Ben Yedder's debut season at Sevilla FC has been a fruitful one. The forward's numbers demonstrate his worth to the team, and he could even have improved on them had he had a more consistent place in the starting line up. The highest number of consecutive league starts he managed was five, a run in which the former Toulouse striker bagged four goals and an assist, including his hat-trick away at Real Sociedad. He also recorded a hat-trick and an assist in the second leg of the cup tie against SD Formentera.
In total, Ben Yedder made 42 appearances in his first season at Sevilla, 26 of which were starts, and he completed 90 minutes just nine times, finishing with figures of 18 goals and six assists. A number of those goals proved crucial, such as his strike at home against Lyon and his brace against Alavés which secured the three points late on. He also scored away in Vitoria, where Sevilla earned a tough point and at home to Celta where he rescued two points after Aspas had equalised.
The forward averages a goal every 126 minutes and is the second most efficient in the league after Morate
The numbers, as well as making him the squad's leading goalscorer in the season just gone, give him an average of a goal every 126 minutes (playing 2,268 minutes in total) at a rate of 4.30 shots per goal. Only Morate, with 15 goals in 26 games, was more efficient in LaLiga.
