The Actim Index is calculated using a unique mathematical formula that rates each player's contribution, be it goals, shots, passes, dribbles, tackles, crosses, saves, clearances, blocks, interceptions, time on the pitch or number of points gained by the team with marks deducted for red and yellow cards. Two additional calculations, which take account of player assists and a goalkeeper's clean sheets, have been added for the new season to increase the amount of variables a player is now measured by.
