Norwich City's Scotland international winger Robert Snodgrass currently sits top of the EA Sports Player Performance Index for crosses delivered this season with 133, while also taking just 20.2 minutes on average to make a defensive contribution.
Snodgrass has been by far Norwich's most enthusiastic tackler this season, top of the ratings for tackles attempted with 121.
The Canaries are blessed with several midfielders with very complete all-round games, chief among them Anthony Pilkington. Although noted as a dangerous attacker when going forward, Pilkington also possesses the tenacity to track back and help out defensively when required. The Player Performance Index shows Pilkington as having the best tackle success rate in the Norwich squad this season, winning 71.4 per cent of his 28 attempted challenges.
Peter Crouch is the man Stoke will turn to tomorrow to get themselves on the scoresheet.
Crouch, who scored in last week's 2-0 win at Queens Park Rangers for only his second goal since the end of September, combines a solid shot accuracy rate with the ability to consistently put himself in scoring positions. He has managed to hit the target with 60.4 per cent of his 43 attempts on goal.
