CHELSEA star Kurt Zouma is the Premier League's best header of a football in the 2020-21 season so far, beating Manchester United captain Harry Maguire.

The Blues defender, 26, has turned his career around under Frank Lampard this season after being on the brink of being sold not long ago.

But Zouma has formed a strong partnership with veteran Brazil star Thiago Silva this season.

And it has led to the Frenchman winning a staggering 96.3 per cent of his aerial duels, according to CIES Football Observatory.

Zouma has won 26 out of his 27 headed battles, easily the best record in the Premier League.

But that success rate of over 96 per cent is also the best in Europe - not just in the 'Big Five' leagues, but the entire continent.

Amongst Premier League players, only Maguire can boast a tally of 90 per cent or more, aside from Zouma.

The Man Utd skipper has won 27 of his 30 aerial battles - a success rate of exactly 90 per cent.

To put Zouma and Maguire's incredible efforts into context, only SIX other players in the entire Premier League can boast a success rate of over 80 per cent.

Everton's Yerry Mina has won 86.2 per cent of his headers, while Burnley star James Tarkowski has a success rate of 85.7 per cent.

Leicester ace Jonny Evans (84.6 per cent) and Aston Villa star Tyrone Mings (83.3 per cent) come in fifth and sixth.

Southampton's Jan Bednarek is seventh with a success rate of 81.4 per cent.

But Bednarek really stands out having attempted an outrageous 43 headers, winning 35 of them - easily the most in the Premier League this term.

Leeds star Liam Cooper (80 per cent), Tottenham's Matt Doherty (78.6 per cent) and Wolves ace Willy Boly (76.9 per cent) complete the top ten.
