This screen confirms nothing.
1. It is absolutely silly to show totals. How surprising that someone who's played significantly more minutes has better overall production. My "comparison" was intended to show just that.
2. The number of passes played says virtually nothing about an individual's play-making ability, just how much he's on the ball within the team's tactical framework
3. I don't buy your "last season for Santi because of injury" argument. You chose last season because this season Santi's production in chances created and keypasses has been way down in comparison to 15/16 and is basically on par with Dahoud.
4. Lastly, Dahoud turned 21 last month (At Dahoud's age, Santi was on loan at Recreativo Huelva). He's also playing in a team that has been in crisis for most of the season. Direct stat comparisons fall flat on that alone and reach dubious level, when stats (and even seasons) are selected in way that intend to make someone look bad.
