'Playmaker's EFL 72': #71 Anis Mehmeti

2023/04/14 11:15

With the current campaign entering its final straight, Playmaker has again accepted the mammoth task of ranking its top 72 players from across the EFL this season. 

Those who followed 'The Playmaker 72' last season know the drill: this is less a countdown of the 'best' footballers across the EFL, more a celebration of those players who have lit up the Championship, League One and League Two throughout 2022/23.

To once again paraphrase the great Jeffrey 'The Dude' Lebowski, these are just, like, our opinions, man - and we will do our utmost to back up them up with facts, stats and analysis. 

Tally ho!

Number 71: Anis Mehmeti (Bristol City)

After impressing with Wycombe Wanderers, the Albanian looks like he's slowly starting to settle to life at his new club...

Mehmeti started the season on fire for the Chairboys in League One with the winger scoring nine goals (including an absolute belter against Derby County) and assisting two before earning a move up to the second tier when Bristol City secured the 22-year-old’s signature in January.

It’s taken a while for Mehmeti to get back in the groove at his new club – an adjustment that’s not easy for a young player to make midway through a season.

While the first half of Mehmeti's season alone is probably worth a spot in the ‘Playmaker 72’ on its own, we are seeing glimpses of his true potential.

Not only does Mehmeti have the most shots per 90 minutes for his club, but the 3.8 attempts on target per 90 he has amassed also place him third out of all Championship players so far this season. With the Albanian at long last off the mark for the Robins after bagging the winner against Stoke City last week we will hopefully see the floodgates open.

His performances have certainly shown that he is a constant danger and if he is able to improve his decision-making, something that will likely come naturally with age and experience, then he is only on an upward trajectory. 

Indeed, he has already done enough to convince his country with Mehmeti making his senior debut for the Albanian national team back in March as a 70th-minute substitute.

Perhaps next season we’ll see him at his electric best for Bristol City: dribbling past players and regularly finding the net.
