With over half of the 2023/24 Premier League matches completed, we take a look at the key statistics so far, discovering the top 10 players and who is the leading player for that measurement at each of the other clubs.

Furthest distance run in a match

Dejan Kulusevski is the player who has run furthest in a single match, covering 13.36km during Tottenham Hotspur's 2-1 win over Everton in December. That is 50 metres more than his nearest rival, Pascal Gross, who covered 13.31km in Brighton & Hove Albion's 4-2 win over Spurs.

Kulusevski appears twice in the top 10 list, with his 13km shift against AFC Bournemouth the sixth-highest distance recorded.

West Ham United midfielder Tomas Soucek also features twice in the top 10, having exceeded the 13km mark in matches against Brighton and Nottingham Forest.

Soucek's team-mate James Ward-Prowse, who tops the list of total distance run this season, also makes the top 10 on this list for his performance in the same match against Forest.
