Akanji won his lone tackle and logged one clearance during Manchester City's 3-1 win Sunday against West Ham.
ANALYSIS
Akanji helped Manchester City defensively excel from late-April onward with seven clearances and six tackles won across the team's last six games, during which it conceded only two goals. He finished the 2023-24 Premier League with two goals, 13 chances created, 61 clearances, 28 tackles won, 23 interceptions and 12 blocks across 30 appearances (28 starts). Compared to his debut 2022-23 season with Man City, he improved in every one of the aforementioned categories. Akanji provided a promising level of form going into Euro 2024, when he is expected to be an integral rep for Switzerland.
