Stat Attack: Norwich City still miles ahead of the rest

City goalkeeper John Ruddy has made more than 200 saves in the Premier League this season and is second in the EA Sports Player Performance Index for saves completed, behind Wolves' Wayne Hennessey, who is now injured.

The Player Performance Index also shows that Ruddy completes 1.2 more saves per game on average than Arsenal 'keeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Szczesny has made 155 saves this season, putting him 10th overall.

Norwich remain the hardest-working team in the Premier League this season. They have covered a collective total of 2,386 miles, more than any other side, though no player features in the top five for individual distance covered.

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie scored his 28th Premier League goal of the season in the 1-1 draw at Stoke, taking him two clear of Wayne Rooney at the top of the Player Performance Index.

More than 29 per cent of Van Persie's 96 shots on target have resulted in goals this season. No other Premier League player has had as many shots on target. Van Persie is also Arsenal's marathon man, clocking up 211 miles in total this season. Fulham's Clint Dempsey leads the ratings with 220 miles.
