Adrian Clarke looks at the standout individual statistics by position in the 2019/20 Premier League season so far.
Right-back Pereira has already won two more challenges than he managed in 35 appearances for the Foxes during his debut Premier League campaign.
While the Portuguese has been dribbled past 53 times in 2019/20, he is still extremely adept at winning possession.
Indeed, right-backs in general seem to be the best players in England's top flight at retrieving the ball.
Eight of the top 10 players for most tackles won operate in that position.
|Ricardo Pereira (LEI)||68|
|Aaron Wan-Bissaka (CRY)||66|
|Serge Aurier (TOT)||58|
|Djibril Sidibe (EVE)||43|
Each have been dribbled past only once across a combined 49 matches.
Strong and disciplined in their approach, neither dive in and consequently they are rarely exposed.
|Defender||Times dribbled past|
|Victor Lindelof (MUN)||1|
|Tyrone Mings (AVL)||1|
|Seamus Coleman (EVE)||3|
|Andreas Christensen (CHE)||4|
|Jamaal Lascelles (NEW)||4|
*minimum 15 appearances
Centre-back Tarkowski is also top when it comes to aerial dominance, making the most headed clearances and winning the most aerial duels among all players.
Man Utd's Harry Maguire has also been consistent and sits third in both categories.
|Headed clearances||Aerial duels won|
|James Tarkowski (BUR)||81||James Tarkowski (BUR)||145|
|Chris Basham (SHU)||80||Virgil van Dijk (SOU)||143|
|Harry Maguire (MUN)||80||Harry Maguire (MUN)||136|
|Federico Fernandez (NEW)||79||Ben Mee (BUR)||120|
|Jan Bednarek (SOU)||75||Jack O'Connell (SHU)||114|
Chris Basham warrants a special mention, too.
Not only does he head clear with incredible frequency for Sheffield United but also gets himself into the right positions to intercept passes on the ground.
|Tyrone Mings (AVL)||37||Diego Rico (BOU)||62|
|James Tarkowski (BUR)||37||Chris Basham (SHU)||61|
|Ben Mee (BUR)||30||Jan Bednarek (SOU)||59|
|David Luiz (ARS)||28||Aaron Wan-Bissaka (MUN)||53|
|Toby Alderweireld (TOT)||27||Harry Maguire (MUN)||53|
