Early days yet, but UEFA’s official statistics for the Europa League show Richmond Boakye-Yiadom is the competition’s best player so far this season.

He has an assist, with the highest ranked player on 4.
And, only 2 other players, one on 9 and the other on 11, have better than his 8 shots on targets.
