Plaudits come in for Said Benrahma

February form rewarded for Algerian attacker

3 March 2019

Said Benrahma's superb February form has been recognised in a number of selections over the past few days.

The Algerian attacker really hit his straps in February, scoring four goals, including a sublime hat-trick against Hull City, and contributing six assists as The Bees netted 16 times during the month. The 23-year-old now leads the Sky Bet Championship assist charts with 11 and added his ninth goal of the season during yesterday's 3-0 derby day win over Queens Park Rangers. 

That form earned Said a place in the WhoScored.com Team of the Month (pictured above), with the joint-highest average rating of 8.3 for the month. Among those scores were two perfect 10's against Blackburn Rovers and Hull City, the first time any player has registered two 'perfect' performances this season. 

Said is also the second tier's most in-form player according to the Sky Sport Power Rankings, which reflects a player's performance by awarding points for 34 different stats. The winger is nearly 2,500 points clear of Steven Fletcher in second with Teemu Pukki in third. 

A place in the FIFA Ultimate 'Team Team Of The Week' was also Said's following his hat-trick against Hull City last weekend. Said took his spot in the selection alongside the likes of Lionel Messi, Jayden Sancho, and Wilfred Zaha.
