Andy Carroll Warms Up

Arsenal, Fulham, Norwich City and West Ham stars all feature.

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

Most aerial duels lost

NameTeamAerial duels lost
Grant Holt Aston Villa 12
Ashley Williams Swansea City 9
Cameron Jerome Crystal Palace 9
Ben Davies Swansea City 7
Andy Carroll West Ham United 7

The surprising name on that list is Andy Carroll because he was at his bullying best against Liverpool.

Most tackles lost

NameTeamTackles lost
Santiago Cazorla Arsenal 5
Jon Flanagan Liverpool 4
Ross Barkley Everton 4
Vurnon Anita Newcastle United 3
Santiago Vergini Sunderland 3

Cazorla isn't the player in the Arsenal midfield you'd typically associate with breaking up the play and being aggressive but his timing was way off against the Toffees, which allowed Everton to maintain a lot of pressure.

Most dribbles overrun

NameTeamDribbles overrun
Seamus Coleman Everton 2
Massadio Haidara Newcastle United 2
Kevin Mirallas Everton 2
Adam Lallana Southampton 2
Adnan Januzaj Manchester United 2

There's not too much to read into this stat as no player produced a higher number of overrun dribbles. For example, Coleman and Mirallas both otherwise played well against Arsenal.

Most unsuccessful touches

NameTeamUnsuccessful touches
Wilfried Bony Swansea City 6
Andy Carroll West Ham United 4
Paulinho Tottenham Hotspur 4
Edin Dzeko Manchester City 4
Papiss Demba Cissé Newcastle United 4

Carroll appars in another section, which suggests his touch was way off. However, a player has to be typically involved in much of the game to produce a high number of touches.

Most fouls committed

NameTeamFouls committed
Ashley Williams Swansea City 5
Steve Sidwell Fulham 5
Erik Pieters Stoke City 5
Morgan Amalfitano West Bromwich Albion 5
Danny Rose Tottenham Hotspur 4

Fortunately for Fulham and Tottenham, the perfoemances of their two players in this list didn't affect the results. Pieters is also a surprising name because he's been one of Stoke's best players this season.

Most shots off target

NameTeamShots off target
Luis Suarez Liverpool 3
Wilfried Bony Swansea City 3
Daniel Sturridge Liverpool 3
Branislav Ivanovic Chelsea 3
Papiss Demba Cissé Newcastle United 3

What an apparently rare bad day at the office for SAS. However, the fact they both had numerous shots off target suggests West Ham gave them plenty of time and space to influence the match.

Most times lost possession

NameTeamTimes lost possession
Russell Martin Norwich City 30
Robert Snodgrass Norwich City 29
Ahmed Elmohamady Hull City 27
Christian Eriksen Tottenham Hotspur 26
Marc Albrighton Aston Villa 25

One of Norwich's main problems over the weekend was hanging onto the ball. Had they protected possession more effectively, they could have got back into the game against the Baggies.
