Antonio Rudiger returning to Roma in remarkable form

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Antonio Rudiger returns to former club Roma in the Champions League tonight and Oulala.com stats reveal the German has improved massively since his switch to Chelsea in the summer. 
Rudiger made 72 appearances for Roma in Serie A before joining Chelsea in July and has made an impressive start in English football's top flight since his arrival. 
Following Rudiger's opening eight appearances in the Premier League, the 24-year-old has the stats to back up the excellent start he has made to life in a Chelsea shirt. 
We analysed a number of key stats, comparing Rudiger in the Premier League this campaign against his numbers for Roma in Serie A last season and our data shows he has improved in six out of seven main criteria. 

Rudiger is averaging more passes per game (58) for Chelsea than he managed for Roma (51). While he is also completing a higher percentage of those (89% to 83%). 
Defensively, Rudiger has been just as influential. On a per game basis, he has registered more interceptions (1.4 to 1), more blocks (0.8 to 0.3), more clearances (4.8 to 3) and is winning more headers (2.5 to 1.7) for Chelsea than he did at Roma in his final season.
