After an enthralling Premier League season, we have analysed the key stats powered by Oracle and will show you in a series of articles revealing which players have run furthest or fastest, had the most shots or displayed ruthlessness in front of goal over the course of the last 10 months, not only overall but at each of the 20 clubs.

Tackles made

Fulham's Joao Palhinha has picked up where he left off last season and for the second consecutive campaign has produced more tackles than any of his peers in the Premier League.

Indeed, the midfielder made 152 tackles, winning 75 of them, surpassing his total of 148 tackles in his 2022/23 debut season for Marco Silva's side.

Other players who shone include Wolverhampton Wanderers' Joao Gomes, who was the closest to Palhinha with 128 tackles, three ahead of Vinicius Souza. The Sheffield United midfield enforcer did lead for tackles won, though, with 76. 

There were also notable contributions from Emerson (106) and Tyrick Mitchell (105), from Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace, respectively.
