successful dribbles have come at the rate of one every 7.6 minutes. That's the best record of any player to have played at least 90 minutes.
