Arda Turan has hit the ground running since joining Barcelona winning 16 out of the 17 games he has featured in – drawing just the once.

Turan has been in impressive form but his passing in particular has drawn a lot of praise. The bearded winger started in the 2-2 draw against Villarreal over the weekend and passed at an astonishing 95 percent accuracy.

Last week he managed to achieve a 97 percent of his 67 passes in the 6-0 win over Getafe.

Turan has a season average of 92 percent pass accuracy equal with Thomas Vermaelen according to Whoscored making his the joint most accurate passer in the Barcelona team.

Turan did of course had to wait six-months to make his debut after joining from Atletico Madrid over the summer but it seems to have been worth the wait.

The bearded winger has two goals and four assists in all competitions and Barca are currently on a record breaking 38 match unbeaten streak.

Barcelona have scored 64 times and perhaps more impressively conceded just 12 goals in the 17 games Turan has featured in. Barca have conceded more than a single goal just once over the same time frame.
