EA Sports produces almost every conceivable statistic on the English Premier League and its players.
Daryl Janmaat – long distance runner at Newcastle
Things like pass completion, number of shots, number of times a player is dispossessed, the number of saves, the number of crosses taken cleanly – are the types of stats that EA Sports tracks.
And the latest stats coming out show that Newcastle United have two of the hardest working players in the Premier League.
25 year-old Dutch International right back Daryl Janmaat makes those runs down the right wing, and has been a provider of many good crosses that have been turned into goals by our strikers.
Jack Colback – covers a lot of ground
Daryl Janmaat, signed in the summer, has covered 93.7 miles, which ranks him 8th top for the total distance covered in the Premier League.
And Jack Colback is close behind – with Jack having covered 93.6 miles, and he has also played one game less than Daryl.
Some other facts about Janmaat – he’s made 39 successful tackles, more than anyone else in the Newcastle squad and it makes him the 12th best in the league.
Janmaat has also made 34 interceptions, which is the 9th best in the division.
Cesc Fabregas – covered over 100 miles this season
The top player in the league in terms of total distance covered will also be playing tomorrow – it’s the great Cesc Fabregas, the former Arsenal and Barcelona star, who has covered 101.96 miles.
So there will be a lot of hard workers on the field tomorrow, which promises to be just a great game to watch.
