When pitched up against some of the Premier League's best central midfielders, it turns out Joe Allen compares pretty favourably.

Indeed, analysing him alongside Matic, Wanyama, Fernandinho and Blind, the Liverpool man tops the pass completion category at 89%, and also creates more chances per game than any of the above players.

While his interception rate is significantly lower than Blind's, Allen certainly holds his own when it comes to the attacking side of play.

So, Liverpool fans, does your Welsh midfielder deserve more game time at Anfield? Let us know.
