Premier League

Stars from Bournemouth, West Ham United, Manchester City and Sunderland all feature.

With another Premier League weekend completed, there is still much to be worked out at both ends of the table.

As usual, there were heroes up and down the country as the races for both survival and Champions League places heated up.

Jermain Defoe steered Sunderland to the brink of survival at the bottom of the table with his winning goal against Chelsea, while Steven Davis was the star man as Southampton beat Tottenham Hotspur at the other end. 

But who dominated some of the key stats across the weekend? Here are the top 10 from all the Premier League fixtures.

  Accurate Pass
Harry Arter 86
Cesc Fàbregas 79
Nemanja Matic 79

Starting with passing, Bournemouth midfielder Harry Arter was the star as he posted more accurate passes than anyone else, 86, ahead of Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas.

Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez topped the key passes charts though with eight in his side’s 3-1 win over Everton.

Crossing was the domain of West Ham United midfielder Dimitri Payet, as he posted eight accurate crosses in total, one more than Kevin de Bruyne.

Dribbling was dominated by Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, who topped that area with eight successful take-ons in the draw against Arsenal.

  Won Contest
Sergio Agüero 8
Héctor Bellerín 6
Yannick Bolasie 6

Tackling belonged to another Bournemouth man in Charlie Daniels as he managed to win eight in total, although interceptions was dominated by Sunderland star Younes Kaboul, who won seven against Chelsea.
