As the Premier League pauses for the FIFA World Cup 2022, we are looking at some of the numbers behind the season so far.
There is a standout performer in terms of tackling across the opening 16 Matchweeks of the season in Fulham's summer signing, Joao Palhinha.
|Joao Palhinha||65||Pascal Struijk||71.4%|
|Tyler Adams||52||Neco Williams||65.9 %|
|Tomas Soucek||47||John McGinn||63.2%|
|Neco Williams||44||Alexis Mac Allister||61.4%|

|Ruben Neves||40||Tomas Soucek||53.2%|
|John McGinn||38||Ruben Neves||45.0%|

The Portuguese defensive midfielder has made 65 tackles so far, 13 more than the next-best player, Tyler Adams.
Palhinha also leads the way for tackles won, with 38, eight clear of Pascal Struijk.
But the Leeds United centre-back is No 1 when it comes to ensuring tackle success, Struijk winning more than 71 per cent of the tackles he has attempted.
