Top performers from gameweek 30 in the English Barclays Premier League - Hazard, Henderson and more

Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool and West Brom stars all feature.

We've taken a look at some of the top peformers from the latest round of the English Barclays Premier League.

Most successful final third passes

NameTeamSuccessful final third passes
Eden Hazard Chelsea 31
Jordan Henderson Liverpool 25
David Silva Manchester City 24
Gareth Barry Everton 23
Willian Chelsea 23

No surprise to see Hazard appearing on this list. He's been world class this season and Jordan Henderson also deserves a mention because he made it difficult for United to get possession away from their defence.

Most tackles won

NameTeamTackles won
Jon Flanagan Liverpool 7
Fabio Cardiff City 7
Marc Muniesa Stoke City 7
Marcos Alonso Sunderland 6
Joe Allen Liverpool 6

Three players can't be separated on this list but Flanagan deserves a mention for a very mature performance in a hostile environment at Old Trafford. He gets better and better.

Most effective clearances

NameTeamEffective clearances
Curtis Davies Hull City 21
Per Mertesacker Arsenal 20
Fernando Amorebieta Fulham 17
Laurent Koscielny Arsenal 15
Damien Delaney Crystal Palace 15

Davies' heroics at the back weren't enough to stop his side from losing but Arsenal's Mertesacker was influential in helping his side to keep a clean sheet, as Tottenham piled the pressure onto their local rivals.

Most accurate passes

NameTeamAccurate passes
Angel Rangel Swansea City 93
Leon Britton Swansea City 84
Gareth Barry Everton 83
José Cañas Swansea City 78
Morgan Schneiderlin Southampton 77

The disappointing thing about the three Swansea stars featuring on this list is that they couldn't stop a defeat at home to West Brom. Accurate passing is important but Swansea struggled to convert that skill into goals.

Most touches

Angel Rangel Swansea City 137
Gareth Barry Everton 106
Leighton Baines Everton 103
Leon Britton Swansea City 103
Morgan Schneiderlin Southampton 102

The Everton guys get a mention in this section because they were both superb in terms of their touch and positioning throughout the win against Cardiff. Baines made sure there was an outlet for the defence while Barry connected the back four and the midfield superbly.

Most interceptions

Youssuf Mulumbu West Bromwich Albion 8
Ashley Williams Swansea City 5
Craig Dawson West Bromwich Albion 5
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Arsenal 5
Pablo Zabaleta Manchester City 4

Mulumbu read the game brilliantly against Swansea, which made it difficult for the Swans to move the ball forward. Intercepting the ball allowed Mulumbu to offload and the Baggies to keep up the pressure.

Most total attack assists

NameTeamTotal attack assists
James Morrison West Bromwich Albion 4
Eden Hazard Chelsea 4
Ahmed Elmohamady Hull City 4
Ashley Westwood Aston Villa 4
Alexander Kacaniklic Fulham 4

Again, it's not surprising to see Hazard near the top of this list. Morrison deserves some praise because he's now given Pepe Mel a problem in terms of improving his chances of starting over the rest of the season.

Most successful dribbles

NameTeamSuccessful dribbles
Eden Hazard Chelsea 5
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Arsenal 4
Daniel Sturridge Liverpool 4
Jay Rodriguez Southampton 4
Guy Demel West Ham United 4

The Belgian just keeps on appearing, with more successful dribbles over the weekend than any other player. He has to be somwhere near the pak of his form at the moment.

Most shots on target

NameTeamShots on target
Rickie Lambert Southampton 2
Jonathan De Guzmán Swansea City 2
Fraizer Campbell Cardiff City 2
Marko Arnautovic Stoke City 2
Cameron Jerome Crystal Palace 2

Nothing really to read into this section as there's nothing which separates the top performers. De Guzman and Campbell will feel annoyed as their efforts came in losing causes.

Most saves

Adrián West Ham United 6
Vito Mannone Sunderland 5
Joe Hart Manchester City 5
David Marshall Cardiff City 4
David de Gea Manchester United 4

Mannone gets the nod in this section because were it not for his saves, the Black Cats wouldn't have kept a clean sheet for a vital point against Crystal Palace.
