Jefferson Montero now has one full season under his belt in the Premier League and what an impressive campaign it was for the Ecuadorian. 30 league appearances is no mean feat in this division and it is even more spectacular considering he had to dislodge Nathan Dyer and/or Wayne Routledge in order to get the game time he needed.

He made 30 league appearances, with half of these being starts, however he would have likely made more had he not sustained injuries throughout the campaign.
