Mohammed Kudus: Which metric did the West Ham star top this season?

Seye Omidiora 18:01 - 28.05.2024

The Ghana international ends the 2023-24 season atop one statistic.

Mohammed Kudus thrived in year one at West Ham United, flourishing despite the somewhat disappointing nature of David Moyes' final season at the club.

The Ghana star arrived from Ajax in the summer of 2023 and quickly became one of the club’s most reliable performers in the Premier League

Mohammed Kudus stats

Kudus found the back of the net eight times and set up six assists for West Ham in the 23-24 campaign, outdone only by Jarrod Bowen (16 goals, six assists) for goal contributions. 

Despite Africa Cup of Nations participation, albeit short-lived with the Black Stars, the attacker’s impact at West Ham was obvious as the East London side finished ninth.

The 23-year-old completed 136 dribbles in the concluded Premier League campaign, significantly higher than Jeremy Doku in England's top division.

Across the seven major European leagues, Kudus outdid every player, successfully beating his marker more times than Estoril's Rafik Guitane (108) and Girona's Savinho (104). 

According to Opta, Kudus assisted four goals after driving forward in possession — only Moussa Diaby (five), Anthony Gordon (six), Doku (six) and Ollie Watkins (seven) eclipsed the West Ham man — pointing to the Ghanaian’s end product to back up his skill. 

What comes next for Kudus?

Kudus should feature for Ghana in the post-season World Cup qualifiers against Mali and the Central African Republic before heading off on holiday to recharge his batteries for preseason in July.
