Moi Gómez has become indispensable for Villarreal in the year since he returned

A successful return. Moi Gómez (Rojales, 23rd June 1994) only needed one season – where he returned to the club where he was formed and made his LaLiga debut – to become an indispensable piece of the Yellow Submarine’s set-up.

The midfielder is towards the top of the statistical lists for the Yellows, which gives an idea of the great season that the midfielder has had.

  • Fourth top scorer for the team with five goals (Granada, Real Madrid, Getafe, Levante y Eibar).
  • Third top assist provider (4)
  • Player with the eighth-most minutes (2,328) and the player who hasplayed the most games in 2019/20, alongside Samu Chukwueze (41).
  • Only on yellow card in 41 games.
  • Fifth most shots (14).
  • Sixth most passes (1049).
  • Seventh most interceptions (25)
  • Seventh most dribbles (20)

The Yellows finished the season with 60 points, enough to finish fifth and give them the right to play in next season’s UEFA Europa League.
