Like Wolves, the Hornets had a great 2018/19 campaign which collapsed after they qualified for the FA Cup Final and diverted their focus there.

Although Watford’s defensive stats of just seven clean sheets doesn’t make for great reading, Holebas’ attacking threat more than makes up for it. A constant menace down their left flank, the Greek also takes the majority of set pieces such as corners and free kicks for the Hornets and his delivery is absolutely lethal.

Only Digne (280) attempted more crosses than his 209 and no defender contributed more than his seven assists, almost double that of next place Monreal who had four. He also has an eye for goal and scored three last season.

It is these attacking numbers that make the Greek almost fixture proof and very explosive. However, he does have a knack for picking up yellow cards, accruing 33 over the last three seasons.
