Some interesting stats I saw. United covering the least ground is surely a talking point, while Man City are sprinting so much more often that the other teams. Doucore, Gross and Jay Rodriguez are in the top 10 for both distance and sprints so far which is quite impressive. It's really hard to cover a lot of ground as an attacker when you are sprinting and making runs so often which tire you down so I thought that was quite impressive.

Indeed interesting. City sprinting a lot fit with their agressive pressing and them making a lot of run, so I guess it make sense. Its also strange to see United behind the other big six team when it come to distance and amount of sprint. Maybe someone should show these number to Mourinho. :(

Leave it to Mourinho's rigid defending and the players will feel like it's a light training session :D

Stats would say that Nemanja Matic is running/working alot harder than his teamates

I wonder if Kante would be top at most distance covered without the injury. However I'm pretty surprised Xhaka is there.

Not surprised by United with their manager :)

@quikzyyy He would be first and second, because he is running so fast, the analysis would count him as two person. ;P
