Coleman: Nobody can match Baines

Baines and ColemanEverton defender Seamus Coleman reckons that no defender will ever be able to beat Leighton Baines and his impressive record of 45 Premier League assists.

Baines tops the charts for Premier League defenders, and his Irish team-mate says that it will take a mammoth effort to catch the Englishman who he says will only add to his already impressive tally.

“It [Baines’ record] is about as impressive as it gets for a full-back,” said Coleman. “His delivery is second to none, be it from corners or free-kicks, and since I’ve been here the last five years he’s been probably the best left-back in England with the way he plays week in and week out.

“It’s a great stat and he’s got a plenty of years left in him yet.

“Nobody playing at the moment is anywhere near close to him and he’ll definitely add to those assists over the years. It’ll be a tough record to beat.”
