Burnley, Boro, Sunderland and Sheffield United stars among Championship's top 20 most creative players this season

More than 1,000 goals have been scored in the Championship so far this season.

With just under six weeks of the 2022-23 campaign still to play, the 24 teams in the second tier have found the net 1,097 times between them.

League leaders Burnley are the division’s highest scorers with 74 while Cardiff City, who are treading water at the other end of the table, have only managed to score 28 times.

Vincent Kompany’s Clarets also boast the meanest defence at that level having conceded 29 while the leakiest defences belong to relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic and Queens Park Rangers, who have both shipped 59 goals.

No goal scorer can thrive without quality service and BetVictor has uncovered the top chance creators this season via data scouting.

The performance rating algorithm considers statistics such as chances created per 90 minutes, xA per game and total minutes played to calculate a ‘creator rating’ and determine who are the highest rated players in the Championship.
