Cooper leads the way

Lions man tops goal involvement chart for defenders in top four tiers

12 November 2018

Jake Cooper has been in tremendous form this season - and has regularly shown his attacking threat from the back.

Following Cooper's assist for Tom Elliott in Saturday's visit to Norwich City, the towering centre-half has now been directly involved in eight Millwall goals this season.

The 23-year-old has scored two - notching against Derby County and Sheffield United at The Den - and claimed a remarkable six assists, the most for a defender in England's top four tiers.

Cooper stands two clear of Watford's Jose Holebas, Wycombe Wanderers' Joe Jacobson and Exeter City's Pierce Sweeney, who have each contributed to six of their sides' goals this campaign.

Six players have been involved in five goals thus far, with Cooper gaining plenty of plaudits for his attacking contribution and aerial ability this season.
