Segio Aguero Argentina

Manchester City, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur, Hull City and Chelsea stars all feature.

The Premier League saw further movement at the top and bottom of the table throughout October with Chelsea consolidating their lead at the top while Newcastle United started to pull clear of the bottom three.

We’ve taken a look at the best performers in several key areas of the stats throughout last month.

Diafra Sakho FW West Ham 3 3 269
Alexis Sánchez FW Arsenal 3 3 259

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero scored more goals than any other player, which helped his side keep the pressure up on Chelsea at the top of the Premier League. He also got November off to a good start with a goal against Manchester United yesterday.

Chris Brunt MF West Brom 2 3 267
Aaron Cresswell DF West Ham 2 3 270

Everton defender Leighton Baines was the best player in terms of assists. He’s superb in dead ball situations and also attacks well down the left hand side, making it difficult for teams at both ends of the pitch.

Saves

Hugo Lloris GK Tottenham 11 3 270

Brad Guzan GK Aston Villa 10 3 270
Simon Mignolet GK Liverpool 10 3 270
Adrián GK West Ham 9 3 270

Two goalkeepers share the most saves stats for October, with Hugo Lloris having a better month with Tottenham Hotspur than Vito Mannone had with Sunderland. Were it not for Mannone, that defeat against Southampton could have been worse and possibly reached double figures.

Tackles

Mathieu Flamini MF Arsenal 11 3 243

Yoan Gouffran FW Newcastle 11 3 237

Mo Diame has taken to life at Hull City like a duck to water. He’s been superb in terms of making tackles and breaking up the play effectively, which makes it tough for any side playing against Hull to maintain pressure in games.

Accurate Passes

Yaya Toure played more accurate passes than any other player but it’s encouraging for Chelsea fans to see Cesc Fabregas maintaining a position on this list. The Spaniard’s good form already this season has been maintained.
