The Tottenham pair who have run two marathons in their last 10 games

Tottenham Hotspur's Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane are amongst the hardest working players in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino's famously demanding tactical style is highlighted by the fact that two of Tottenham Hotspur's attacking threats feature in the list of hardest working Premier League players.

In the last 10 games, prior to their match against Crystal Palace, Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane had ran over 115km (71 miles), showing their remarkable levels of fitness. 

The pair have effectively run the equivalent of two and a half marathons during their previous 10 fixtures, highlighting they are more than just offensive threats for the team. 

Whether Kane and Eriksen will show any fatigue after their persistent efforts during the latter stages of the season remains to be seen, but they can be very proud of their attempts to help the team.

Their work-rate is something which the rest of the Tottenham squad can look up to and it has been one of the reasons behind the North London club's upturn in form of late.

Although Spurs lost to Crystal Palace at the weekend, they had previously been beaten only once in their nine previous fixtures in all competitions and had climbed into top-four contention as a result.

The side appear to have adapted to Pochettino's methods now and with just a small amount of added quality in January, they could be in for a memorable season.

Despite Eriksen's and Kane's efforts they were still not able to top the list, due to Burnley winger George Boyd's high levels of stamina. The former Hull City man has run a staggering 128km in his last 10 appearances, putting him 10km clear of his nearest challenger.
