Passing is a task that often appears simple to onlookers, but finding your teammate when under pressure is far more difficult than it seems.
Getting the basics right is a priority for any Premier League team and precise passing gives you a platform on which to build.
Whether it’s sideways, backwards or diagonal; every pass completed counts towards a player’s total.
England’s top tier is home to some of the finest passers in the game. And those skills have been on display once again with the Premier League finally coming to a conclusion last week.
