Published Add your comment

With Barcelona dominating the tiki take style of football over the last few years, it's been hard for anyone else to compete.

The door seems to have opened slightly this season, with former Barca boss Pep Guardiola instilling the same brand of football at Bayern Munich while new manager Gerardo Martino stamps his own style at the Nou Camp.

But have the Bavarians done enough to knock the pass masters off their perch?

Meanwhile other usual suspects remain high up on this season's best passers list.

Although a struggling Manchester United miss out on the top 10, they still look strong and lie 12th just behind Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Arsenal remain strong passers of the ball, finishing as high as sixth but have been bested by title rivals Manchester City and, surprisingly, Swansea.
