There are lies, damned lies and football statistics!

And these days there is no hiding from them, with fans, clubs and indeed the media able to drag up just about any metric from any number of stats websites.

Renowned outlet whoscored.com are one of the most widely utilised and is used by the EFL to decide their ‘team of the week’ sides, in which Wednesday players are regulars.

The site uses data from a wide range of metrics to come up with match ratings for each and every league match played in the EFL and while no system is infallible – the eye test is often more reliable – it does give an outline guide as to form and contribution.

Here’s a run-down of Wednesday’s best performing players as per whoscored ratings. We’ve omitted players to have played fewer than 500 minutes in the season so far, so no place for Tyreeq Bakinson, Reece James, Fisayo Dele-Bashiru and Mallik Wilks.
