Who are the best passers in the Premier League? There are a number of metrics one could use - total completed passes, key passes, pass percentage, and more.
According to EA Sports, though, Paul Pogba has become the first Premier League player to complete 1,000 passes in the opposition half, connecting 1,029 so far this season.
Who else ranks up there with the world's most expensive player? Here are the top five in the Premier League.

Eden Hazard - 875 passes
Chelsea's dynamo Eden Hazard is known more as a goalscorer than an assist man, but he's completed 875 passes in the opposition half this season, and that's a big reason Chelsea are far and away the best team in the league.

David Silva - 930 passes
It's a bit surprising not to see Kevin De Bruyne on this list, but there's no surprise that David Silva ranks amongst the league's best passers. The little Spaniard has a better eye for a killer pass than just about anyone in the world, and it's not a coincidence he's in the top five in the Prem.

Mesut Ozil - 954 passes
Arsenal's best passer, Mesut Ozil can be just as frustrating as the Gunners themselves. There's no doubting his ability on the ball, though, and he slides into third on the list.
Jordan Henderson - 987 passes
Hendo has run the show for Liverpool this year, for better or for worse. He's settled right into his role as the Reds' midfield general, and his nearly 1,000 passes on the season are a perfect testament to that fact.

Paul Pogba - 1029 passes
Paul Pogba's transfer from Juventus has thrust him even further into the spotlight, and there's been a ton of pressure on his shoulders to perform. The stats don't lie, though, and Manchester United's main man is top of the league when it comes to these passing metrics.
